Left-handed pitcher Daniel Norris will make his first start of spring training Wednesday when the Detroit Tigers visit the New York Yankees in Tampa. “It’s definitely different than throwing bullpens,” Norris said Tuesday morning at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla. “Look forward to getting out there and competing. New pitching coach Chris Bosio spent his first day in TigerTown working extensively with Norris during a bullpen session. Norris missed a workout on Feb. 19 to see Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. It was a follow-up visit about the groin injury that bothered him for most of last season. Norris’ has dealt with inconsistency and injuries during the past two seasons. Norris had a 3.38 ERA and a 1.399 WHIP in 14 appearances for the Tigers in 2016. He struggled in 2017 over 22 appearances, including 18 starts; he finished with a 5.31 ERA and a 1.614 WHIP and struck out 86 over 101 2/3 innings. He spent the offseason working at P3 — the Peak Performance Project. He worked at P3’s main site in Santa Barbara, Calif. For over a month. He later worked out at a facility they opened in Atlanta.
