Dodgers’ Prospect Braydon Fisher Pitching Well for High-A Great Lakes

Right-handed pitcher Braydon Fisher joined the High-A Great Lakes Loons in April after a brief stint with Low-A Rancho Cucamonga. For Fisher, this season is his first in High-A and he’s enjoying everything about it so far.

“I like Great Lakes a lot because it’s more of a stadium than anything I’ve played in,” said Fisher. “The facilities are nice and everything I need throughout the day is right there in the clubhouse.”

And Fisher is pitching well for his new team, too. In his 12.2 innings pitched for the Loons, the righty is maintaining a WHIP of 1.03, and opposing hitters are only managing a stingy .098 average against him.

Finding success on the mound with his repertoire, Fisher features four pitches, but mainly only uses three of them. Fisher usually sticks with a four-seam fastball, a slider, and a curveball on the mound, but he will occasionally mix in a splitter to keep hitters guessing.

“I usually just use the fastball as a starting point for the off-speed,” explained Fisher. “I try and throw it everywhere in the zone. It really just depends on the hitter’s strengths and weaknesses.”

Fisher has noticed a little more maturity out of the hitters he has faced in High-A.

“They have better approaches than the Low-A guys,” Fisher said of the High-A hitters. “They know the zone a little better and hit their pitch whenever they’re given the chance.”

But other than that, Fisher hasn’t noticed a big difference between Low-A and High-A.

“The jump from Low-A to High-A isn’t a huge one in my opinion,” stated Fisher. “Hitters have better approaches and the quality of baseball jumps a little bit, but overall, it’s pretty similar.”

Be sure to follow Braydon Fisher as he continues to enjoy his time with High-A Great Lakes while being tough on opposing hitters.
