|Derek Norris makes progress, could sit until Thursday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/1/14) Athletics catcher Derek Norris was out of the lineup yet again Tuesday against the Tigers, as he continues to deal with a back injury.
Despite missing his fourth straight start, Norris was able to take batting practice on the field for the first time since Friday, according to MLB.com. Norris might be available off the bench beginning Tuesday, after he was able to catch a bullpen session pregame as well.
Despite his progress, the report also indicates Norris might just rest through the end of the Tigers series. His return to the lineup might wait until Thursday against the Blue Jays, as a result.

Donaldson's HR in 9th rallies A's past O's, 5-4
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Josh Donaldson swiped the spotlight from Manny Machado in the biggest way he could.
|Derek Norris left Fantasy owners with a chicken-and-egg conundrum heading into 2014. He hit .337 with six homers and a 1.0111 OPS over the final three months, but during that time, he faced almost exclusively lefties, against whom he hit .320 with nine homers and a .990 OPS all season. In nearly as many at-bats against righties, he hit .149 with no homers and a .445 OPS. So was the limited exposure to left-handed pitchers responsible for the breakout, or was it just a case of an up-and-comer finding his form midseason? For now, the Athletics are assuming the former, making plans to platoon either John Jaso or Stephen Vogt with him. Norris remains the most likely of the three to claim the job outright at some point, though. He was a top prospect when the Athletics acquired him in the Gio Gonzalez trade way back in 2011, after all. He doesn't deserve mixed-league consideration in his current role, but in AL-only leagues that require the use of two catchers, he might actually be more valuable than Jaso or Vogt even though he projects to get fewer at-bats.
