Detroit Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris says he is cancer-free after undergoing surgery to remove a growth on his thyroid.
Toronto traded Norris, MLB.com’s No. 17 prospect last spring, to the Tigers as part of the David Price deal. He said that the Tigers were aware of his health when the deal was made. Doctors concluded that he could pitch the rest of the season without jeopardizing his health.
Detroit added him to the major league roster right after the trade and he had a 3.68 ERA in eight starts with his new team. In August, he hit a home run in his first career at-bat.
