Analysis: Norris may not be the Angels' long-term solution at closer, but he's kept a firm grasp on the role by posting an impressive 0.98 ERA and going 7 for 7 in save chances over his last 20 appearances. The converted starter has 24 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings during that time frame.
July 9 3:44 PM PT4:44 PM MT5:44 PM CT6:44 PM ET18:44 ET22:44 GMT6:44 3:44 PM MST5:44 PM EST6:14 PM VEN2:44 UAE (+1)5:44 PM CT-Bud Norris recorded his 13th save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.0 inning, as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Texas Rangers 3-0 on Sunday.

Analysis: Before being sidelined by right knee inflammation, Norris was excelling in the closer's role as he converted 11 of 13 save chances. He had been filling in for the injured Cam Bedrosian, who got the job with Huston Street out, but now both are back in action, so Norris' role is unclear.
June 18 6:50 PM PT7:50 PM MT8:50 PM CT9:50 PM ET21:50 ET1:50 GMT9:50 6:50 PM MST8:50 PM EST9:20 PM VEN5:50 UAE (+1)8:50 PM CT-Bud Norris allowed one hit without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the Los Angeles Angels lost to the Kansas City Royals 7-3 on Sunday.

June 17 10:59 AM PT11:59 AM MT12:59 PM CT1:59 PM ET13:59 ET17:59 GMT1:59 10:59 AM MST12:59 PM EST1:29 PM VEN21:59 UAE12:59 PM CT-Bud Norris did not allow a hit or walk in 1.0 scoreless inning as the Los Angeles Angels lost to the Kansas City Royals 3-1 on Friday. Norris struck out one, ending the game with a 2.51 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Norris has pitched well in the closer's role in Cam Bedrosian's absence, logging 11 saves with a 2.59 ERA and .200 opposing hitters batting average. However, he could be losing value with Bedrosian set to return.
June 14 8:19 AM PT9:19 AM MT10:19 AM CT11:19 AM ET11:19 ET15:19 GMT23:19 8:19 AM MST10:19 AM EST10:49 AM VEN19:19 UAE10:19 AM CT-Bud Norris allowed one hit without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the New York Yankees 3-2 on Tuesday.

Norris struck out one, ending the game with a 2.67 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The Angels' closer came on in the eighth inning and gave up the tiebreaking, two-run homer to slugger Aaron Judge. More performances like this in the near future could put Norris' role as the closer in jeopardy with Cam Bedrosian (groin) nearing a return as he starts a rehab assignment this week.
June 11 4:42 PM PT5:42 PM MT6:42 PM CT7:42 PM ET19:42 ET23:42 GMT7:42 4:42 PM MST6:42 PM EST7:12 PM VEN3:42 UAE (+1)6:42 PM CT-Bud Norris did not allow a hit or walk in 1.0 scoreless inning as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Houston Astros 12-6 on Sunday.

Norris struck out one, ending the game with a 2.77 ERA and 1.08 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Scioscia stuck with Jose Alvarez in the ninth, even though he had Norris and his 10 saves warming up in the bullpen. Scioscia said Norris is still recovering from a minor knee injury.

Norris struck out one, ending the game with a 2.92 ERA and 1.01 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Norris did allow a solo homer to Marcell Ozuna in the ninth inning, but the good news is he was healthy enough to go after leaving Friday's game after throwing just three pitches due to a sore right knee.
May 26 8:16 PM PT9:16 PM MT10:16 PM CT11:16 PM ET23:16 ET3:16 GMT11:16 8:16 PM MST10:16 PM EST10:46 PM VEN7:16 UAE (+1)10:16 PM CT-Norris consulted with a trainer and departed after throwing only three pitches in the ninth inning Friday in Miami.

Apr. 30 5:57 PM PT6:57 PM MT7:57 PM CT8:57 PM ET20:57 ET0:57 GMT8:57 5:57 PM MST7:57 PM EST8:27 PM VEN4:57 UAE (+1)7:57 PM CT-Bud Norris recorded his fifth save, allowing no runs on no hits and one walk in 1.1 innings, as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Texas Rangers 5-2 on Sunday. Norris struck out four, ending the game with a 2.57 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Norris has converted five straight save opportunities, allowing two hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings with three walks and nine strikeouts.
Apr. 28 9:07 AM PT10:07 AM MT11:07 AM CT12:07 PM ET12:07 ET16:07 GMT0:07 9:07 AM MST11:07 AM EST11:37 AM VEN20:07 UAE11:07 AM CT-Bud Norris recorded his fourth save, allowing no runs on no hits and one walk in 1.0 inning, as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Thursday. Norris struck out one, ending the game with a 2.84 ERA and 1.03 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The former starter is blossoming as a closer for now with Huston Street and Cam Bedrosian are both injured. Norris never recorded a save in his previous eight seasons but now has converted four in a row, yielding two hits in four scoreless innings. "He's walking around like a closer,'' Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. ''He's filling the role and doing a great job.''
Apr. 23 9:51 AM PT10:51 AM MT11:51 AM CT12:51 PM ET12:51 ET16:51 GMT0:51 9:51 AM MST11:51 AM EST12:21 PM VEN20:51 UAE11:51 AM CT-Norris threw a scoreless ninth inning to notch his first career save by closing out Saturday's 5-4 win over Toronto.
Analysis: With Cam Bedrosian, Huston Street and Andrew Bailey all on the DL, Norris appears to be the Angels' interim closer. The 32-year-old owns a career 5.04 ERA as a reliever, so he's not exactly the most appealing of options.
