Steve Cishek settles down after early jam
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) A ninth-inning rally put Steve Cishek in position to notch his 35th save of the season, but initially, it looked like he might not take advantage of the opportunity. In Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Cishek started off the bottom of the ninth with a walk to Freddy Galvis and a single to Cody Asche, but he followed up with three straight strikeouts to seal the Marlins' 5-4 victory over the Phillies.
The scoreless inning lowered Cishek's ERA to 3.38.
|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.
