Padres C Derek Norris hits two doubles in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(12:23 am ET) Padres catcher Derek Norris recorded three hits in five at-bats during Monday night's 14-3 win over the Rockies.
Norris hit two doubles and a single in the game. He now has five doubles so far this season. Norris notched one RBI and struck out once. He's now batting a slash line of .314/.340/.412.
Padres' Justin Upton (quad) out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Padres left fielder Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs due to a quad strain.
It'll be the first game this season Upton hasn't started for the Padres. He's hit .326/.373/.630 with three home runs and eight RBI in 46 at-bats. He felt better after receiving postgame treatment, MLB.com reports, and the injury doesn't appear to be serious.
"We’re optimistic about it," manager Bud Black said before Sunday's game, per U-T San Diego. "We will watch it, treat it and hopefully it will be all right (Monday). And if not, hopefully Tuesday. We’re not going to push this. When you’re talking muscle strains, you never really know."
With Upton sidelined, Will Venable will draw the start in left field, while catcher Derek Norris will shift to the cleanup spot after not starting Saturday.
The Padres are underdogs (+120) in Chicago Sunday.
Derek Norris out of Padres lineup on Saturday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Padres catcher Derek Norris is not in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game at the Cubs.
Norris is replaced in the lineup by Wil Nieves, who will catch and bat eighth in his second game of the 2015 season.
Padres' Wil Myers, Derek Norris back in lineup
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) The Padres will have outfielder Wil Myers and catcher Derek Norris are back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to team announcer Bob Scanlan.
Both players had the day off against the Giants, though Myers did see a pinch-hitting appearance during Sunday's 6-4 loss. This move puts Will Venable and Wil Nieves into a bench role for Monday's game.
Padres to start Wil Nieves at catcher Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Padres manager Bud Black has decided to start Wil Nieves at catcher Sunday against the Giants to give Derek Norris the day off, reports MLB.com.
It will be Nieves' first start of the season and first in a Padre uniform since 2002. He hit .254 with one home run and seven RBI in 122 at-bats in 2014 with the Phillies.
|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.
