Derek Norris (C, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Displaced Tigers Fan

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

ANALYSIS: The catcher position is one that is relatively thin when it comes to offensive production. In many cases, Derek Norris is probably an upgrade over your current catcher. He's slashing .302/.405/.509 in 59 games so far this season with 8 HR and 35 RBI, a more-than-respectable state line from behind the dish. Like most catchers, he won't do anything for you on the basepaths, but that doesn't mean he can't score: Norris has crossed home 25 times in a potent Oakland offense. Some might balk at the fact that Norris occasionally sits in favor of John Jaso, but his stat line should quell any fears you have about picking him up.
