A torn labrum in his throwing shoulder cost Fisher a full season, but the 22-year-old redshirt junior this year ranks among the nation's leaders in batting average while walking almost twice as often as he strikes out. He has a smooth lefthanded stroke and demonstrates occasional pull power, although he's best at lining doubles to the gaps. Scouts see him as an advanced hitter with an above-average hit tool and future average power potential. Fisher has always hit--he earned third-team Baseball America High School All-America honors in 2012 and was a 24th-round pick of the Cubs. An everyday catcher as a sophomore, Fisher transitioned to first base this year. He still has potential to catch at least part-time as he's an adequate receiver albeit one whose throwing arm is average at best and lacks accuracy. Fisher runs well enough (40-45 speed on the 20-to-80 scouting scale) to give left field a try. He could go as quickly as the second round to a team looking to find a player with tools who will sign for below slot.
