Description: Marlins closer Steve Cishek earned his 38th save of 2014 on Tuesday.

Description: Steve Cishek has replaced Heath Bell as the Marlins' new closer.
Insight: Cishek has had an outstanding year as Miami's setup man (4-0, 0.63 ERA) and now he's earned a shot at the ninth inning, thanks to Heath Bell's early season woes (11.42 ERA, four blown saves). Cishek might not be the permanent solution at closer but for now he is definitely worth a pick-up in fantasy.
