      By RotoWire Staff

      Cishek will test his knee before Thursday's game against the Dodgers to determine his availability, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

    • Cubs' Steve Cishek: Downplays knee bruise
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cishek (knee) said after Wednesday's win over the Rockies he should be good to go in a day or two, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Cishek suffered the right knee bruise prior to the game, when he was hit by an errant throw on the inside of his knee while playing catch. The 32-year-old was carted off the field after sustaining the injury, but it doesn't appear as though he'll require a trip to the injured list.

    • Cubs' Steve Cishek: Dealing with bruised knee
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cishek was diagnosed with a right knee bone bruise, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Cishek suffered the injury playing catch in the outfield prior to Wednesday's game; he was hit on the inside of his knee with an errant throw and ultimately had to be carted off the field. While he appears to have avoided a more serious injury, it remains to be seen whether the right-hander will be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's series finale.

    • Cubs' Steve Cishek: Nails down save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cishek allowed a run on two hits in an inning of work but was able to secure the save in Wednesday's 9-8 win over the Rockies. He struck out two. Cishek allowed a double and a single to start the ninth inning, but he retired the next three hitters, getting the final two via strikeout. The 32-year-old reliever now has six saves this year, but with Pedro Strop (hamstring) back from the injured list and Craig Kimbrel now joining the bullpen, Cishek will likely slot into a setup role moving forward.
