Padres | Derek Norris sitting out vs. Mets

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:24:37 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. His seasonal value has fallen off a cliff, too, as he sports a .163/.221/.319 slash line over 172 plate appearances since the beginning of June. Though, he does have seven of his 11 home runs this season during the span. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday, but you should likely aim higher.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out vs. Cards

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Austin Hedges draws into the lineup behind the plate with C Derek Norris playing first base. Norris is batting second, and Hedges is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having one of the best runs of his career and sports a respectable .310/.396/.402 slash line this season. Just don't count on much help in the home run or stolen base columns. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .305 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere. Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), on the other hand, has a career .374 wOBA and .857 OPS against southpaws and is an excellent option for daily players Thursday.

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 | 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.
