Derek Norris (SD) – Norris is the chalk play at catcher once again and given the lack of opportunity cost, I don’t see much reason to look elsewhere in cash games. The affordable Norris is in a great lineup spot for a catcher (second), has an impressive 150 wRC+ against LHP for his career, faces a pitcher with poor splits (Matzek’s .362 wOBA allowed to RHBs since 2012 is highest of any SP in action today) and above all else, sees a massive park shift playing in Coors Field. He’ll likely be so highly owned that there’s merit to fading him in GPPs, but for cash games simply slotting in Norris to start your roster is a positive expected value (+EV) move over the long run.
