Steve Cishek signs with White Sox for one year

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports the White Sox are signing reliever Steve Cishek to a one-year, $6 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek will likely slide in as Chicago's top set up man for Alex Colome. In 2019 he appeared in 70 games, posting a 2.95 ERA and saving seven games.

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.
