Steve Cishek signs two-year deal with the Cubs

The Cubs have signed Steve Cishek to a two-year deal in the $12 - $14 million range, according to Jerry Crasnick.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek had a rough and injury-plagued year in 2017, but, health permitting, should bounce back with the Cubs. It's unlikely that he'll threaten for the closer's role, so won't have much fantasy value next season.

Fantasy Impact

Cishek has had a rocky season, but still has solid overall numbers. He is sporting a 3.10 ERA and had picked up 25 saves before losing his closer role to Edwin Diaz. However, Cishek has found a nice role as a setup man, as he not allowed a run in his last seven appearances.
