      Austin Hedges provides Padres' lone run with solo homer in loss

      Padres catcher Austin Hedges went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. Hedges is a defense-first catcher and his numbers show that thus far. In 133 at-bats, Hedges is hitting .165 with a dreadful .214 OBP. He also has very little power, with only three homers and two doubles all season. Hedges will be a good real-life baseball player for the Padres, but will have very little fantasy value in years to come.

X-rays on Norris' right hand were negative after he was struck by a foul tip in Monday's game, forcing his early exit. Norris will sit Tuesday, but Austin Hedges was apparently already scheduled to start Tuesday before the injury to Norris. It doesn't sound like Norris is expected to miss extended time.
