2011 Texas Rangers Draft Picks: Rangers Select Derek Fisher In Sixth Round

The Rangers picked Derek Fisher, a high profile talent and another physically gifted athlete, with their sixth round selection. Fisher is an offensive talent who had an outside shot at being a first round choice, so his draft slot is evidence of his price tag (some suggest that it exceeds $2 million).

Fisher saw mixed results in 2011, so teams might have been hesitant to bet heavily on his bat. His letter of intent to Virginia adds to the Rangers' challenge in signing him.
