Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
Cisnero has yet to overcome the control problems (4.8 BB/9) that he's battled throughout his career, but the hard-throwing right-hander (93.7 mph fastball) has at least shown strikeout potential (8.6 K/9) over 48.1 big league innings. The soon-to-be 26-year-old struggled in five relief appearances with the Astros early last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair a strained UCL in late May. Cisnero was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City in November to clear a spot on Houston's 40-man roster, but he'll likely be ready to pitch again sometime this summer.
Cisnero was assumed to step in as the Astros' closer after they traded Jose Veras last season, but the soon-to-be 25-year-old righty struggled when that window of opportunity opened, and was subsequently optioned to Triple-A. Primarily a starter in the minors, Cisnero was summoned to make his major league debut in late April when the Astros needed a long reliever. For the most part, he performed well in that role, with a solid 8.5 K/9 rate over 43.2 innings, but he'll need to improve his control (4.5 BB/9) and do a better job of keeping the ball in the park (1.0 HR/9) if he wants another shot in the majors this season.
