Honorable Mention: Steve Cishek
There are many players I have left out on this list who have been disappointing, but Steve Cishek stands above the rest. Cishek had performed well in all four seasons prior to 2015 with the Marlins.
The long time closer struggled right out of the gate, posting more blown saves than recorded ones. Many claim that he lost Mike Redmond his job. By the end of May, Cishek held a 6.98 ERA, but improved in his final days with the Marlins.
Cishek was eventually traded to St. Louis in exchange for Kyle Barraclough, a Double-A pitcher. What little return Cishek yielded for an excellent career in Miami.
