|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.

|Steve Cishek closes out Mets |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) Marlins closer Steve Cishek struck out two and completed a 1-2-3 inning for the save Monday afternoon at home against the Mets. He needed 15 pitches to close out a 9-6 victory. He has converted 32 of 36 save chances, with a 3.61 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 57 1/3 innings of relief.
|The Marlins didn't have many highlights during a 100-loss season in 2013, but one of them had to be the play of closer Steve Cishek, who entered last season as a full-time closer for the first time in his young career. Initially, he seemed to struggle with the added pressure. He blew his first save situation, allowed two runs in two of his first three appearances and had a 5.25 ERA after one month. It wouldn't get much better over the next several weeks, as by June 4 the right-hander was 1-4 with a 4.50 ERA and just five saves. Yet, the Marlins stuck by Cishek, which was a move that paid huge dividends. Cishek would go on a serious tear, going 3-2 with a 1.18 ERA in his last 45 relief appearances. He also was a perfect 29 for 29 in save opportunities and struck out 53 batters in 45 2/3 innings in that span. He converted 94 percent of his save chances for the season, finishing with a 2.33 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 69 appearances. He also struck out 9.6 batters per nine innings. Fantasy owners might overlook Cishek because he closes for one of the worst teams in baseball, but he's a good source of saves in the late rounds on Draft Day.
