Hugh Fisher Selected by Arizona in 10th Round

Big Fish is going to need to bring some water to survive in the desert.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-NC State v Vanderbilt Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

#32 Sr. LHP Hugh “Big Fish” Fisher

2021 Stats: 0-0, 2.45 ERA, 11 IP, 0 SV, 10.64 K/9, 9.00 BB/9

Big Fish returned from Tommy John surgery for his senior year with the hopes of being the set-up man or closer in Vanderbilt’s bullpen. He throws high 90s heat from a 3⁄4 arm angle and has a lethal wipeout slider. Batting against him from the left hand side is inadvisable. How is someone with tools as loud as that likely available on Day 3, you ask? Well, he was so wild (11 BB in 11 IP on the year) that Brownie just couldn’t trust him in key situations. Still, he’s going to be chosen, as big lefties who can throw that hard and bend a slider that disgustingly do not exactly grow on trees. If a team can get him to harness it all in and control his pitches better, he’s a major league reliever. You should be happy if your team takes him, but you should also expect at least 3-4 years in the minors to try to help him locate the strike zone.

Range: Rounds 5-20.
