Fantasy Impact:

Longtime reliever Steve Cishek bounced around with the Chicago Cubs and White Sox over the past three seasons. In 2018 and 2019, Cishek totaled 11 saves, 36 holds, a 2.55 ERA with a 24.3% strikeout rate, and a 10.3% walk rate in 134.1 innings pitched. However, in 2020, Cishek recorded a 5.40 ERA with a 22.6% strikeout rate and a 9.7% walk rate in 20 IP. At this point, he's not fantasy-relevant unless it's in deep saves plus holds leagues, assuming he makes the roster.
