It's important to keep all options open in the days leading up to the trade deadline, and apparently Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers is doing just that.

The D-backs have lost out on the Jake Peavy sweepstakes, as the right-hander has reportedly been traded to the Boston Red Sox, but are still in the running for Houston Astros pitcher Bud Norris.

As first reported by's Brian McTaggart, the D-backs are one of the three teams -- along with the Baltimore Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates -- trying to acquire the Houston Astros right-hander.

Norris, who was removed from his start Tuesday, has a 6-9 record with a 3.93 ERA in 2013.

For his career, the 28-year-old is 34-46 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. His current contract with the Astros expires in 2015.
