Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said it won't be a strict platoon between Cs Derek Norris and John Jaso. Norris could also play against right-handed pitchers, and Melvin said he will ride the hot hand.
Fantasy Tip: This news makes Norris a tad more valuable in AL-only and two-catcher leagues. Jaso should be your first target of the tandem, though.

Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales will be penciled into the middle of the lineup for the team next season. "We have been focused on adding offense this offseason, and feel that Kendrys will be a middle-of-the-order bat for us," general manager Jack Zduriencik said. "He's a switch-hitter with power who has played - and hit - in the AL West. He's familiar with the teams and parks and is a proven run-producer." Morales will likely compete with 1B Justin Smoak at first base or serve as the team's designated hitter. Cs Jesus Montero and John Jaso could split time at DH, too. SPs Blake Beavan, Erasmo Ramirez, Danny Hultzen, James Paxton, Taijuan Walker and Brendan Maurer will be given a shot in spring training to crack a starting rotation that now includes only SPs Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma.
