Nationals' Derek Norris: Likely to be traded
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Nationals will look to trade Norris in the wake of the Matt Wieters signing, The Washington Post reports.

While there was no definitive statement from the front office regarding Norris' future in Washington, manager Dusty Baker's comments following the Wieters acquisition indicated that he was happy for Norris that it happened as early in the spring as it did, because the Nats now have plenty of time to find another club "that needs a front-line catcher." Until that happens, though, the 28-year-old's fantasy value -- already low coming off a .186/.255/.328 slash line in 2016 -- will remain in limbo.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Set to be backup catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris is now in line to be the Nationals' backup catcher after the team signed Matt Wieters to a two-year deal on Tuesday.

The Wieters signing, while an obvious upgrade, really hurts Norris' fantasy value this season, as he no longer profiles as the starter. It's possible that Washington will look to trade Norris, as Jose Lobaton and Pedro Severino would be capable of handling the backup job.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris agreed to a one-year, $4.2 million contract with the Nationals on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

He struggled in a major way with San Diego in 2016, batting .186/.255/.328 with a strikeout rate north of 30 percent. That said, Norris, who turns 28 next month, still packs a power punch and he figures to serve as the primary option behind the dish in Washington -- that keeps him plenty relevant in two-catcher leagues.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Dealt to Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris was traded to the Nationals on Friday in exchange for pitcher Pedro Avila.

Norris was once the catcher of the future for Washington, but now he'll make his return to the nation's capitol presumably to take over as the Nationals' primary catcher. The 27-year-old was once one of the better-hitting catchers in the game, although his batting average sunk below the Mendoza Line and he struck out over 30 percent of the time in 125 games behind the plate for San Diego. He still possesses some pop (14 home runs in 2016) and good patience at the plate, but it'll be tough to get back into the top tier of catchers if he continues to strike out as much as he did last season.

Padres' Derek Norris: Delivers well-rounded fantasy line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, two walks, a steal and three runs against the Rockies on Thursday.

He struck out for his only out, so Norris had himself a classic three-true-outcomes day. The 27-year-old catcher has still been absolutely atrocious this year, though, with a .182 average and no multi-hit games since way, way back on July 7. Considering how many at-bats he's gotten, there have been few hitters more damaging to a rotisserie lineup than Norris this year. But the Padres have nothing else to do but stick with him and hope he can find a way to make more contact next season.
