Steve Cishek Signs with the White Sox

The White Sox have signed relief pitcher Steve Cishek to a 1 year, $6 million deal. The contract has an option, that could possibly raise the total to as much as $12 million. Cishek played with the Cubs last year, and he went 4-6 with a 2.95 ERA. He makes it 4 pitchers for the White Sox in the bullpen with an ERA below 3.00. He is the closing piece to the White Sox win-now mentality. Cishek has now played for 6 different teams over 10 years, and he has a career ERA of 2.69. He pitches in a funky sidearm motion. The White Sox’s crosstown foes, the Cubs, have yet to address their pitching need this offseason.
