Another top pitching prospect welcomed by Bisons

The Buffalo Bisons will again welcome the top pitching prospect in the Toronto Blue Jays organization to its starting rotation.

First, it was Marcus Stroman. Then it was Aaron Sanchez.

Now, it’s Daniel Norris.

The 21-year old left-hander sent news of his promotion via Twitter Wednesday night. The Buffalo Bisons had a scheduled off day before opening a five-game, four-day series with Durham in North Carolina.

Drafted in the second round in 2011, Norris started 13 games in Single-A Dunedin then eight games with Double-A New Hampshire. With the FisherCats he went 3-1 with a 4.54 earned run average.
