Astros manager Bo Porter decided to skip Bud Norris from his scheduled turn in the rotation Sunday. Porter wanted to reward Norris’ strong first half with nine days of rest while also keeping his best pitcher available in case Detroit manager Jim Leyland called with a spot on the American League All-Star team due to an injury to another pitcher.
