Steve Cishek opts out of deal with Astros

The Astros and Steve Cishek have parted ways after the right-hander requested his release.

Fantasy Impact

The move even came as a surprise to manager Dusty Baker, who said on Friday that he had not yet made a decision on whether the 34-year-old would make the Opening Day roster. Regardless, Cishek is now a free agent and can sign with any teaam. He owns an impressive 2.78 ERA through 576 innings (594 games) over 11 seasons. He has posted sub-3.00 ERAs in eight of those years.

Steve Cishek released by the Houston Astros after request

RHP Steve Cishek has requested his release from the Houston Astros, which has been granted, according to Mark Feinsand of

Fantasy Impact

The 34-year-old Cishek was a long shot to make the Astros roster so he'll look to latch on to another team before the regular season gets underway. He put up a lackluster 5.40 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 20 innings with the Chicago White Sox last season.

Steve Cishek signs minor-league deal with the Astros

Veteran reliever Steve Cishek signed a minor-league deal with the Astros. He's currently a non-roster invite and could earn $2.25 million, plus incentives.

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.

Fantasy Impact
