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.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Nabs save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek recorded the save in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Pirates by tossing a scoreless ninth inning with a strikeout.

For the second straight day, the Cubs bypassed regular closer Brandon Morrow in a save situation. On Friday, Pedro Strop shut the door on Pittsburgh, and on Saturday Cishek was successful in his save opportunity. An injury hasn't been reported with Morrow, so this looks like simply an extra day of rest. That means Cishek will likely shift back into a middle relief role Sunday. He's been effective for the Cubs whenever he's been out there, as the veteran righty now has a 1.88 ERA.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Records fifth hold Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek recorded his fifth hold of the season in Friday's win over the Mets, retiring a single batter via strikeout.

The veteran reliever has been a great addition for the Cubs, as he now has a 1.75 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 25.2 innings of work. Brandon Morrow has been stellar in the closer's role, but if he ever gets hurt or just needs a day off, Cishek would likely be next in line for saves at this point given his strong performance and experience closing out games for Miami and Seattle.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Pitches well Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek tossed 1.2 perfect innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox with three strikeouts.

Cishek needed 20 pitches to retire five hitters, and the smooth outing brought his season ERA down to a tidy 1.96. Brandon Morrow is doing fine as the Cubs' new closer, but Cishek would likely be the go-to option if Morrow needed rest or suffered an injury.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Records first save Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek notched his first save of the season in Monday's win over the Rockies by recording the final two outs of the game. He walked one and struck out one.

Regular closer Brandon Morrow had appeared three times over the past four days, so manager Joe Maddon mixed things up in the ninth inning on Monday. Lefty Brian Duensing recorded the first out of the inning before Cishek shut the door. The veteran righty now has a solid 2.70 ERA, and it looks like he'll be first in line for saves whenever Morrow needs a day off.
