Mets Sign Pitcher Nate Fisher to Minor League Contract

The New York Mets wasted no time this offseason, as SNY contributor Jacob Resnick reported the team signed LHP Nate Fisher to a minor league contract.

Although the 25-year-old who went undrafted in 2019 has not pitched in the majors, he has two seasons in the minors under his belt. Most recently, in 2021, the lefty out of Nebraska sported a 2.89 ERA and 11.3 K/9 with the Seattle Mariners’ Triple-A team.

In two seasons in the MiLB, he has a 3.53 ERA over 79 innings, 87 strikeouts, and 18 walks.

Over his four-year career with the Huskers, he posted a 4.78 ERA and 9-9 record in 22 starts.

This signing may seem insignificant to some. But, with the future of Noah Syndergaard up in the air and the shaky starts by rotation players like David Peterson, Tylor Megill, and Rich Hill, Fisher has the potential to bring a powerful arm with the ability to throw pitches on target and limit walks.
