Coming into the year, Cishek was the Marlins’ closer, but he was optioned to Double-A to work on his mechanics after a rough start to the season.
Prior to 2015, the 29-year-old Cishek was a solid option late in games for the Marlins, having posted a 2.33 to 3.17 ERA every year since 2011.
Cishek would be an ideal buy low target for teams in need of relief pitching. Yes, he’s had a bad year, but he’s had a lot of previous success that teams can’t overlooked. If he can bounce back and regain his previous form, Cishek could be one of the steals of the deadline, if he is in fact traded.
