Oakland Athletics C Derek Norris, who will enter the season in a platoon with either Cs John Jaso or Stephen Vogt, added a small leg kick to help place his landing foot correctly in the offseason. "When I found it, I stuck with it," Norris said. "So this was one of my easier offseasons, I didn't have to put a lot of thought into it -- I just repeated it. I'm at the point I can swing without thinking, and that was the goal. Now I have a more consistent swing path and I can shoot the ball to all fields." Norris is also working to iron out "kinks in my mechanics" on the defensive side to help him throw out more base runners.
