Padres | Derek Norris takes a seat

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:13:11 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has some pop with four home runs in 86 at-bats. Even in a nice matchup, though, he doesn't have a ton of appeal to fantasy owners and is more of a low-end catching pick in DFS.

Padres | Derek Norris sitting vs. Baltimore

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:47:42 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Norris is a fringe starter in the majority of seasonal leagues with 29 runs, nine home runs and 22 RBI for the season. Bethancourt is hot recently with an active 5-for-14 stretch at the dish, so he checks out as a low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Padres | Three San Diego regulars resting

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:57:16 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay, C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, C Christian Bethancourt is catching and batting seventh and 2B Alexi Amarista is at the 6 and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski has the favorable lineup spot setting the table, but he's a light hitter and hasn't translated his speed to much success on the base paths (five steals in eight attempts). He's still more of a low-end outfield pick as a deep sleeper. Bethancourt has some power but remains inconsistent offensively, and Amarista carries very little fantasy allure because of limited power and speed.

Padres | Derek Norris on the bench

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:31:49 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, June 14. C Christian Bethancourt will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt is hitting .246 with four home runs and 11 RBI in limited playing time this season. He can be a starting option in NL-only and two-catcher leagues, but owners in most mixed leagues should avoid him.

Padres | Derek Norris, Brett Wallace sitting

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:32:01 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and 1B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran. 2B Alexi Amarista draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethacourt does have some pop (four home runs) but is a low-end boom-or-bust DFS option. Amarista has zero power and very little speed, so he's a desperation daily selection.

Padres | Derek Norris takes a seat

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:43:12 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt can get a hold of one every now and then (four homers in 60 at-bats), but he remains a low-end daily pick, and he doesn't have a ton of upside hitting seventh in the Friars order.

Padres | Matt Kemp receives a breather

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:07:33 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. C Christian Bethancourt is starting in right field and is hitting fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. C Derek Norris also moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp's 10 homers and 29 RBI look nice, but he's in need of a blow and is hitting .123 (7-for-57) with 15 strikeouts since May 5. He should pull out of this mini-slump eventually, so keep him in your seasonal starting lineups when he's back in there. Both Norris and Bethancourt aren't much to talk about offensively and are low-end daily picks. Norris is the better bet with a nice lineup positioning this evening.

Padres | Derek Norris taking a breather

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:13:53 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. C Christian Bethancourt takes the catching duties and is batting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has showed some pop recently but is still hitting only .250 on the year and remains on the lower end of cheap catching options in daily games.

Padres | Derek Norris won't be out long

Fri, 13 May 2016 16:07:02 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (hand) isn't expected to miss more than a "couple" of games, according to manager Andy Green. Norris might be available to pinch hit Friday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Norris was likely already sent to the waiver wire by most owners in mixed leagues. The catcher has a disappointing slash line of .187/.237/.290 with two home runs and four RBI in 31 games. The way things are going, he's become a low-end second backstop in two-catcher and NL-only leagues. Christian Bethancourt is the backup but doesn't carry much value himself.
