LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) It's another spring and another chance for Daniel Norris to make the Detroit Tigers' pitching rotation.
This time, the 25-year-old left-hander is trying a more aggressive, mixed-martial arts approach to his training that includes tae kwon do, jiujitsu and kickboxing.
"I'm really conscious about my body, and I know that's odd to hear because I'm hurt all the time," Norris said Friday. "But I really care about my body. I really work hard on it, so I'm looking for ways to get better and stay healthy. This made a lot of sense to me."
