Padres | Derek Norris could be moved

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 07:37:29 -0800

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is a player that the Padres have discussed with other teams in trade talks, but he likely will not be traded before the start of spring training. It appears the Padres may want to use C Austin Hedges and C Christian Bethancourt as their catchers.

Fantasy Tip: Norris likely will be the Padres starter for the time being, but owners should monitor his status during the spring. Norris posted a decent .250 batting average with 14 home runs last season and could be a solid option in two-catcher leagues and NL only leagues.

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.

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 15:31:17 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to avoid Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) on FantasyScore unless you're in desperate need of salary cap relief at the catching position. He's only hitting .168 (20-for-119) with two home runs and 10 RBI all year.

Padres | Yonder Alonso continues to sit

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.

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.

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:27:52 -0700

San Diego Pares C Derek Norris is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31. C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Norris ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday, as he boasts an uninspiring .189/.240/.274 slash line for the season.

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.
