Padres | Derek Norris could be moved

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 07:37:29 -0800

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is a player that the Padres have discussed with other teams in trade talks, but he likely will not be traded before the start of spring training. It appears the Padres may want to use C Austin Hedges and C Christian Bethancourt as their catchers.

Fantasy Tip: Norris likely will be the Padres starter for the time being, but owners should monitor his status during the spring. Norris posted a decent .250 batting average with 14 home runs last season and could be a solid option in two-catcher leagues and NL only leagues.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
