Daniel Norris went all out to impress in his debut with the Detroit Tigers. The 22-year-old left-hander, acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays as the key piece for David Price, made his first start for Detroit on Sunday and put together a stirring performance. [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] A solo home run by Chris Davis in the fourth inning was the only run Norris allowed over 7 1/3 innings in a 6-1 Tigers win . He gave up four hits, struck out five and walked just one. On top of pitching a great game, Norris also showed he may have a Gold Glove in his future as well. In the bottom of the second, Norris was in a bit of a jam. The Orioles had runners on first and second and Norris had yet to record an out in the inning. Baltimore’s J.J. Hardy attempted to bunt the runners over, but he didn’t make good contact and popped it up halfway between the plate and the mound on the first base side. Norris came flying off the mound and caught the ball at full-stretch in a splendid display of athleticism. After dusting himself off, he got Jimmy Paredes to ground into an inning-ending double-play. That’s some poise right there. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] ”You always want to make a good impression. If you go out there and try to do too much the wheels can fall off rather quickly. I thought I did a fine job of staying within myself and pitching my game,” Norris told reporters after the game . It’s just one start, but a few more outings like that and it won’t be long before Norris is known just as much for his pitching ability as he is for living in a 1978 Volkswagen van for parts of the offseason .

The Kansas City Royals made it look all so easy in 2014. With their bullpen trio of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland, the Royals were almost unbeatable when they had the lead in the seventh inning or later.

If Yoenis Cespedes is feeling the pressure to lead the New York Mets to their first trip to the playoffs in nine years, he’s certainly not showing it. The slugging outfielder, acquired from Detroit in a trade-deadline deal Friday afternoon, was the model of cool Saturday before his first game with New York. To make room for Cespedes, the Mets sent top prospect Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Coming off two straight high-scoring games decided by a single run, the Baltimore Orioles were delighted with a victory devoid of anxiety and stress. Caleb Joseph homered and drove in three runs, Kevin Gausman allowed four hits over seven innings and the Orioles cruised past the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Saturday night. The game was decidedly different that the two that preceded it, a 9-8 Detroit win on Thursday night and an 8-7 duel Friday in which the Orioles rallied from a six-run deficit.

Loaded with talented young pitchers, it has been understood for months the New York Mets’ plan was to add a proven hitter before the trade deadline to foster a playoff push. Yoenis Cespedes will make his Mets debut Saturday night at Citi Field while Jacob deGrom takes the ball looking to help New York pull closer to the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. While a rotation led by deGrom, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard has helped the Mets (53-50) to the majors’ third-best ERA at 3.26, their offensive ineptitude has hampered their playoff hopes.

With mere hours until the trade deadline, the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays have sent a clear message that they’re going for it – making big moves to try and propel their teams into the playoffs for the first time in a long time. The Astros haven’t reached the postseason since being swept by the White Sox in the 2005 World Series. Toronto’s playoff drought is the longest in the majors, with its last trip coming in 1993, when Joe Carter’s home run won the World Series.
