Trading Card Friday: Derek Norris

Derek Norris

Besides yesterday being Valentine’s Day, it also happened to be Derek Norris’ 24th birthday.

Norris was the Nationals’ 4th round selection out of high school and posted a slash line of .210/.367/.446 with 20 home runs and 13 stolen bases his 2011 season in Harrisburg.

That off-season Norris was part of the package that Washington sent to Oakland to acqure Gio Gonzalez. The change of organizations proved to be a breakthrough as he made his MLB debut on June 21st and became part of the catching platoon for the playoff-bound A’s.
