Derek Norris (SD) – Norris typically garners a strong lineup spot against LHP and deservedly so. Since 2012, Norris has compiled a .364 wOBA and .181 ISO against LHP. Adam Morgan has struggled with righties at the big league level (.383 wOBA, 1.86 HR/9) and projection systems expected this. He can’t miss bats and he’s got a rest of season projected ERA of 5.45 from ZiPS. Norris cracks our Top 30 players overall and is one of the stronger values at the catcher position.
