Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that "a few teams" are considering trades for Astros' right-hander Bud Norris.

It appears some teams would rather trade for the upside of Norris than pay the price for mediocre backend starters in free agency. Norris posted a 4.65 ERA and 165/66 K/BB ratio over 168 1/3 innings this past season with the Astros and is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
