Padres | Derek Norris avoids arbitration

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 18:39:36 -0800

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $2.925 million.

Fantasy Tip: During his first season in the National League, Norris hit .250 with 14 home runs and 62 RBIs in 147 games. He is a midrange catching option in all fantasy formats, although he could lose playing time this year due to the emergence of C Austin Hedges behind the plate and the move of OF Wil Myers to first base.

Padres | Derek Norris taking a day off

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:36:06 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. C Austin Hedges is starting and hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jorge Lopez.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hasn't hit much at all this year as the backup catcher for the Friars. He's more of a defensive-minded player, so he's a low-end catcher play on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris doubles twice, homers

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 23:35:28 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris doubled twice and hit a home run Thursday, Sept. 24, as the Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) ran his average to .249 with three extra-base hits in one of the best games of his season. Norris is hitting .266 after the All-Star break and makes a decent lower-cost option at catcher.

Padres | Derek Norris out again

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 15:31:17 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to avoid Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) on FantasyScore unless you're in desperate need of salary cap relief at the catching position. He's only hitting .168 (20-for-119) with two home runs and 10 RBI all year.

Padres | Derek Norris out vs. Arizona

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 15:42:01 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. C Austin Hedges is starting and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup against Chacin and Arizona is nice for the Padres, but Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shouldn't be part of a potential stack of Friars.

Padres | Brett Wallace playing first base

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 13:02:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace will bat fifth against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Sunday, Sept. 13. C/1B Derek Norris, who played first base Saturday, Sept. 12, will bat sixth and catch Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) merits consideration as a value play at first base today in FantasyScore. He is batting .294 at the plate this month and is 3-for-9 versus Leake in his career.

Padres | Derek Norris hitting second

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 14:57:04 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is hitting second and playing first base Saturday, Sept. 12, against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a decent .353 average in 17 at-bats against the Giants' ace, and Norris is worth the stream on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yonder Alonso continues to sit

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 10:20:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is out again against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Thursday, Sept. 10. C Derek Norris is starting at first base and hitting cleanup, while C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is attractive to daily gamers while hitting cleanup and against a lefty, who he is hitting .284 (31-for-109) against this year. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a defense-first backstop that is a weak play on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris returns against Dodgers

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:06:51 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (arm) is back in the starting lineup and is facing Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mat Latos Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hasn't been nearly as consistent against right-handers this year as he has against southpaws, but he does has 11 of his 13 long balls against righties. He'll certainly be an under-the-radar catcher on FantasyScore against a pitcher that has been shaky with his new team.
