Astros' Derek Fisher: Starts in left field Saturday
Fisher went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-6 victory over Seattle.
Fisher, who got the start in left field Saturday, has mostly been used as pinch hitter or pinch runner since making his last start Sept. 9. He entered Saturday's game hitless in his previous nine at-bats and was just 2-for-26 with 11 strikeouts going back to Aug. 18. Obviously, Fisher isn't getting many opportunities, which makes it hard for him to contribute consistently. With Jake Marisnick (thumb) done for the season, at-bats are available, but Marwin Gonzalez and Cameron Maybin are the likeliest players to fill a void in the outfield. Fisher may still earn a spot on the postseason roster because of his speed.
