Padres | No Derek Norris against Toronto

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:10:34 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. C Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: If you can stomach the sub-.200 batting average, Norris can help in the counting stats given his 41 runs, 12 home runs and 33 RBI this season. However, he's likely best left to deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues. Bethancourt has a respectable .259/.300/.429 slash line for a backstop, but he isn't receiving enough playing time to be anything more than a low-end option in two-catcher and NL-only formats. He checks out as a contrarian flier in daily contests Wednesday, though.

Padres | SD pushing hard to trade batterymates

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:46:21 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner and C Derek Norris are among the players the team is reportedly "pushing hard" to move ahead of the trade deadline on Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: It should come as no surprise either player is available. Cashner has been on the block for some time, while Norris brings a little pop to a position that is lacking it across the league. It helps the Padres are comfortable with backup Christian Bethancourt and also have prospect Austin Hedges waiting in the wings. Hedges is tearing it up at Class AAA El Paso, batting .367 with 17 homers and 61 RBI in 47 games. Both Bethancourt and Hedges should be on fantasy rosters should Norris get dealt.

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.
