Cubs' Steve Cishek: Snags a hold with scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek pitched a scoreless seventh inning in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Pirates to record his 18th hold of the season.

Cishek allowed a harmless two-out single but was able to retire the side on just 13 pitches. While Pedro Strop has been the fill-in closer with Brandon Morrow (biceps) on the DL, Cishek has been very effective for the Cubs all season, as he now has a stellar 1.79 ERA to go along with the 18 holds.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Grabs third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek earned the save Tuesday, firing a scoreless inning against the Giants.

Manager Joe Maddon indicated regular closer Brandon Morrow was unavailable for a planned second straight day off in this one after pitching in consecutive games over the weekend. In his stead, Cishek has been a reliable option all season long, with a 1.96 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 45 strikeouts in 41.1 innings and now three saves.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Picks up win Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek (2-0) recorded the win Thursday against the Dodgers by tossing 1.2 scoreless innings of relief. He gave up a walk and struck out one.

Cubs starter Jose Quintana was shaky through five innings, and he actually came out with Chicago down 3-1, as Clayton Kershaw held the Cubs in check. However, Chicago got to the Los Angeles bullpen, which set Cishek up for the win with his strong relief work. The veteran righty has been good all season out of the Cubs' bullpen, as he now has a sparkling 1.75 ERA to go along with the two wins and two saves.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Could be in the mix for short-term saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs will utilize the best matchups in the ninth inning with Brandon Morrow (back) on the 10-day DL, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports, which figures to put Cishek in the mix for saves in the near future.

Cishek has recorded two saves this season, most recently picking one up on June 9 when the Cubs decided to rest Morrow. Pedro Strop and Justin Wilson figure to be in the mix for saves as well, but Cishek's experience (123 career saves) could give him a leg up. It's unclear exactly how long Morrow will be sidelined at this point, so Cishek could be a good speculative add for owners in need of saves.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Makes appearance in left field Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

CIshek and fellow picher Brian Duensing both appeared in left field in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers, though neither player had a fielding chance, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cishek started the eighth inning on the mound, but after allowing a leadoff single to Orlando Arcia, Cubs manager Joe Maddon got creative. He brought in the lefty Duensing to face the left-hand hitting Eric Thames but shifted Cishek to left field rather than the bench. After Duensing struck out Thames, Cishek swapped the two pitchers, allowing Cishek to pitch to the right-handed Lorenzo Cain. Duensing ended up finishing the inning by retiring the left-handed Christian Yelich. "I have a whole new perspective when playing the outfield," said Cishek, who made his MLB debut there. It's unclear if Maddon will employ this strategy much going forward, though he's certainly known for thinking outside of the box.
