Indians | Cody Allen lights out in ninth

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:09:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen pitched the final 1 1/3 innings Saturday, June 13, against the Detroit Tigers, to nail down his 14th save of the season. Allen has just one blown save in 15 opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is an elite option in season-long leagues. With the Indians calling up star defensive SS Francisco Lindor, Allen's value could rise even higher with more opportunities.

Indians | Cody Allen nails down 12th save

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 20:55:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen recorded his 12th save during Cleveland's 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: It was Allen's fifth consecutive appearance without allowing a run, and after a rough start, he has now allowed just four earned runs over his last 17 games. Dating back to Saturday, April 29, Allen has eight saves. He is slowing working his ERA (5.01) down, too. And at this point, he appears to have a pretty solid grasp on the closing role.

Indians | Cody Allen spinning more curveballs

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:15:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen is throwing a higher percentage of curveballs this season, and he has increased his curveball percentage annually over the past three seasons. He utilized the curveball 28.3% in 2013, 3.7% last season, and so far this season, Allen is throwing it 41.3% of the time.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has leaned on his curveball to keep hitters off balance, as he primarily used the pitch as a putout option earlier in his career. Currently, the closer is struggling on the mound with a 10.00 ERA and a 2.44 WHIP with two losses, a blown save and only four converted saves. Manager Terry Francona has stood behind Allen, but Allen is clearly struggling, and hurting fantasy owners. Bryan Shaw deserves attention from the save vultures out there, as he may end up seizing the job from Allen.

Indians | Manager endorses Cody Allen

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen received a vote of confidence from manager Terry Francona Tuesday, April 21. "Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list."

Fantasy Tip: Allen rewarded his managers endorsement with a three-strikeout save Tuesday. Until he is removed from the role, which seems unlikely at this point, Allen should be viewed as a mid-tier save candidate. He has an 11.7 K/9 over the past three seasons, too.

Indians | Trevor Bauer gets raw deal

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:36:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer allowed just four hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings Monday, April 20, against the Chicago White Sox but ended up with a no-decision after CL Cody Allen blew his first save.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer has a miniscule 0.95 ERA through three outings while posting six or more innings and recording seven or more strikeouts in each start. At just $3,900 (or 7.8% of cap) he is a fantastic FantasyScore bargain while running hot.

Indians | Still prefer no specific closer

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 15:33:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said he thinks the team's bullpen is still best off without a designated closer. He added that lately the situations have led him to use RP Cody Allen as the team's closer.

Fantasy Tip: Allen remains your best option for saves in fantasy leagues until Francona shows otherwise.

Indians | Cautious of using Cody Allen, Bryan Shaw

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 14:20:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians RPs Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw will be monitored so they're not used too much. "Because they'll say yes [if I summon them to pitch], I need to check myself sometimes," manager Terry Francona said.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is the clear-cut closer according to his recent use, so maybe Francona will ease up when the situation does not call for a save. Shaw continues to be useful as a handcuff and RP innings filler in deep leagues.
