I have seen that he is doing well in AAA, and didn't do too bad in AA. Can anyone give me a scouting report on him?

Here is a scouting report from last year:


Fisher features a 91-93 mph two seam fastball with heavy sink, a cut fastball, a hard slider, and a changeup. However, his best pitch is his sinking fastball, as it generates a lot of groundballs, which is his biggest asset.

Sounds like someone that we could use.

We could, but he is not on the 40 man roster at this point. He cannot be a September callup this year. He has been impressive enough at AAA that I expect the Reds will place him on the 40 man roster in the off-season.

Here is a scouting report from last year:

Still seems fairly accurate. He relies more on the FB and cutter than he did as a starter, but you have to love a guy getting over 60% ground balls and striking out over 20% of the batters he sees.

The Arizona Fall League rosters were announced. The Reds are sending right-hander Carlos Fisher to play for the Peoria Javelinas.

A good sign for next year.
