Miami Marlins - 93% owned

Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek threw a perfect ninth inning in Wednesday's win over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, the Marlins had a four run lead so it was not a save situation. Cishek has had a rough go of it so far this year, but he should be on the way to righting the ship. As the Marlins start winning, Cishek will start saving games.

Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek couldn't hold a one run lead in the ninth inning, giving up a run on two hits with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Cishek wasn't hit hard and was simply the victim of bad luck. Two well placed hits and a botched double play did him in. Cishek is an excellent closer and should improve as the year goes along. Try to buy low if an owner in your league is prone to panic.

Like most of the Miami Marlins, closer Steve Cishek struggled on Tuesday against the Atlanta Braves, getting only one out but allowing four runs.

Fantasy Impact: Cishek came into an 8-2 game in the top of the ninth to get some work and left with one out and the bases loaded after already allowing a run. David Phelps then came in and allowed three more runs to score, leaving Cishek's ERA at 108.00.

Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek pitched a perfect inning on Tuesday, allowing no baserunners and striking out one.

Fantasy Impact: Cishek's Grapefruit League ERA sits at an even 2.00. He should be a great source of saves and strikeouts and should absolutely be owned in all leagues.

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.
