Wrist Injury Sidelines Fisher 4-6 Weeks

The Virginia baseball team has struggled a bit on offense during the first month of the season.

Those struggles may very well continue for the next few weeks.

A broken hamate bone in his right wrist will sideline junior outfielder Derek Fisher for the next four to six weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

Fisher suffered the injury during the Duke series and is scheduled to have surgery on the fracture on Monday.

A 2014 Preseason All-American, Fisher started each of the Cavaliers’ first 14 games this season in left field. He is batting .333 with four doubles and seven RBI this year and has played in 123 games while batting .300 in his career.

Prior to the season, he was ranked No. 16 in Baseball America's Top 50 Prospects for the 2014 MLB Draft list.

The Cavaliers are next in action Friday through Sunday with a three-game series against Boston College at Davenport Field.
