Steve Cishek locks down fifth save

Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out one to earn his fifth save in the Cubs' 2-1 win over the Astros on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek allowed two runs while failing to record an out in his last outing against the Reds, so this was a step in the right direction, without question. With Pedro Strop ready to return, Cishek's days as the closer in Chicago could be numbered. But for now, he remains a viable option in any fantasy bullpen.

Steve Cishek blows save, hung with loss Friday

Steve Cishek was charged with his second blown save after serving up a two-run home run in the top of the ninth in the Cubs' 6-5 loss to the Reds on Friday. He also took the loss, falling to 1-2 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek was on borrowed time as the Cubs' closer anyway with Pedro Strop nearing a return, but one has to wonder whether he'll get another chance after this one. Cishek's value is fading, and he'll probably be dropped by most owners in a week's time.

Steve Cishek picks up fourth save on Sunday

Steve Cishek picked up a seven-out save on Sunday versus the Nationals, striking out two and allowing one hit to protect a 6-5 lead.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek was fresh after not being used for several games. He has become the Cubs reliever to own in fantasy with Pedro Strop sidelined. Cishek now owns a 2.45 ERA to go along with four saves and 23 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched.

Steve Cishek records two-out save Tuesday

Steve Cishek recorded the final two outs in the Cubs' 3-1 win over the Reds on Tuesday. He earned his third save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Kyle Hendricks started the inning, but was pulled for lefty Kyle Ryan after walking a batter. Ryan retired Joey Votto, and Cishek was brought in to finish the game. Cishek has gotten the save in back-to-back games for the Cubs and looks to be their closer with Pedro Strop on the IL.

Steven Cishek earns second save Sunday

Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth inning for his second save in the Cubs' 4-1 win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek appears to be the closer for the Cubs with Pedro Strop on the IL. Brandon Kintzler pitched ahead of Cishek, and Cishek has more experience in the role, for what that's worth. He's worth adding if available, as he could be getting quite a few saves in the interim for the Cubs.
