Cedar Crest grad Fisher to majors

Cedar Crest High School grad Derek Fisher had his minor league contract purchased by the Houston Astros. Fisher is an outfielder on the Astro’s Triple-A Fresno team. He should get a nice run of starts in right field while Josh Reddick recovers from a concussion, and the 23-year-old might be able to steal playing time from Nori Aoki if he gets off to a hot start. Fisher, a top-100 prospect according to MLB.com, was flourishing to the tune of a .335/.401/.608 batting line with 16 home runs, 45 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 42 runs scored in 60 games this season at the Triple-A level.

Fisher’s call-up to the majors last week was his first and the first by a Lebanon County resident in 70 years, and just the sixth overall by one of Lebanon’s own, in the century-long history of Major League Baseball.
