Name to Know- Steven Cishek
Standing 6 foot 5 inches the Florida Marlins rookie reliever Steven Cishek is a big man looming on the mound over the competition. The 5th round pick in 2007 has worked his was through the Fish's system and is working his way into a prominent role in their bullpen. Cishek got the customary September call-up last year when rosters expanded and made 3 scoreless appearances. This season he started in Triple-A, but was called up in May and has been doing brilliantly ever since. Cishek has worked 10.1 innings in 7 games with nary a run surrendered. For his career- 10 G, 14.2 IP, 10 K, 0.00 ERA, and 0.68 WHIP. Just last week he picked up his first career save, and while Leo Nunez is the closer for the time being, expect Cishek to get some holds.
