Padres | Derek Norris hitting second

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:32:11 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is hitting second in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: While it's a positive that Norris ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting higher up in the lineup tonight, the fact that he's facing tough lefty Bumgarner likely cancels that out. Norris profiles as a bit of a weak play tonight, even though he's had a great 2015 season up to this point.

Padres | Derek Norris hitting second

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:17:33 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris will bat second in the order Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies. The right-handed hitting Norris will face Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is crushing lefties to the tune of a .611 batting average through 18 plate appearances this season. That number may be sure to regress, but Norris needs to be in lineups whenever the Padres face a southpaw. The premium spot in the batting order only helps Norris' case on FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris pounding southpaws

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:54:03 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is 11-for-18 (.611 batting average) against left-handed pitchers with seven runs and four RBI so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: This is nothing new for Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), as he has a career .306/.383/.504 slash line against lefties. At his current rate, Norris is a near must-start backstop with a southpaw on the hill for FantasyScore players.

Padres | Derek Norris out of lineup

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:23:30 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. C Wil Nieves is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Nieves ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can save you heaps of loot at FantasyScore today, but he's not a strong option against Keuchel, who is off to a great start in 2015. Play it safe at catcher and look elsewhere.

Padres | Derek Norris taking day off

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:18:57 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is receiving the day off Thursday, April 23. C Wil Nieves is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.

Fantasy Tip: Nieves ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a dice roll at FantasyScore as a low-end catching option Thursday, even at hitter-friendly Coors Field. His one hit in seven at-bats this year was a grand slam.

Padres | Derek Norris resting vs. Giants

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 06:00:05 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris will receive the day off against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, April 12. C Wil Nieves will start behind the plate Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris in daily contests Sunday. He has had a nice start to the season, though, going 8-for-25 with four runs and three RBI. Nieves ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, and you should likely aim higher.

Padres | Derek Norris looking to find groove

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:18:44 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris hit his first home run of the spring Wednesday, March 25, and said, "It's been a lot better the last few days," Thursday, March 26. He went 3-for-32 with 13 strikeouts before the home run, and is looking to improve his production while juggling his duties controlling a new pitching staff. "That could play a little into it for the slower start," Norris said. "My (main) priority is getting to know these guys. Everyone would love to go 4-for-4 every day, but in my case, controlling the pitching staff and getting to know these guys is priority No. 1. Hopefully we can mesh the offense and defense."

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is a suitable No. 2 backstop in two-catcher formats or low-end option in deep mixed leagues. There is power upside, and at 26, there is still room for growth as Norris enters his offensive prime. However, Norris is a career .208 hitter against right-handed pitching and his new ballpark is on the pitcher-friendly extreme of the spectrum. He makes an excellent FantasyScore play against left-handed pitchers, though, with a career .292/.374/.486 slash line.
