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, 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.

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.

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.

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.
