Cardinals trade for Marlins reliever Steve Cishek
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/24/15) The Marlins traded former closer Steve Cishek to the Cardinals, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Marlins acquired Double-A pitcher Kyle Barraclough in exchange for Cishek, according to the Miami Herald.
Cishek began the season as the Marlins closer before being removed from the role in mid-May. He was then demoted to the minors in early June as he continued to struggle.
The right-hander spent just a few weeks in the minors before being recalled in mid-June. Since his return, he has gone 1-1 with a 0.71 ERA and three holds in 13 outings. He also has 11 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings in that span.

|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|

"From all the reports we have he went down and he worked on exactly what needed to be corrected," manager Dan Jennings said, per the Miami Herald. "This team needs Steve Cishek to do what he's capable of doing."
The team is also activated Mat Latos from the disabled list, while optioning right-handers Kendry Flores and Andre Rienzo to Triple-A New Orleans, the team announced.
Marlins' Steve Cishek will work with Jeff Mathis at Double-A
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(6/2/15) Marlins reliever Steve Cishek will work on his mechanical issues with a familiar face down in Double-A Jacksonville. Catcher Jeff Mathis was sent from Triple-A New Orleans to Jacksonville over the weekend to continue his rehab assignment.
He'll likely catch Cishek until he is fully recovered from a right-hand fracture that has kept him on the disabled list since April 13. Cishek will work multiple innings will he iron things out in the minors.
"I think that will be very helpful and beneficial because Matty's caught him so much," manager Dan Jennings said, per the Miami Herald. "Matty knows what to look for and what to expect. He'll be a good sounding board for him."
Marlins option P Steve Cishek to Double-A to work on mechanics
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/1/15) The Marlins announced on Monday that they have optioned pitcher Steve Cishek to Double-A Jacksonville.
Marlins manager Dan Jennings said Cishek has some issues to work on before getting back in the majors.
"I don't think this will be a long term deal," Jennings said, via the Miami Herald. "It's about something mechanically that can be tweaked."
Cishek has appeared in 19 1/3 innings and has a 6.98 ERA. He's struggled throughout the season, having struck out only 17 batters while walking 10.
|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.
