News: Cishek struck out a pair of Braves during a perfect 10th inning Monday on the way to his 22nd save of the year. Impact: Since getting touched up for three earned runs without recording an out in his last appearance before the All-Star break, Cishek has cobbled together three straight scoreless, hitless frames. He's allowed just one walk with four strikeouts over that time as he continues to recover from a brief rough patch to close the first half. Cishek's name perennially pops up in trade rumors this time of year, but if the Marlins can put together a strong week, it's unlikely that the team will sell off any major pieces.(RotoWire, )

News: Cishek gave up three runs on three hits and a walk without recording an out Wednesday while picking his third blown save of the season. Impact: With two blown saves in his last four appearances and a four-run clunker against the A's on June 27, Cishek has pushed his season ERA from 1.93 to 3.76 in a span of two weeks. The Marlins have made no indication that a change is on the horizon in the ninth inning, but Cishek's recent performance has raised at least a shred of doubt regarding his job security.(RotoWire, )
