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

Cishek (1-1) pitched a scoreless inning with two strikeouts to earn the win Tuesday against the Marlins.

CIshek became the pitcher of record when Kris Bryant blasted a walkoff three-run home run in the 5-2 Cubs' win. The veteran righty has allowed three runs in an outing twice so far this season, but he's otherwise not allowed an earned run in his 14 other appearances. Overall, Cishek has a 3.38 ERA, and he should remain in a middle relief role for Chicago, though the recent struggles of closer Pedro Strop could open the door for some save opportunities.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek tossed 1.1 scoreless innings and struck out two en route to recording his first save of the season in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Mariners. He gave up one hit and one walk in the 22-pitch appearance.

Pedro Strop has been operating as the Cubs' primary closer this season, but he may have just been picking up some rest after working two innings Sunday. Cishek was summoned for the save situation in Strop's stead and closed the door, inducing a double play and then stranding the tying run at third with an inning-ending strikeout. With many members of the Chicago bullpen off to poor starts this season and Brandon Morrow (elbow) not expected to return from the injured list until July at the earliest, Cishek looks like the top alternative for saves in the event Strop misses time or loses job security.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Implodes in loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek (0-1) allowed three walks and three earned runs without recording an out and was charged with the loss Wednesday against the Braves.

Cishek was summoned to begin the bottom of the eighth inning and the Cubs up 4-2, and the veteran struggled mightily against the heart of Atlanta's order. After walking Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuna and Nick Markakis, Cishek got the hook, and all three runners would come around to score as the Braves pulled ahead. The righty's ERA now sits at a nightmarish 16.20, though after pitching well for the Cubs in 2018, he should stay in a high-leverage role despite the hiccup.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Back but not looking good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek returned from illness to record one out Saturday against the Rockies, allowing five runs on five hits and a walk.

It's unclear if the illness can be blamed for Cishek's performance or if he simply had a bad outing. The reliever's spring ERA now sits at an ugly 9.64, though his other five appearances were all scoreless.

Cubs' Steve Cishek: Set to pitch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cishek (illness) is scheduled to pitch in Saturday's game against the Rockies, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cishek was originally expected to return to the mound Friday, but instead will follow Jon Lester against Colorado. Cishek has been out the last few days due to an illness but his status for Opening Day shouldn't be impacted, which could be significant with fill-in closer Pedro Strop (hamstring) not guaranteed to be ready.
