Astros reassign five players to minor-league camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/16/14) The Astros reassigned five players to minor-league camp Sunday, including relievers Jose Cisnero and Chia-Jen Lo. The three other players demoted were Collin McHugh, Rudy Owens and Tyler Heineman.
Astros demote struggling Jose Cisnero to minors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/13) The Astros optioned reliever Jose Cisnero to Triple-A Oklahoma City Wednesday. The right-handed reliever has been mired in a slump, posting a 10.80 ERA and 2.70 WHIP in his last 12 outings.
Astros to go closer-by-committee
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/30/13) The Houston Astros will go to a closer-by-committee approach to the ninth inning after trading Jose Veras to the Tigers, MLB.com reports Tuesday. Houston plays at Baltimore beginning Tuesday night. 

Jose Cisnero, Travis Blackley and Chia-Jen Lo could all be options to get the ball for manager Bo Porter in the ninth. 

Looking at the Astros' closer candidates
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/29/13) The Astros have yet to name a closer to replace Jose Veras, who they traded to the Tigers Monday, and if I had to guess, I'd say they go with a committee to start out. Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields were both mentioned as candidates this spring, and you have to figure Wesley Wright will factor against lefties.

But inevitably, every committee leads to one guy stepping up and claiming the role for himself, and the obvious candidate to do that here is Jose Cisnero. He's a hard-thrower with strikeout-per-inning stuff, and though his 3.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP don't seem like anything special, both are skewed by a particularly ugly outing on May 11 in which he gave up eight hits and six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. Remove it from the equation, and he has a 2.33 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the year.

Still not impressed? Yeah, OK. Well, everyone left in the Astros bullpen has a high ERA and WHIP, which is probably the takeaway here. Though Cisnero is the reliever to target in deep leagues where saves are nowhere to be found on the waiver wire, you probably shouldn't bother with him outside of those leagues.

Who would be next up to close for Houston?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/13) Our Jon Heyman is reporting Astros closer Jose Veras is drawing considerable trade interest and appears likely to be dealt by the July 31 trade deadline. If that happens, then who closes for Houston?

That's a great question given the state of the team's bullpen. Astros' relievers have combined for the worst bullpen ERA (5.04) in the majors. In fact, Veras has the lowest ERA (3.12) among Houston's relievers. 

In the event of a Veras' trade, the top internal candidates to take over as the team's closer are Jose Cisnero, Wesley Wright, Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields

If you asked me this question in late June, then Cisnero would have been the easy choice. He was a rising arm in Houston's bullpen and gaining the trust of the coaching staff. However, he has struggled lately. He's walked 12 batters in his last 11 2/3 innings and has a 9.95 ERA in his last seven outings.

Fields could be a future MLB closer, but he has a 6.61 ERA. Wright could be more valuable as a lefty specialist and setup man. Also, Wright's name has come up in trade rumors, so he might be on the move as well. Ambriz is second on the team with two saves and has 13 holds, but also has a 5.66 ERA and 1.77 WHIP.

If Houston manager Bo Porter loses Veras, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if he chose a closer-by-committe approach. But if I had to stash one player in Fantasy, then I'd think I'd make it Cisnero since he does have plenty of upside.
