      Cardinals pitcher Steve Cishek has control issues Monday

      Cardinals pitcher Steve Cishek was unable to complete an inning's work Monday, retiring two hitters and walking three before being removed in a 3-0 win over the Pirates. Cishek's control completely eluded him Monday night; after walks to two of the first three hitters he faced, a free pass to pinch-hitter Michael Morse brought an end to the 29-year-old's night. Few players have seen their fantasy stock fall as far as Cishek in 2015. Beginning the year as Miami's closer, the sidewinder has since been relegated to a middle relief role with the Cardinals after a surprise demotion to Double-A. While Cishek owns a 2.18 ERA as a member of the Cardinals, a 1.44 WHIP will make him difficult to use in high-leverage situations this postseason.
