Padres | Derek Norris not playing

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 12:10:22 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. C Austin Hedges is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has fallen on hard times of late, going just 13-for-79 (.165) with five home runs and nine RBI in June to drop his average under .250. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .114 (4-for-35) in limited duty. He's not one to click on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 15:10:23 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just one hit since May 10, and he shouldn't be getting any FantasyScore consideration.

Padres | Austin Hedges hits first homer

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:19:31 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges hit his first career home run Tuesday, June 16, against the Oakland Athletics. The solo homer in the third inning was his only hit in three at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900; or 3.8% of cap) is still hitting just .107 on the season, so it will take quite a few more performances like this before he can be trusted in FantasyScore.

Padres | Derek Norris not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:28:03 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Oakland Athletics. C Austin Hedges is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is likely getting a night off because of his weak batting average (.211) in the past week. His splits against left-handed pitching like Scott Kazmir and his average at home are actually pretty good. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) carries no fantasy value.

Padres | Derek Norris not in lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:21:54 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 16. Austin Hedges is starting in his place and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure Norris isn't in your FantasyScore DFS lineup. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could be a desperation play against Oakland LHP Scott Kazmir, but it's risky, as he's not typically an offensive threat.

Padres | No Derek Norris vs. Atlanta

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:20:13 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. C Austin Hedges receives the start and will hit eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a better defensive catcher than he is with the stick at the major league level right now, and he has just two hits in 21 at-bats (.091) so far. He's not facing an overpowering pitcher, but he's unlikely to make much noise for you on FantasyScore tonight.

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:34:34 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 1. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just two hits in 18 at-bats this year, making him an unattractive FantasyScore play this evening.

Padres | Austin Hedges starting against Angels

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:57:52 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has only received 16 plate appearances this season, so he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Sat, 23 May 2015 16:00:48 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris has the day off Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) doesn't require much consideration on FantasyScore due to his position in the order. Hedges has just two major league hits this season, and he is yet to draw a walk.

Padres | Derek Norris with night off

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:07:32 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is out of the lineup Saturday, May 16, in favor of C Austin Hedges.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 2-for-10 with a couple of RBI in his first taste of the majors. He draws Max Scherzer today, so no thanks on FantasyScore.
