Steven Cishek was throwing between 82-84 mph as a high school senior in Cape Cod, but has been up to 95 this season and has a prototypical pitcher's body. His fastball shows occasional plus run and sink and his arm works well from a low-three-quarter arm slot, allowing him to pitch with average command of his fastball, which sits between 90-93 mph. His slider is below-average but his changeup is a plus offering. Cishek had elbow soreness as a sophomore, which was alleviated by improving his conditioning and strength. He was tough to scout as a middle reliever at a small school, but at least a dozen teams have had him crosschecked, and he could be taken as high as the fourth round.
