Padres | Derek Norris takes a seat

Wed, 04 May 2016 10:45:58 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with C Christian Bethancourt hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt is just 4-for-20 (.200) on the year, and he doesn't have enough upside to stream against Tyler Chatwood.

Padres | Derek Norris not bothered by rumors

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:33:57 -0700

Entering play Thursday, April 28, San Diego Padres C Derek Norris was batting just .145 with 20 strikeouts through his first 69 at-bats of the season. However, he is not willing to blame his slump on swirling trade rumors. "For me, it's just control what's controllable," Norris said. "You can't control trades. You can't control action or promotions, demotions. I think just focus on what's in front of you, competing each and every day, going out there and doing your job to the best of your ability."

Fantasy Tip: Despite occasional struggles on defense, combined with his slow start at the plate, it appears as though Norris is not in danger of losing playing time in the immediate future, especially with C Austin Hedges (hand) sidelined for at least one month due to hand surgery. Norris could have some value in NL-only and two-catcher leagues but should be avoided in most other formats for now.

Padres | Two starters sitting for Padres

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:58:33 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and 3B Adam Rosales are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Sunday, April 24. Brett Wallace will start at third base and is batting fifth, while C Christian Bethancourt will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has only one hit in 16 at-bats this season and should be avoided in all leagues. Bethancourt has gone 3-for-16 in limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Padres | Derek Norris showing signs of life

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 17:14:10 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris has hit safely in his last four games with a home run, double, four runs scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has the night off Thursday, and he's now 9-for-49 (.184) on the year with a homer and just two RBI. It's still early, though, and his recent stretch could lead to more consistent results for the Friar catcher. Norris is a midrange fantasy catcher and a solid No. 2 in two-catcher setups.

Padres | Derek Norris takes a seat

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:32:25 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt isn't known for his offense, and he's facing a tough matchup against an elite starter in Cole tonight. Look elsewhere for your starting backstop in daily formats.

Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:42:55 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista is at shortstop and is hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff. Also, 3B Adam Rosales gets a start at third base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff is an impressive young pitcher for the Phils, so the Padres could have trouble with him in the series finale. Bethancourt, Amarista and Rosales are all low-end options in daily formats today.

Padres | Derek Norris not starting

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 12:17:12 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Sunday, April 10. C Christian Bethancourt will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt will only receive a few starts a week and likely will only have value in NL-only leagues. Owners in deeper leagues and daily fantasy leagues should be able to find better starting candidates to use.

Rangers | Derek Norris on Texas wish list

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 23:42:52 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is considered a likely target by the Texas Rangers, a team which is surveying the market for a possible catching addition, according to three sources. The Rangers could consider a trade for the catch who is under control through 2018.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have Robinson Chirinos, and they're happy with him, but they are thin on depth behind him. Norris could see plenty of playing time if he is added, as the Rangers want to keep Chirinos in the 70-80 game range.

Rangers | Texas looking at Derek Norris

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 16:42:51 -0700

The Texas Rangers continue to search for catchers on the trade market, and their most likely target now is San Diego Padres C Derek Norris, according to a source. Norris would cost less in terms of prospects than Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy, and Norris also comes with a lower salary ($2.9 million). Norris would also be under club control through 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Norris won't be of much help in the average department, but he has 20-homer power and is attractive as a midrange fantasy catcher. A move to Texas would only bolster his value, although Robinson Chirinos would be hurt considerably in a part-time role.
