Orioles activate Norris from DL


The Sports Network

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Baltimore Orioles have activated pitcher Bud Norris off the 15-day disabled list.

Norris had been sidelined since late June because of a strained right groin. He entered Tuesday's start against Washington with a record of 7-5 and a 3.62 ERA in 14 starts this season.

The Orioles designated pitcher Julio DePaula for assignment. The 31-year-old right-hander had his contract selected from Double-A Bowie on Monday, but did not pitch against the Nationals.

DePaula had surrendered just three hits with eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings at Bowie after signing with the Orioles in late June. He had been pitching for York of the independent Atlantic League.
