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.

Padres | Derek Norris shedding weight

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:48:47 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris began the season weighing 232 pounds. He said he currently weighs 220 pounds Friday, June 26, which is the lowest he has weighed since he was in high school.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has done solid work in the counting stat department with 38 runs, nine home runs and 41 RBI. However, seasonal owners would love to see a little improvement to his .246 batting average and .294 on-base percentage. Regarding his weight loss, Norris's statistics have progressively dwindled monthly. Though, there may not be any correlation to his playing weight. Facing a left-handed hurler Friday, Norris is a high-end catcher option at FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris not playing

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 12:10:22 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has fallen on hard times of late, going just 13-for-79 (.165) with five home runs and nine RBI in June to drop his average under .250. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .114 (4-for-35) in limited duty. He's not one to click on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:28:03 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Oakland Athletics. C Austin Hedges is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is likely getting a night off because of his weak batting average (.211) in the past week. His splits against left-handed pitching like Scott Kazmir and his average at home are actually pretty good. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) carries no fantasy value.

Padres | Derek Norris not in lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:21:54 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 16. Austin Hedges is starting in his place and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure Norris isn't in your FantasyScore DFS lineup. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could be a desperation play against Oakland LHP Scott Kazmir, but it's risky, as he's not typically an offensive threat.

Padres | Will Venable hitting second

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 16:05:33 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Will Venable will hit second in the order Saturday, June 13, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and SP Zack Greinke. C Derek Norris has been dropped to sixth in the lineup, and 3B Will Middlebrooks comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .268 with five home runs, 17 runs scored and 15 RBI against right-handed pitching on the season. Venable is strikeout prone, and it's a very difficult matchup again an elite pitcher, but FantasyScore owners can give him a look for GPP tournaments.

Padres | No Derek Norris vs. Atlanta

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:20:13 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. C Austin Hedges receives the start and will hit eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a better defensive catcher than he is with the stick at the major league level right now, and he has just two hits in 21 at-bats (.091) so far. He's not facing an overpowering pitcher, but he's unlikely to make much noise for you on FantasyScore tonight.

Padres | Derek Norris receiving a breather

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:34:34 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 1. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just two hits in 18 at-bats this year, making him an unattractive FantasyScore play this evening.

Padres | Derek Norris moved to second in lineup

Sun, 31 May 2015 15:21:35 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris was moved to the second spot in the lineup Sunday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting .258 (8-for-31) with one home run and seven RBIs, so the Padres may be trying to put a little pop up in their lineup.
