UPDATE: GV Wire’s David Taub was prescient in this April feature on Fresno Grizzlies outfielder Derek Fisher, who scored the winning run as a pinch-runner for Brian McCann in Sunday night’s 13-12 extra-innings victory by the Houston Astros over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

As a Top 5 prospect in the Astros farm system, Derek Fisher’s time in Fresno may be short-lived. The outfielder hits for average, hits for power and has speed on the basepaths.

Recently, he spoke with GV Wire about his path from Lebanon, Penn., to Fresno and hopefully to Houston. While the 2014 first-round draft pick out of the University of Virginia has yet to see the big leagues, that could be coming very soon.

In the interview, he also talked about the art of hitting, tacos and that other Derek Fisher.
