LAKELAND, Fla. — Tigers starter Daniel Norris exited because of tightness in his lower back after getting just one out and Toronto Blue Jays went on to beat Detroit 16-1 Tuesday.
Norris, competing for the final spot in the rotation, gave up three runs on three hits and two walks.
Norris was scratched from his previous start over the weekend because of a stiff back. He is considered day-to-day.
Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in five runs. Darrell Ceciliani also homered for Toronto.
Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison gave up one run in four innings.
