After scratching him from his scheduled Tuesday start at Baltimore, the Houston Astros are actively looking to trade starting pitcher Bud Norris, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.

MLB's non-waiver trade deadline is Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Norris has been with the Astros since he made his debut in 2009. Only relief pitcher Wesley Wright has been with the club longer.

The 28-year-old right-hander won't be a free agent until after the 2015 season. He has a 3.93 ERA this season with a 1.41 WHIP and a 6-9 record.
