Drafted in the 12th round (355th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2018 (signed for $125,000)
Fisher had Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm last March and opted to return to UCSB for his senior year rather than sign with the Reds as a 27th-round pick. Fisher spent most of the season as the designated hitter before taking the field again in mid-April, initially at second base before returning to shortstop. Fisher's value is tied to his defense. He is an above-average to plus defensive shortstop with silky-smooth actions, excellent range and superb instincts. He makes difficult plays look easy and projects to stay at shortstop long-term. His arm, however, did not look back to full strength when he returned, earning 30 grades on the 20-to-80 scouting scale from evaluators. Offensively, Fisher has improved but still has a long swing and lacks strength, projecting as a bottom-of-the-order hitter, at best. Whether his arm comes all the way back and allows him to stay at shortstop will determine his future.
