Marlins' Steve Cishek hoping to stay strong all season
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Marlins closer Steve Cishek is hoping to remain strong all season after suffering some fatigue in 2014, according to the Miami Herald.
"This off season I really wanted to rest up," Cishek said. "Last year was a grind for me. I started off throwing a lot in the beginning to middle of the year and got into a rut, kind of ran out of gas for a second."
In order to combat that fatigue, Cishek said he wanted to ensure he had a strong offseason. "This off-season I wanted to make sure I got in the proper work to handle the workload and be able to perform well from start to finish."
The 28-year-old is coming off a season in which he posted a 3.17 ERA over 65 1/3 innings. While Cishek expressed concern about fatigue, he was actually better in the second half of the season. Cishek saw his strikeout rate jump, walk rate fall and posted a 2.33 ERA in 27 innings during the second half. He had one rough stretch in June, when he allowed nine runs over seven appearances, but was otherwise strong all season. He'll enter the year set to resume his duties as the team's closer.
Report: Marlins not looking to extend Steve Cishek
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) The representative for Marlins relief pitcher Steve Cishek broached the idea of a multiyear deal with the team, but the Marlins prefer to move year-to-year with the closer, the Miami Herald reports.
Cishek racked up 39 saves in his second full season as the team's closer in 2014 while posting a 3.17 ERA and 84:21 K:BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings. He's eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason and is scheduled to reach free agency after the 2017 season.
Steve Cishek Ks two for save No. 39
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) Marlins closer Steve Cishek struck out two and needed 13 pitches to retire the side in order to close out a 6-4 win over the Phillies Thursday afternoon. Cishek has converted 39 of 43 save chances, with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 65 1/3 innings of relief.
|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.
