Marlins | Steve Cishek working on slider

Miami Marlins RP Steve Cishek has thrown in the bullpen every day since his last save chance Sunday, April 7, except for Wednesday, April 10, and Thursday, April 11. He's allowed four runs and four hits in 1 1/3 innings in his last two outings. "I just want to get a feel for my slider again because I've been throwing it a lot in bullpens," Cishek said. "Without it I'm a one-pitch pitcher for the most part. It's important."

Fantasy Tip: Cishek is a low-end closer, mainly because he pitches for arguably the weakest team in the league, meaning he won't receive many save chances. On top of it, he's off to a rough start. He can perform well in the closer role if he is consistent with his slider, but how often will those closures come?
