Fisher was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right knee contusion Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Fisher was hit by a pitch during a live batting practice session, and he'll miss at least 10 days as a result. With just under two weeks remaining in the regular season, it's unclear whether he'll be able to return prior to the postseason. Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move and should serve as the primary right fielder going forward.
Fisher isn't in Wednesday's lineup against the Yankees. Even with right-hander Gerrit Cole on the mound for the Yankees, Fisher will retreat to the bench Wednesday. Cavan Biggio will shift to right field with Jonathan Villar starting at second base.
Fisher is not in Sunday's lineup against the Mets. He heads to the bench with southpaw David Peterson on the hill for New York. Jonathan Davis will start in right field and bat seventh.
Fisher went 1-for-3 with a two-run blast in the Blue Jays' 7-2 loss versus the Yankees on Wednesday. Fisher represented the entirety of Toronto's offensive output for the contest. The 27-year-old has stepped into a sizable role with Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) sidelined. Worth monitoring as he resides in the Blue Jays' top-10 offense, Fisher has hit 4-of-10 with three walks in his past four games.
Fisher isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees. Fisher will sit for a second consecutive game, even after Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) was placed on the injured list Monday. Jonathan Davis will take over in right field Tuesday.
