Derek Norris: Released by Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris was released by the Nationals on Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

After signing a one-year contract in November, the 28-year-old leaves Washington without even making it to Opening Day. With Jose Lobaton set to be the backup to Matt Wieters, there simply was no space in the lineup for Norris, who is coming off a miserable 2016 campaign in which he hit .186 over 125 games for the Padres. He'll look to latch on elsewhere before the season begins, but his $3.5 million salary may discourage suitors.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris has been placed on waivers by Washington, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports Network reports.

Norris had been in line to start as Washington's catcher until the team signed Matt Wieters, who is expected to start. With Jose Lobaton and Pedro Severino around, the Nationals didn't feel a need to keep Norris around. If he goes unclaimed, which is likely due to Norris' $4.2 million price tag, we expect the Nationals to release him.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Continues hot hitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, his second of the spring, in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

He's rumored to be back on the trade block after the Nats signed Matt Wieters, and Norris is doing everything he can this spring to increase his trade value, hitting .455 (5-for-11) with a 1.455 OPS through early action. He's coming off the worst season of his career, but the 28-year-old can still supply power at a thin fantasy position if he winds up in the right situation before Opening Day.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Could be released soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris might be released soon by the Nationals because it's unlikely another team will take on his $4 million salary in a trade, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Washington signed Matt Wieters recently, and Jose Lobaton looks like the backup. The Nats also have a decent prospect in Pedro Severino and Spencer Kieboom, if he clears waivers after being designated for assignment Thursday. Washington would have to eat around $700,000 if it cuts him, but it makes sense to do so after the Nats brought Wieters aboard. Finding a new club, of course, could regenerate some semblance of fantasy value for Norris, who toiled with a .186 batting average last year but has displayed decent pop throughout his five-year career.

Nationals' Derek Norris: Homers Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Norris went 1-for-2 with a solo home run off Astros closer Ken Giles during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game.

He's essentially auditioning for a role on another team at this point, as the Matt Wieters signing makes him expendable, but at least Norris isn't letting his job security issues affect him at the plate. He'll need more than one early spring homer to shake off the stink of last year's .583 OPS, however.
