Padres | Derek Norris receiving a breather

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:36:20 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has only 18 hits in 99 at-bats this year (.182 average) with two home runs and 10 RBI. He's a very weak option on FantasyScore, especially against an elite pitcher like Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has really struggled this season, and he has been a major disappointment for fantasy owners. He carried a .233 batting average with a respectable 11 home runs and 45 RBI into the All-Star break, but he has emerged with just two home runs and nine RBI since. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) owns a .197/.240/.283 slash line and is nothing more than a desperation play at FantasyScore Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) isn't a bad FantasyScore click against the lefty tonight. He's hitting .289 (28-for-97) against southpaws this season. You should avoid Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), who has really struggled at the plate all season in his rookie year.

Padres | Derek Norris playing first base

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 12:52:53 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris will play first base and bat second against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Sunday, Aug. 16. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will likely see a good chunk of playing time at first base while Yonder Alonso (head) is sidelined. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .263 this month but should only be considered as a source of FantasyScore cap relief.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out against southpaw

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:53:18 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Yohan Flande Friday, Aug. 14. C Derek Norris moves to first base and is hitting second, while C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and hit seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been heating up of late after a brutal prolonged slump, and he makes for a solid under-the-radar pick on FantasyScore at Coors Field. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) typically should be ignored, but at Coors Field against a very mediocre pitcher might be the time to click him as a deep sleeper and also save yourself tons of loot at the same time.

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 15:39:17 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11. C Austin Hedges is behind the plate for the second straight night and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is more known for his glove than his bat, making him a low-end catching option on FantasyScore tonight. You can do better.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out vs. southpaw

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 14:21:11 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP David Holmberg Monday, Aug. 10. C Derek Norris moves to first base and is hitting second, while C Austin Hedges starts behind the plate and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just 12 hits in 68 at-bats this year (.176 average) and isn't really known for his talents with the bat. Even though he's facing a pitcher that won't intimidate opponents, he's a low-end FantasyScore play tonight.
