Steve Cishek

Beinfest says Cishek could get a chance to earn a spot in Spring Training. This is pretty weird, considering Cishek spent time in A ball this year. However, in the time he spent in AA this year, he did put up a 3.4 K/BB ratio, didn't allow a HR in 31.1 innings, and ended up with a 2.47 FIP (suggesting he pitched much better than his 4.31 ERA would indicate).

 

Of course, he was also called up to the big leagues in September. Unlike the other relievers who were called up, Cishek actually looked like he belonged, somewhat. It's pretty irrelevant because the sample is small (3 games; 4.1 innings), but he pitched well (3 K, 1 BB, 0.00 ERA).

 

It's interesting that Cishek was specifically mentioned. We'll see. He definitely seems to have the stuff. His fastball can reach 95, has good sink, and he's got a good changeup too. That's what I remember from him in the short time in September.

Brilliant insight :lol :p

 

 

 

:hat

 

Seriously though, it would be great if Cishek could get the job done for the Marlins. The Marlins need some of their draft picks/farm system RP depth (that has been talked about some on these boards the past year+) to start panning out. It's really the way to build a solid bullpen for years.

 

Based on Cishek's #'s, there's a lot of stuff to like about him. MarlinsLou or Nny, etc. can correct me on this, but it seems like he's been putting up solid peripherals, in just about every area. Stuff is good enough, too.

 

Bottom line is, the way to build the pen is hoping some of these young guys pan out/making trades for guys with potential. I'd rather watch Cishek get a legitimate chance over last offseason's strategy when they just went out, and signed a bunch of journeymen (Veras, McClung, MacDougal, Turnbow, etc.)

Cishek's actually pitching in the AFL this winter.

7 games, 7.2 innings

2.35 ERA

.258 opponents batting average

10 K's/3 BB's

0.86 GO/AO

 

Based on his gamelogs, he's only had one bad outing. He's gone at least one scoreless inning, in six of his seven outings (one of the outings he pitched two scoreless innings).

 

Beinfest and the rest of the organization have probably been watching, and have probably been impressed. Probably part of the reason why Cishek, (unlike some of the other RP prospects), was specifically mentioned in the article.

Guys, we can win games with anyone as long as we score more runs than our opponent.

 

 

 

Genius!

As a matter of fact, the bullpen talk is irrelevant! If, for example, we go into the 9th inning with a 3 run lead every night, our closer can finish the year with an ERA of 18.00, and still be perfect! Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

I did like what I saw of Steve Cishek during the season, even though it was a few innings. If he could develop into a good relief pitcher, our bullpen could be solid. Badenhop, Sanches, Hensley, Nunez and Cishek would be the start of a good bullpen. We just can't have another Dan Meyer situation on our hands again this season.

It wouldn't surprise me if Brian Sanches became that guy next year, unfortunately. I probably said this last year too (and was wrong), but it honestly wouldn't surprise me. He's, statistically, been really lucky the past two years to put up the ERA's he's put up.

 

The only thing is that if it does happen, the front office doesn't really seem to see Sanches as a key reliever. Even when Sanches is good, he's just really mostly been used as a 6th-7th inning (sometimes when the team is losing to save some of the other arms, etc.) Meyer's downfall really hurt the team because he had a really important role on the team (lefty specialist/setup guy quickly became minor league journeyman scrub).

Isn't that like saying despite the holes in a boat, we can stay afloat as long as we just bail the water out faster than it comes in? Because eventually your arms will get too tired... Hey it's 6:39 in the morning and I'm tired, but I think there's something profound in that last sentence...maybe..or maybe I just need more sleep :boxed

An enquiring mind wants to know, lol :p

Add Veras and two lefties and we are good to go.

 

Cishek and Ceda and Marinez in the wings.

 

Marlins need bulpen Lefties. Plenty of right handers on the 40 man roster.

Dan Jennings is a left-handed option in the system.
