Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Ho-hum start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher has gone 3-for-12 with a double and a 0:3 BB:K in five Grapefruit League games with the Blue Jays to date.

The Blue Jays still have one everyday role in the outfield up for grabs with manager Charlie Montoyo having already confirmed Lourdes Gurriel and Randal Grichuk as regulars, but Teoscar Hernandez probably represents the top candidate to claim that job over the likes of Fisher, Anthony Alford and Billy McKinney. The fact that Fisher has no minor-league options remaining should at least help his case for making the 26-man Opening Day roster as a reserve, but the 26-year-old may struggle to find playing time when the Jays are at full strength. The lefty-hitting Fisher is only a .172 career hitter versus right-handed pitching at the MLB level, so he wouldn't represent an appealing platoon partner for the righty-swinging Hernandez.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees.

Fisher has now alternated between the lineup and the bench for eight straight games. It's hard to argue that he deserves much more than that, as he's hit just .160/.276/.387 while striking out 36.8 percent of the time since joining the Blue Jays at the trade deadline. Billy McKinney starts in left field in his absence.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher will not start Wednesday against Boston.

Fisher hits the bench for the third time in five games. He's hit just .167 with a 38.6 percent strikeout rate since joining the Blue Jays at the deadline. Teoscar Hernandez slides to left field in his absence, with Jonathan Davis starting in center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

Fisher started the last two contests and went 2-for-6 with two walks and a double after missing the previous two games with an ankle sprain. Anthony Alford will enter the lineup in left field for Toronto.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (ankle) remains out of the lineup Monday against Atlanta.

Fisher was scratched Sunday with a sprained right ankle and will wind up missing at least one more start. His target return date remains unclear. Billy McKinney gets the start in left field Monday.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Tending to sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher's absence from the lineup for Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Astros was the result of a sprained right ankle, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

The injury is believed to be only a minor concern for the outfielder, who was available off the bench for the contest. Fisher sustained the injury in the Blue Jays' 6-4 win Saturday, when he failed to corral Yuli Gurriel's two-run double in the sixth inning.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Gets scratched Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays scratched Fisher from the lineup ahead of Sunday's game against the Astros for an undisclosed reason, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Toronto should provide an update for the reason behind Fisher's absence later Sunday, but he's likely dealing with a foot injury after he got tangled with the scoreboard in Saturday's 6-4 win, according to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet. Brandon Drury will swap in for Fisher in left field and bat eighth in the series finale.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is not starting Wednesday against Atlanta.

Fisher has shown a bit of power but not much else since joining the Blue Jays at the deadline, hitting four homers in 22 games with a .167/.262/.407 slash line. Brandon Drury will take his place in left field.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Mariners, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Billy McKinney will start in left field and hit eighth against right-hander Felix Hernandez. Fisher is just 3-for-21 with nine strikeouts over his last seven games. The left-handed-hitting outfielder is slashing .127/.225/.254 in 71 plate appearances against righties.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Notches fifth steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher went 1-for-4 with a stolen base, a run scored and a walk in Friday's 7-4 loss to the Mariners.

Fisher got aboard with a single in the first inning, then stole second and scored on a Teoscar Hernandez double to extend the Blue Jays' early lead to 2-0 at the time. The outfielder is up to five steals this year while slashing .198/.289/.386 in 105 at-bats between Toronto and Houston.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Fisher is slashing .175/.267/.475 with four home runs and a 35.6 percent strikeout rate in 16 games this month. Billy McKinney is starting in left field and hitting sixth against righty Walker Buehler in this one.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Cranks another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Friday night against the Mariners.

Fisher launched a two-run blast in the second inning to put his team in the lead, and Toronto would ultimately emerge with a 7-3 victory. The 25-year-old showed plenty of power in the minors but sits with just four homers on the season in 31 big-league games, though he's now left the yard three times in his last nine games.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Goes yard in home debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Making his first home start for the Jays since coming over from Houston in the Aaron Sanchez trade, Fisher went deep for the second straight game. The 25-year-old is hitting only .188 (3-for-16) for Toronto with a 0:7 BB:K though, and he'll need to solve his contact woes if he's going to consistently tap into the power-speed upside he flashed in the minors.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Homers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher went 1-for-4 with a a two-run home run Wednesday against the Rays.

Fisher took Colin Poche deep in the sixth inning to record his second home run of the season. He should get a chance for regular at-bats to close the season, though he immediately got dinged up upon arriving with his new team after getting hit in the face with a flyball. In his very short stint with his new club, Fisher has gone 2-for-12 with six strikeouts.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (face) is back in the lineup Monday against the Rays, Dawn Klemish of MLB.com reports.

Fisher suffered the embarrassment of losing a flyball and having it hit him in the face in his third game for his new team Saturday, forcing him to leave the game. He avoided serious injury and was able to appear off the bench the next day, however, and will be involved from the start Monday, batting eighth and playing center field.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Avoids structural damage to face
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher, who is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, was diagnosed with a facial contusion after exiting Saturday's 6-4 loss, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

In his second start with the Jays since being acquired from the Astros prior to Wednesday's trade deadline, Fisher was removed from the contest in the first inning after a flyball glanced off his glove and directly into the right side of his face. The Blue Jays sent Fisher to the hospital to undergo X-rays and evaluation for a concussion, with both tests returning negative. He's still likely dealing with some pain while sporting a significant welt on his face, but the Blue Jays view him as day-to-day and expect him to avoid a stint on the 10-day injured list.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Leaves Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher exited Saturday's game at Baltimore after being hit in the face with a flyball, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Fisher appeared to lose the ball in the sun and the ball hit him on the right side of his face during the first inning, forcing him to leave the contest. According to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca, the preliminary diagnosis for the 25-year-old is that he suffered a facial contusion. Brandon Drury entered the game in right field for the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Added to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher was added to Toronto's active roster Thursday.

Fisher will be available off the bench for Thursday's series opener against the Orioles after being acquired in a trade from Houston on Wednesday. He owns a lackluster .226/.317/.358 triple-slash in 17 big-league games this season, though he's posted strong numbers at Triple-A (.286/.401/.522).

July 31, 2019 09:16 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Traded to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher was traded from the Astros to the Blue Jays on Wednesday for a package including Aaron Sanchez and Joe Biagini, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fisher was once a fairly interesting prospect but hasn't done much with his 312 career big-league plate appearances, hitting .201/.282/.367. The Blue Jays certainly have an easier roster to break into than the Astros do, but there's no guarantee Fisher is able to carve out a significant role. Still just 25 years old and with strong numbers over parts of four seasons at the Triple-A level, Fisher still has the potential to take the next step.
