Allen was recalled from Cleveland's alternate training site Friday. Allen was on Cleveland's taxi squad and will join the active roster in advance of the final series of the regular season. Allen appeared in two games during his stint with the team in August, allowing four runs on nine hits with a 3:6 K:BB over 7.2 innings.
Allen was optioned to the Indians' alternate training site Monday. Allen made two relief appearances since joining the major-league roster Aug. 11, and he allowed four runs on nine hits and six walks while striking out three over 7.2 innings. The southpaw will attempt to sort things out at the alternate training site. Catcher Sandy Leon (personal) was activated in a corresponding move.
Allen was recalled from the Indians' alternate training site Tuesday. Allen began the season at the alternate camp, but he'll join Cleveland's pitching staff after Mike Clevinger and Zach Plesac were placed on the restricted list Tuesday. Allen made nine major-league appearances (four starts) last season, posting a 6.18 ERA and 17:13 K:BB over 27.2 innings.
Allen was reassigned to the Indians' alternate training site Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Allen was able to compete for a major-league roster spot in spring training and summer camp, but he'll find himself on the outside looking in ahead of the regular season. However, the 23-year-old could be one of Cleveland's top options to fill in if its pitching staff suffers injuries. Allen posted a 6.18 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over nine appearances (four starts) with the Padres and Indians last season.
Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday. Allen was in camp competing for a spot at the back of Cleveland's rotation, but his slim chance got even slimmer once the delayed season gave Mike Clevinger time to recover from his knee injury by the time play resumes. With a career 4.76 ERA in 107.2 Triple-A innings to go with his 6.18 ERA in 27.2 big-league innings, he has more to prove at the highest levels before being trusted as a fantasy option.
