Padres | Derek Norris sitting against Nats

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:05:56 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Thursday.

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.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out vs. lefty

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:15:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Derek Norris moves to first base, while C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is batting seventh.

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.

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:16:42 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .250 (9-for-36) since the All-Star break with a home runs and five RBIs. If you need cap relief in FantasyScore, he's worthy of consideration for your lineup Sunday.

Padres | No Derek Norris against Atlanta

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:33:29 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Austin Hedges is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is strictly a defensive-minded catcher that is hitting just .183 (15-for-82) with two home runs and eight RBI. Look elsewhere for your daily catching option.

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.

Padres | Derek Norris sitting out

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.

Padres | Derek Norris out vs. Brewers

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:55:27 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 5. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been at his best of late and currently sports a 7-for-19 run over his past seven games with a .961 OPS. Still, he is nothing more than a flier source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Padres | Austin Hedges tied to Tyson Ross?

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:37:14 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges will catch SP Tyson Ross Monday, Aug. 3, making it Ross' fifth consecutive start with Hedges behind the plate. Hedges is catching Ross for the seventh time in nine starts.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has significantly less fantasy value than Derek Norris ( $3,600, 7.2% of cap) but if it provides a boost to Ross' value ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) FantasyScore owners can accept it.
