Padres | Derek Norris out Thursday

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:54:23 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is out of the lineup Thursday, July 23, against the Miami Marlins. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order against RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting just .125 against righties this season, and he shouldn't be considered even by FantasyScore owners punting the catcher position.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki to lose starter job?

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:25:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki could lose his starting job if the Twins' pursuit of a starting catcher at the trade deadline works out. The Twins are looking at targets like Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski, San Diego Padres C Derek Norris, Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy, and Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has lost some of his punch at the plate, as his batting average has dropped to .227 this season. Keep an eye on what the Twins do before July 31 and be prepared to drop Suzuki outright if he loses a chunk of his playing time.

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:03:35 -0700

Padres | Derek Norris dropped to sixth in lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 14:58:43 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris was dropped to sixth in the batting lineup Saturday, July 11, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is hitting .158 in the last week, which may account for the demotion in the lineup. As long as he's not hitting, you should keep Norris out of your lineup as well.

Padres | Derek Norris leading off

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 12:17:43 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is leading off against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is far from your traditional leadoff hitter, and his .241 batting average and .289 on-base percentage shouldn't instill much confidence. Burnett is ultra stingy at home, and there is the threat of nasty weather, too. FantasyScore players should view Norris as a complete wildcard Monday.

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:42:45 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. C Austin Hedges will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been dealing with an injury and is receiving a day off. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting only .119 on the season and should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris playing through pain

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:41:40 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (shoulder) is in the lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, July 4, despite having an AC sprain of his left shoulder, according to manager Pat Murphy.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Saturday, Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was batting .238 with 11 homers and 45 RBIs. Even though his injury appears minor enough where he's able to play through it, FantasyScore owners should be aware that he is not at 100 percent.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out vs. Cards

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Austin Hedges draws into the lineup behind the plate with C Derek Norris playing first base. Norris is batting second, and Hedges is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having one of the best runs of his career and sports a respectable .310/.396/.402 slash line this season. Just don't count on much help in the home run or stolen base columns. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .305 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere. Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), on the other hand, has a career .374 wOBA and .857 OPS against southpaws and is an excellent option for daily players Thursday.
