Right-handed pitcher Braydon Fisher came over to the Toronto Blue Jays’ organization yesterday via a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for super utility player Cavan Biggio.

“Yes, I was surprised especially at this time of the year,” Fisher said of the trade. “I figured if it was going to happen, it would happen around the trade deadline, but you never know.”

Fisher, who has pitched 19 innings so far in 2024; has 30 K’s on the season.

The righty currently uses a four-pitch mix of: a 4-seam fastball, a 2-seam fastball, a slider, and a curveball.

A big strikeout pitcher, Fisher likes to put guys away with his breaking stuff, “The thing I like best about having two breaking balls is that I have two strikeout options versus both sides of the plate,” explained Fisher. “I think it makes it a little easier to strike guys out or get weak contact.”

Splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A this season, Fisher doesn’t feel there’s a major difference between the levels.

“There’s not a ton of differences,” stated Fisher. “Obviously, the ABS and challenge system are both in place but mostly with the hitters. I just notice that they take a little bit more and really wait for their pitch in Triple-A.”

Fisher is excited for his new opportunity, “I’m looking forward to meeting new people and learning things maybe in a different way,” said Fisher. “I’ve been with the Dodgers’ my whole career, so I’m looking forward to learning new things.”
