Jameson Fisher is finally starting to figure it out

Besides the typical excitement from first-round picks and some exciting lines from Alec Hansen, it was the strong debuts from Nick Hostetler’s third- and fourth-round picks that supposedly set the draft class apart.

But Alex Call and Jameson Fisher really haven’t distinguished themselves this season. Call hasn’t played since April 15 due to a strained muscle in his chest. Fisher has also battled a couple of injuries, which might be why he’s fared worse than one might expect from a collegiate on-base champ in low-A ball.

That said, Fisher finally might have found a groove after coming back from a disabled list stint on May 19. He’s hit .444/.519/.756 over his last 13 games, including five multi-hit games over his last seven. That’s raised his season line to .303/.390/.477, with a strikeout rate of 23 percent and falling.
