Norris is dealing with a hip issue, and it's starting to affect his play, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Mariners stole four bases against him and Jon Lester on Sunday, and he's also having trouble blocking balls in the dirt.
Norris has been pressed into nearly everyday duty behind the plate thanks to injuries to John Jaso, Stephen Vogt and now Geovany Soto. Soto has shown improvement recently and could help in the catching duties soon, but the A's will continue to lean heavily on Norris.
