Johnson City's Norris to play in MLB Futures Game

Former Science Hill High School ace Daniel Norris will represent the Blue Jays organization in Major League Baseball's Futures Game on Sunday, July 13.

Norris, a 21-year-old left-hander, started this year at Class-A Dunedin — going 6-0 with a Florida State League-leading 1.22 ERA in 13 starts — before recently being promoted to Double-A New Hampshire of the Eastern League.

He made his second start of the season for the Fisher Cats on Tuesday night and picked up his first win with the Manchester-based team.

A second-round draft pick in 2011, Norris is on the U.S. roster for the annual prospect showcase that precedes the MLB All-Star game, which will be held at Target Field in Minneapolis on July 15.
