      Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Picks up first loss

      Jose Cisnero (0-1) allowed one run on one hit over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Thursday against the Pirates. He struck out one.Starter Jose Urena left the game after seven innings with the score tied 2-2, but Cisnero and then Gregory Soto both struggled in the eighth as Pittsburgh scored twice. Soto has been mostly solid for the Detroit Tigers but Cisnero has struggled, as he's now allowed seven hits and five earned runs in just 6.2 innings pitched. He also blew his only save opportunity to date, and at this point, Soto should be considered the frontrunner for future save opportunities.

      Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Earns Opening Day hold

      Jose Cisnero pitched a scoreless inning with two strikeouts to record a hold in Thursday's win over Cleveland.Cisnero was the first Detroit reliever to appear in the game, coming on for Matthew Boyd with two outs in the sixth. The righty breezed through his three batters on 14 pitches and handed things over to Daniel Norris. Gregory Soto recorded the save but also allowed two runs in the process. Soto should continue to get the first crack at the closer's role early in the season, but Cisnero could be an option at some point if the former hits a rough patch or goes down with an injury.

      Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Mixed results so far

      Jose Cisnero has allowed two runs across 2.1 innings in Grapefruit League action. He's given up one hit and three walks while striking out three.Cisnero was tagged for two runs in a third of an inning in his most recent outing Friday, but he had pitched two scoreless innings in his previous two outings. The righty is in the mix to close for Detroit, though he's likely behind Gregory Soto and Bryan Garcia at this point. However, no one in the Detroit bullpen has clearly established themselves as a dominant closer, so Cisnero could definitely get some save opportunities this season. He logged a solid 3.03 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 2020, though he blew his only two save chances and has yet to convert a save in the majors in seven tries.

      Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Could earn closer role

      Jose Cisnero is one of several options to close out games for the Detroit Tigers to begin the season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.New Detroit manager A.J. Hinch doesn't have an established closer, so it'll be worth watching how the bullpen shakes out in spring training. Lefty Gregory Soto and righty Bryan Garcia are probably the frontrunners to close, but Cisnero will be in the mix after posting a solid 3.03 ERA and 1.11 WHIP across 29.2 innings in 2020. He's never earned a save at the MLB level, however.

      Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Charged with loss Friday

      Jose Cisnero (2-3) allowed a two-run homer along with one punchout in 1.1 innings as he was dealt the loss against the White Sox on Friday.Cisnero relieved Casey Mize with a man on first and one out in the sixth inning and immediately wound up in a jam after nailing Tim Anderson with a fastball. Three pitches later, Eloy Jimenez was rounding the bases after Cisnero served him a high fastball that was taken yard to put the White Sox up 4-3. The right-hander is in quite the rut, as he has allowed seven runs over his last four innings, and he could be demoted to a lower-leverage role in the near future.

A Miguel Sano single with one out tied the game at 3-3. Cisnero retired the next batter, but then Byron Buxton hustled out an infield single to bring home the winning run and saddle Cisnero with his first blown save of the season. The 31-year-old still has a solid 2.21 ERA, so he should continue to see some save opportunities, but the Detroit Tigers may also turn to Gregory Soto and Buck Farmer depending on matchups, making the Detroit closer situation murky at the moment.
