Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek struck out five batters in two innings on Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: In between the strikeouts, he gave up one run on two hits and a walk. Cishek had nasty movement on his pitches and was able to put hitters away once he got them to two strikes. With a better team surrounding him this year, Cishek could jump into the second tier of closers and should be drafted in any league that counts saves.

Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek pitched one inning on Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing only one hit and striking out two.

Fantasy Impact: Cishek is locked in as Miami's closer and should build on his success from previous years, especially considering the fact that his team will likely win more games. He improved his strikeout rate last season to an impressive 11.57 K/9 and should end up as a great RP option again this year.

Fantasy Impact: He was pretty good last year, finishing with 39 saves and a 3.19 ERA. He enters 2015 as the undisputed closer for the Fish.
