Padres | Derek Norris resting Monday

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:15:37 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is out of the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 3, against the Milwaukee Brewers and RHP Wily Peralta. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 2-for-4 with a walk in his second-to-last start, but his upside is rather low. Hedges will offer cap relief, but FantasyScore owners should look for someone with a higher upside.

Padres | Derek Norris has big game Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 19:08:48 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris had his first career five-hit game that included a grand slam in the team's win over the New York Mets Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is still hitting only .214 (15-for-70) with one home run and four RBI this month, and his season average has dropped to .238. Perhaps his big game last night will spark him, but he's probably not attractive to many owners on FantasyScore right now unless you're using him as an under-the-radar play.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:23:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is out of the lineup Thursday, July 30, with C Derek Norris filling in at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting second against left-hander Jon Niese. He's hitting just .154 this month and hasn't overwhelmed against lefties with a .257-1-5 clip. He's not a good option on FantasyScore today.

Padres | Derek Norris sitting out vs. Mets

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:24:37 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. His seasonal value has fallen off a cliff, too, as he sports a .163/.221/.319 slash line over 172 plate appearances since the beginning of June. Though, he does have seven of his 11 home runs this season during the span. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday, but you should likely aim higher.

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.

Padres | Derek Norris catching Sunday

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

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris will bat second against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) returns to action after receiving the day off Saturday, July 18. He is 1-for-2 against Butler in his career but is just hitting .167 during the month of July, with seven hits in 42 at-bats and no RBIs. You can find more productive catchers in FantasyScore today for a lower price.

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is out of the lineup Saturday, July 18, with C Austin Hedges behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting just .143 and isn't worth using on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 11:04:44 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Sunday, July 12. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is receiving a scheduled day off. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) only has five hits in 45 at-bats this year and should be avoided in FantasyScore.

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.
