|(8/14/15) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso wasn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game, after starting 78 games this year, including five of the last six.

Padres' Derek Norris crushes grand slam in win on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Derek Norris had a fantastic day at the plate for the Padres on Thursday. Norris, who was the starting first baseman on Thursday, went 5 for 5, including a seventh-inning grand slam.
Norris' slam cut the Mets' lead to 7-5, and the Padres would go on to win 8-7. It was the third grand slam of Norris' career, and his second this year.
Norris, who now has 12 homers on the year, had been struggling at the plate coming into Thursday's game. Over his previous 10 games, he was batting just .111 (4 for 36) with no home runs and zero RBI.
|2014 Summary: For much of his career, Derek Norris was a power-hitting catcher who was a bit challenged in the batting average department. Over the last two seasons with the Athletics, Norris has been flipping the script, and in 2014, his .270 batting average was well above the .244 major league mark for all catchers. Norris struck out and popped out less often, but he also became more of a ground ball hitter, so he was limited to 10 home runs in 385 at-bats. That was still good enough to make Norris the 13th-ranked catcher in Fantasy value. Norris' three-year run in Oakland came to end this offseason when the A's dealt him to the Padres.
Playing time status: Norris never truly got a typical starting catcher's workload with the A's, as he had to share playing time with the likes of John Jaso, Stephen Vogt and Kurt Suzuki. Now he will be the uncontested starter with the Padres.
2015 Outlook: Norris' transformation as a hitter has helped him in points leagues, where his growing walk-to-strikeout ratio makes him a borderline No. 1 catcher. However, in Rotisserie leagues, his downward-trending home run power makes him a less attractive option. He should be considered a No. 2 catcher in those formats.
