Former closer Cishek to be recalled from Double-A by Marlins

MIAMI (AP) Demoted closer Steve Cishek will be recalled Saturday from Double-A Jacksonville by the Miami Marlins.

Cishek was 1-5 with a 6.98 ERA when he was sent down June 1. He pitched six scoreless innings in five games for the Suns with two saves.

Miami optioned right-handers Kendry Flores and Andre Rienzo to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday. Both will join the rotation there.

The Marlins plan to activate right-hander Mat Latos from the disabled list to start Saturday against the Rockies.
