Astros trade rumors: Noon updates on Bud Norris

Doug Pensinger

No news on Bud Norris yet, but plenty of rumors fill the Twitter-waves at noon.

Well, no news is good news on Bud Norris. There appears to be a lot going on right now, but as always at the trade deadline, you can only believe half of what you see on your Twitter feed.

Here are the updates since the last time we wrote about Bud:

Three teams in for sure, via Brian McTaggart, are Orioles, Pirates and Diamondbacks with the Giants also involved.

Later, Jeff Passan throws the Braves into the mix.

Except that two different sources deny the Braves are in on Norris at all.

We also have some more details about the Pirates trade package. It's not overwhelming and involves lots of low-level prospects not named Tyler Glasnow.

Brian T. Smith says that Houston has "standing offers" for Norris, but is just waiting for teams to increase offers.

The Astros have standing offers for No. 1 starter Bud Norris but are hoping a team increases its pitch during the final hours before a 3 p.m. CT non-waiver trade deadline, a league source with knowledge of negotiations said Wednesday morning.

And that's that for now. Three hours left. Something may happen. It may not. If no team increases their offer from what's being reported now, I'm leaning towards Norris staying in a Houston uniform until the winter.
