Analysis: A former closer for the Mariners and Marlins, Cishek gives the Rays an experienced setup option in front of Alex Colome. The 31-year-old sports a 3.15 ERA in 23 appearances this year and has been notoriously tough on right-handed hitters, holding them to a .196 average and a .538 OPS. Tampa Bay has prioritized bolstering its bullpen for the stretch run, having picked up lefty Dan Jennings from the White Sox just a day ago.
