Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

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.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: On bench again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 7, 2020 03:08 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher isn't in Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

Fisher could be the favorite for long-term playing time while Teoscar Hernandez (ribs) is sidelined, but he'll take a seat Monday. Cavan Biggio will shift to right field with Santiago Espinal entering the lineup at shortstop.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Drives in pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher went 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI on Sunday against the Red Sox.

Fisher delivered RBI knocks on two separate occasions to record his first multi-hit game of the season. With Teoscar Hernandez sidelined by a rib injury, Fisher could have an expanded chance for at-bats in the short term. Through 31 plate appearances this season, he's managed a .250/.387/.417 line, though he's still struck out 10 times.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Fisher was sidelined for three weeks with a strained left quad, but he should be available going forward. He isn't starting Wednesday against the Red Sox, but he should be available off the bench. Fisher has appeared in just six games this season, hitting .250 with two extra-base hits and five strikeouts over 12 at-bats.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Runs bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (quadriceps) ran the bases Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Fisher has been dealing with a quadriceps issue since late July. He appears to be making progress towards a return, but it's not yet clear when he'll be activated. He's expected to need at least a few more days, as he's still yet to take live at-bats.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a strained left quad.

Fisher initially tweaked his calf last week and apparently worsened the issue during his pinch-hit appearance Tuesday. He'll be eligible to return Aug. 15, though it's unclear if he'll be good to go at that point. Billy McKinney was recalled to take FIsher's place on the roster.

Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Removed with quad issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher exited Thursday's game against the Nationals with left quad tightness, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Fisher was 0-for-1 before being replaced by Joe Panik. He should be considered day-to-day, though he'll benefit from extra off days after this weekend's series against the Phillies was postponed.

July 30, 2020 05:24 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Exits vs. Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (undisclosed) exited Thursday's game against the Nationals, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

It's unclear what forced Fisher from Thursday's contest. Prior to exiting, the 26-year-old was 0-for-1. Joe Panik entered the game in his place.

July 25, 2020 08:12 AM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher is starting in left field and batting eighth in Saturday's season opener against the Rays.

Lourdes Gurriel is still nursing the left side injury he suffered in camp, so Fisher will receive the Opening Day nod. Fisher and Billy McKinney could split time in his absence, though Gurriel isn't expected to be sidelined for long.

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.

September 11, 2019 03:52 PM
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.

September 6, 2019 04:08 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Day off Friday
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.

September 3, 2019 04:20 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Fisher: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher (ankle) is back in the lineup Tuesday against Atlanta.

Fisher missed Sunday's contest with a sprained ankle and didn't start Monday, though he did appear off the bench. He'll be involved from the start Tuesday, batting sixth and playing left field.

September 2, 2019 11:08 AM
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.

September 2, 2019 02:52 AM
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.
