Marlins closer Steve Cishek retires out side for first save of season
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/24/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek recorded his first save of the season on Friday, retiring out the side in order against the Nationals.
"The first one is always the toughest I feel like," Cishek said to the Miami Herald. "[The diving stop Prado made for the first out in the ninth Friday] was an unbelievable play. I hung a slider and it kind of backed up on me. [Yunel] Escobar put a good swing on it. I turned around and saw the ball sitting on the ground after [Prado] stopped it. He picked it up and threw him out. That fires you up."
Cishek's season got off to a rocky start, allowing four runs in 1 1/3 innings (32.73 ERA). But he's now thrown three straight scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 10.38.
Marlins' Steve Cishek still waiting for first save

|(4/18/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday, but he's still looking for his first save of the year.
The Marlins have won just three games, and two have been by leads too big to give Cishek a save situation. The third was a tenth-inning walk-off win.
Cishek blew a save in his only opportunity. His ERA is currently 19.29, down from 108.00 after his first appearance and 33.75 after his second.
Marlins' Steve Cishek unable to hold late lead vs. Rays

|(4/11/15) The struggles continued for Marlins closer Steve Cishek on Friday. He was charged with a blown save after allowed one run on two hits in one inning. He struck out one.
Cishek, who registered 39 saves last season, allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Guyer, who eventually scored the game-tying run on a groundout. He lowered his ERA from 108.00 to 33.75 despite being charged with his first blown save of the season on Friday.
"I felt really good tonight, like 30 times better than I did the other night. I thought I made good pitches," Cishek said, per the Sun Sentinel. "Can't do anything about that. Hats off to Guyer. He put good wood on it, shot it down the line, legged it out and from there, they just kept battling. Scrappy inning for them. Really nothing I could do about it. I felt like I went out there with my best stuff."
Marlins' Cishek on 108.00 ERA: All that matters to me is saves
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek isn't concerned after struggling in a non-save situation Tuesday against the Braves. Cishek was charged with four runs in one-third of an inning during a 12-2 loss.
“It didn’t even matter," Cishek said, per The Palm Beach Post. "The game was out of hand. If we were winning that would be an issue. I just didn’t have my good stuff. It wasn’t a lack of focus."
Cishek has a 108.00 ERA following his disastrous outing, but he also isn't concerned about that number.
“All that matters to me is the saves number,” he said. “That means we win ballgames.”
Marlins P Steve Cishek has terrible outing in 12-2 loss to Braves
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Marlins pitcher Steve Cishek only pitched one-third of an inning on Tuesday in a 12-2 loss to the Braves. The right-hander gave up four earned runs on two hits and two walks. He finished the day with an ERA of 108.00.
|2014 Summary: Steve Cishek entered the season with a streak of 29 consecutive saves, and even after the string was cut at 33, he went on to have a successful season. Among closers, Cishek finished with the 11th-highest total of Fantasy points (he was 15th among all relief-eligible pitchers), as he closed out 39 games in 43 chances. He also notched a career-high 84 strikeouts. However, Cishek did allow line drives at a 28 percent rate, which helped to lift his ERA to a career-worst 3.17. |
Playing time status: Cishek will be the Marlins' closer for the third straight opening day, and in each previous season, he has proven to be durable.
2015 Outlook: In Cishek's first full season as a closer, he was hurt by a lack of save opportunities, and last season, he had more chances but was penalized by a relatively high ERA. Even with limited opportunities, Cishek was a top 10 closer in Rotisserie in 2013, and he could easily be one again. He's not quite elite, but Cishek can be drafted as a low-end No. 1 reliever.
