Orioles pitcher Bud Norris leads the team in wins (7) and earned run average (3.62) this season.

The Baltimore Orioles placed pitcher Bud Norris on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain, the team announced Friday.

The move is retroactive to June 22.

The team recalled right handers Evan Meek and Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk to replace Norris on the roster.

Norris left his start last Saturday, a 6-1 win over the New York Yankees, after five innings when he felt tightness in his groin after throwing a fastball.

After throwing a bullpen session on Wednesday, Norris was scratched from his scheduled Friday start. 

Norris (7-5) has won his last four starts, and has a 3.62 ERA to go along with 60 strikeouts and a 1.16 WHIP this season for the Orioles, who come into this weekend's series against the Tampa Bay Rays two games behind the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League East.
