2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Though he didn't see back-to-back save chances until late July, Cishek took the Marlins' closer role and ran with it, converting 13-of-14 opportunities over the season's final three months. Overall, the side-arm slinging right-hander dominated to the tune of a 2.69 ERA while registering 9.6 K/9. Cishek's walk rate is a touch higher than you would like out of a ninth-inning reliever (4.1 BB/9) and it's also moving in the wrong direction (3.1 BB/9 in 2011); still, Cishek got the job done in the endgame role and with Heath Bell now out of the picture, he remains the favorite for saves in South Florida heading into 2013.

2012

Cishek had a good spring training in 2011 and never looked back, finishing the year as the Marlins closer by default. He's got a solid, but not exceptional, fastball/slider combo, and that led to a strong 9.05 K/9IP over 45 appearances in the big leagues. Unfortunately for those who grabbed him as a potential cheap keeper and sources of saves, he should settle in as one of the Marlins' primary setup men with Heath Bell in town.
