Cubs' Steve Cishek: Inks multi-year deal with Cubs
Cishek started his age-31 season with the Mariners, but was shipped to Tampa Bay in a July trade. Since landing on the Rays, the reliever was marvelous, sporting a 1.09 ERA across 24.2 innings. His strikeout rate also climbed a bit up to 9.5 K/9, which is right in line with his career average. As long as the physical checks out, Cishek will join the late-inning mix in Chicago. Brandon Morrow is the current favorite to enter the year as the closer, but Carl Edwards also looms as a worthwhile option late in games, and the Cubs are reportedly still in on potentially bringing Wade Davis back at the right price.
