As if it’s not bad enough that the Astros have a great team at the major league level, they also have a nice farm system. Fisher is a product of that system.
- Derek Fisher was drafted twice. Once in 2011 by the Rangers in the 6th round of the 2011 draft. He declined. He was drafted again by the Astros in the 1.5 round of the 2014 draft. He signed.
- Coming out of college Fishers game was his bat and its plus power; he was not great with the glove and profiled at a left fielder.
- As a pro, he has more than lived up to expectations. His bat has shown the pop scouts thought would develop, and his keen eye at the plate has resulted in plenty of walks that have kept his OBP in the minors north of .370.
- Fisher was the only minor league players to his 20 HR and steal 20 bases in both 2015 and 2016. I remember his excellent 2015 season and sent him a TTM request. I got him!
- He has been rated the Astros #13 (2014), #10 (2015) and #9 (2016) prospect.
- His defense is still not that great, and because of his power bat his average will also be in the mid to low-.250’s, but he still profiles to be a regular in the big leagues.
- In 2017 he hit .318/.384/.583 with 21 HR and 16 SB in AAA. These numbers were good enough for a call-up to the majors, where he hit .212/.307/.356 with 5 HR. Those numbers were good enough for him to make the Astros post-season roster.
- A couple minutes ago the 2017 Houston Astros won the World Series. Good for them, and him.
