Fisher drafted by Dodgers

Former Keys standout and current Oklahoma hurler Jake Fisher was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. Fisher was taken in the 22nd round and 664th overall.

Recently named Oklahoma's No. 3 in its starting rotation, Fisher currently sports a 2.53 earned run average with a 3-2 record. Fisher, a left-hander, has logged 50 strikeouts compared to only 14 walks this season.

Fisher, who started the season in the bullpen for the Sooners, was inserted into the starting rotation after Dillon Overton was hampered by an arm injury during Big 12 Conference play.

The Sooners are currently taking on Louisiana State in Super Regional play. Oklahoma lost 2-0 on Friday night and needs to win its next two games to reach the College World Series.

Fisher was the sixth Sooner taken in the Major League Baseball draft. Fellow starter Jonathan Gray was taken third overall by the Colorado Rockies while Overton was selected 63rd by the Oakland Athletics. First baseman Matt Oberste (206th) was drafted by the New York Mets, left-handed pitcher William Waltrip (349th) went to Colorado and left-handed pitcher Ethan Carnes (644th) was selected by the New York Yankees 20 spots ahead of Fisher.
