    It is a strong year for high school talent in Virginia, but it's mostly on the mound, leaving Fisher as the top position player. His carrying tool is a plus arm that is one of the stronger arms in the class. He shows athleticism behind the plate with his receiving and blocking and has the attributes to remain at the position. His arm does not always play at plus in game action because he can push the ball from a lower arm slot, causing his throws to tail. His defense is ahead of his bat, and most scouts project him as a below-average hitter with average power. Fisher has a patient approach, some quickness to his stroke and feel for the bat, but he faces questions about the quality of his contact. The 6-foot, 206-pounder is naturally strong but offers almost no physical projection. He is a well below-average runner and is considered a tough sign because of his Virginia commitment.
