Padres | Melvin Upton not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:47:03 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito Sunday, July 24. OF Alex Dickerson will play left field and bat fifth. In addition, C Derek Norris is back in the lineup, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently, although it does not appear as though a deal is imminent. Dickerson is batting .227 with two home runs and 10 RBI through 66 at-bats but daily fantasy owners should be able to find better options this afternoon.

Padres | Wil Myers back after a day off

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:27:39 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is in the starting lineup batting second against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer on Saturday, July 23. OF Travis Jankowski is also back after a rest day and will hit leadoff. However, C Derek Norris will sit in favor of C Christian Bethancourt, who will fill in behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Myers sat out Friday after getting hit by a pitch for the first time all season Thursday, but the absence was not believed to be injury-related and this proves it. A bigger concern for fantasy owners is his 2-for-22 slump - something that doesn't figure to get much better with Scherzer on the mound, although he is 4-for-6 lifetime against the right-hander. Myers has been too good this season to bench, so non-DFS owners should keep starting him in hopes he can get back on track soon.

Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez out

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:16:58 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 20. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting seventh, while 2B Alexi Amarista is at the 6 and is batting eighth against Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has surprising pop with five home runs and 14 RBI as SD's backup catcher in 105 at-bats, but he's still more of a low-end sleeper pick to save salary cap space in DFS. Amarista barely moves the needle in even the deepest of fantasy leagues and is a long shot to make noise hitting low in the batting order.

Padres | Derek Norris sitting out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:35:16 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Sunday, July 17. C Christian Bethancourt will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt is hitting .333 in limited playing time this month and should be considered in two-catcher leagues.

Padres | Derek Norris leading off

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 16:00:54 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is batting first in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 15. OF Travis Jankowski is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has been a bit inconsistent at the plate this month and is hitting .222 during that span. He should still be a decent option in two-catcher leagues. Jankowski has had some success at the plate over the last few weeks, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Padres | Derek Norris struggles in return

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:03:52 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (quadriceps) returned to the lineup Saturday, July 9, against the Los Angeles Dodgers after leaving with a right quadriceps contusion. "He regenerates quickly," manager Andy Green said. "He took a shot. It's a testament to how tough he is."

Fantasy Tip: Norris might be tough, but he was hitless in three at-bats to drop his average to .210. He can only be trusted in the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues as a No. 2 receiver.

Padres | Derek Norris injures quad

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 00:24:30 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (quad) was removed from the game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 8, after a collision with 2B Chase Utley.

Fantasy Tip: This is just the latest in a series of dings for Norris. The injury doesn't appear to be serious, but it's certainly possible the Padres will let him rest up with the All-Star break on tap. Even when healthy, Norris resonates exclusively in NL-only and two-catcher setups.

Padres | Derek Norris back in action

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:04:57 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (elbow) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has picked it up at the plate of late and now is hitting .212 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI on the year. He's a perfect second backstop in two-catcher formats and is a decent DFS pick against Bradley this evening.

Padres | Derek Norris OK

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:05:12 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris (elbow) is OK after being hit in the left elbow by a bat Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Norris is out of the lineup tonight, so adjust your lineups accordingly. It looks like he could return as soon as Wednesday, though. The bearded backstop has turned things on in the last month and now stands with a .212/.269/.402 slash line, 11 home runs and 31 RBI. He's on pace to shatter his career high of 14 home runs and should reach 20 by season's end. That makes Norris a viable fantasy starter at catcher in most formats.

Padres | Melvin Upton, Derek Norris out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:57:18 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. and C Derek Norris (elbow) are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and is leading off, while C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley.

Fantasy Tip: Norris left the game with an elbow injury last night, so he might be forced to miss more time. Stay tuned for updates. Jankowski has speed and Bethancourt can supply power, but both are low-end daily considerations against Arizona.
