Future Watch: Jameson Fisher Rookie Baseball Cards, White Sox

Jameson Fisher was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the fourth round of the MLB Amateur Draft. Originally a catcher he was converted to the outfield and since then he’s been on more than a few people’s radar.

In 2016, the Louisiana native went straight to rookie ball after a nice collegiate career where he led all NCAA hitters with a .424 batting average, 11 homers and 66 RBI for Southeastern Louisiana University. There he played for the Great Falls Voyagers. There he had 13 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers and 25 RBI with a .342 average. He was off and running.

In 2017, he started out in A-ball and ended up in advanced A-ball. For those two teams combined he had 458 at-bats with 30 doubles, 6 triples, 10 home runs, and 68 RBI.

In 2018, he landed with the Birmingham Barons in Double-A. In his first 315 at-bats, he had six homers and 24 RBI with 11 doubles and two triples. His average dropped to .216.

According to his MLB.com draft profile:

Some scouts rated Fisher as the best pure hitter in the 2016 college crop. He has a smooth left-handed swing, recognizes pitches easily and manages the strike zone well. Though he employs a line-drive, all-fields approach, his hitting ability, bat speed, and strength could translate into average power. ETA 2019.

Here he is with an extra-base hit:

He has a 2017 Bowman Baseball Chrome Prospects Autographs card and that’s a good way to get him into your collection.

Considering he missed all of 2015 with a torn labrum, and that’s what ended his catching career, he’s adjusted well. He’s 24, so he still has a chance to get to the “show” in plenty of time to be called a late bloomer. This guy has the talent and the determination so keep an eye on him.
