Scouts showing concern over Marlins' Steve Cishek's velocity
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) Scouts have expressed some concern over Marlins closer Steve Cishek's fastball, clocked at 88-90 mph this week, which is a low for him, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Friday.
Cishek, who notched 34 saves in 2013 and 39 in 2014, is off to a slow start after the first month of the season. He has converted two of four save opportunities, with a 9.82 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB ratio over 7 1/3 innings pitched in April.

|(4/28/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek pitched a scoreless ninth to save Tuesday's win over the Mets.
Cishek allowed one walk and struck out one to earn his second save of the year. He lowered his ERA to 9.82.
Marlins closer Steve Cishek blows save, picks up loss Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek had a game to forget in Miami's 3-1 loss to the Mets Monday. Cishek came on in the ninth with a 1-0 lead over the Mets, who were unable to put anything together offensively through eight innings.
Cishek allowed a lead off double to Juan Lagares before walking Lucas Duda. After forcing a pop out, Cishek gave up the big one, a three-run home run to Daniel Murphy to give New York a 3-1 lead and the eventual win.
Cishek, now 0-1 with one save, ballooned his ERA to 11.37 on the season.
Marlins' Steve Cishek strikes out two in nonsave situation Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek racked up two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 6-2 win over the Nationals Sunday.
Cishek was rocked in his first outing of the season and allowed one run in his subsequent appearance but has since pitched four perfect innings while recording three strikeouts. However, he owns just one save this season while posting a 8.44 ERA and 4:2 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.
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.
|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.
