Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen indicated to reporters Saturday that Steve Cishek will be his fill-in closer.

Heath Bell is struggling mightily in the early going, so the Fish are going to use him in lower-pressure situations for a little while. Cishek, 25, has registered a dominant 0.91 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 15/6 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings this season and should do well as Miami's temporary ninth-inning man. Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica could also see some save opportunities.
