#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.
Prediction: Chosen on Day 3. He will sign with the team that drafts him.
Chance He Signs With The Team Who Drafts Him: 99.99%.
