Derek Norris likely next player to be traded

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve heard Derek’s name floated around in the last few weeks and now with the trade deadline looming Ken Rosenthal reports via Twitter that he’s a “near lock” to be moved. The Rangers and Astros are both teams mentioned to be interested.

SB Nation’s own Chris Cotillo says the Rangers aren’t serious yet, suggesting they might want Lucroy but may settle for Norris.

Jeff Passan chimes in saying that Lucroy and Norris are still very much on the Rangers’ radar.

Norris told the Mighty 1090 yesterday that the team’s clubhouse mood “sucks”, after the recent whirlwind of trades by GM A.J. Preller. He quickly turned positive though, speaking about the opportunities now available for other players to make their mark. Norris says he knows he is also likely to be traded and he’s trying not to let it affect his game. “You thinking about it does not change anything that’s going on.”
