Padres' Bud Black: Derek Norris has been 'great'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Padres manager Bud Black prased the work of catcher Derek Norris on offense and defense on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

"He's been great. ... Very good on both sides, throwing out runners," Black said. "He's gotten real big hits for us. He's been doing his part."

Norris, who has thrown out a league-leading 14 would-be base-stealers, has hit .291/.329/.475 with three home runs and 25 RBI in 141 at-bats.

"He gives you a tough at-bat, he grinds it out, he fouls pitches off, he swings enough at the first pitch to make the pitcher leery of the first-pitch strike," Black said. "He gives you what you look for in a tough at-bat."

Norris is batting second for the third straight game on Thursday.

Padres' Derek Norris delivers game-winning hit vs. Cubs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres catcher Derek Norris had a two-RBI double in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Cubs, which broke a 2-all tie and eventually stood as the game-winning hit in a 4-3 victory.

Norris is batting just .254 (15 for 59) with 15 strikeouts in 16 May games. However, he has a .492 slugging percentage, one triple, two home runs, six doubles, seven runs and 14 RBI this month.

Padres C Derek Norris homers and triples, drives in five on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Padres catcher Derek Norris had himself a ballgame on Friday against the Nationals. Norris went 2 for 5 with a three-run home run, a double and five RBI, as the Padres cruised to a 8-3 victory.

The three-run bomb, Norris' third of the year, came in the first inning to give the Padres the early advantage, one they would never give back. He added his two-run triple the very next inning, both hits coming off starter Doug Fister.

"I put a couple big swings on a couple mistakes," he said, per MLB.com. "After a bit of a tough road trip for me, it was nice to get off to a good start."

Norris raised his batting average to .304, as he continues to have an impressive start with his new ballclub.

"He's had a nice [first] six weeks of the season," manager Bud Black said. "He's got that [power] in him. That was huge for us tonight."

Padres C Austin Hedges makes first MLB start on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Padres top catching prospect Austin Hedges will make his first career start in Wednesday's game against the Padres. Hedges was recalled from Triple-A to make his Major League debut on Monday, and appeared as a pinch hitter that evening. 

Hedges will now make the start for Derek Norris who is getting the day off Wednesday. The two will likely be sharing time with Hedges as the season continues. Manager Bud Black insisted that Hedges will get playing time, and Wednesday seems to be an indication of that fact.

Padres' Black on Derek Norris playing first: 'we're thinking about it'
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

With the Padres' recent call-up of prized catching prospect Austin Hedges, manager Bud Black has offered a potential solution to getting him in the lineup more often, while also playing current catcher Derek Norris. Black said Tuesday that Norris could start taking some groundballs at first base, and might see some time there this season. 

"It would just be against certain left-handed pitchers, we want to keep his bat in the lineup, like for a day game after a night game, or if he's caught consecutive games," Black said, per MLB.com. "Take the load off his feet from catching."

Norris has played just one game at first base during his career, and that was in 2013. But Black expressed confidence that Norris could handle a transition.

"It would be a gradual build-up of reps. We are working through this," Black said. "But he was an amateur third baseman. He has good hands, good feet and a good baseball mind. This will not happen quick, but we're thinking about it."
