Steve Cishek tosses scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's win over Reds

Nationals RP Steve Cishek tossed a scoreless ninth inning Sunday, allowing one hit while also walking one and picking up the save in the Nationals' 5-4 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek has held opponents scoreless in six of his last seven appearances for the Nationals, posting a 4K/4BB ratio in that span. The right-hander usually is not on the mound in most high leverage situations and should not be rostered at this time.

This is a good destination for Cishek, who may have a chance to get some save opportunities in a questionable Nationals bullpen alongside Kyle Finnegan and Tanner Rainey. Cishek stayed efficient in 2021, his 12th year in the league. He had a 3.42 ERA and 64 Ks in 68 innings last season with the Angels.

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.
