(DETROIT) – The Detroit Tigers beat the trade deadline by sending LHP Daniel Norris to the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league RHP Reese Olsen. The move came six years to the day after Norris was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays as part of the David Price trade. Detroit recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo to take Norris' roster spot. The 28 year old Norris is 1-3 with a 5.89 ERA in 38 relief appearances this season, but he's pitched much better lately. He hasn't allowed a run or a hit over his last five outings. Norris has struck out 40 batters in 36 2/3 innings. Left-handed hitters are batting just .200 against him. Olson, 22, was 5-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 14 starts this season for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the Brewers' Class A affiliate in Appleton. The 2008 13th-round draft pick has struck out 79 batters over 69 innings.
