      Cody Allen: Fails to receive qualifying offer

      Cody Allen did not receive a $17.9 million qualifying offer from the Indians before Friday's deadline, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.Allen will officially hit the free-agent market after spending the past eight years in the Cleveland organization. During the 2018 season, Allen appeared in 70 games and collected 27 saves out of 32 opportunities, but logged a career-worst 4.70 ERA and 4.4 BB/9. The soon-to-be 30-year-old still did a solid job for the Indians, but a slight dip in velocity -- from 94.3 mph in 2017 to 93.5 mph this season -- combined with a greater propensity for giving up the long ball (1.5 HR/9) prohibited him from being the All-Star closer that we've been accustomed to seeing.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Expected to return to bullpen Monday

      Cody Allen is expected to make an appearance out of the bullpen during Monday's series opener against the White Sox, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.Allen hasn't pitched in a game since Sept. 15, with manager Terry Francona instead opting to have the club's longtime closer toss bullpen sessions or throw from long distance in the outfield with the hope of staying sharp in October. The prescribed rest period was also influenced by Allen's ongoing struggles on the mound, which has been reflected in his ugly 1.48 WHIP, 5.3 BB/9 and 7-for-11 success rate on save chances since the All-Star break. While the right-hander expressed confidence that the time off has allowed him to fix some mechanical flaws, he'll probably need to perform well in his appearances over the final week of the regular season to guarantee himself a high-leverage role in the playoffs. For at least the time being, Brad Hand and Andrew Miller look like better bets for saves among the Cleveland Indians' relievers as the regular season winds down.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Earns 27th save

      Cody Allen worked around a hit with a strikeout in a scoreless inning of work to earn his 27th save of the season Tuesday against the Rays.Allen entered with a two-run lead and promptly allowed the leadoff hitter to reach, bringing the tying run to the plate. He then buckled down and retired the next three batters he faced to close out the victory. Allen's role has changed a bit with Brad Hand in the fold, but he's recorded two saves in his last three outings and should continue to see his share of opportunities as long as he keeps performing.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Picks up 26th save

      Cody Allen picked up his 26th save of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays, allowing one hit while striking out one across a scoreless ninth inning.Allen was able to work around a one-out double from Aledmys Diaz to secure his first save since Aug. 20. The right-hander has now strung together six straight scoreless appearances, lowering his ERA from 4.66 to 4.23 over that stretch. It's worth noting that Brad Hand worked multiple innings Friday night, his third appearance in the last four days, so he may have been unavailable. Allen figures to see occasional save chances down the stretch, though Hand still looks to be the team's No. 1 option at the moment.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Blows another save against Twins

      Cody Allen (4-6) gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one in an inning of work Wednesday, blowing his fifth save of the season in a 4-3 loss to the Twins.Entering the game in the seventh inning didn't help Allen reverse his recent skid -- he's blown three of his six save chances in August, posting a 5.23 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 10.1 innings on the month despite a 13.1 K/9. Expect Brad Hand to see most of the closing action for Cleveland until Allen rights the ship.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Takes loss in blown save

      Cody Allen (4-5) allowed two solo home runs without recording an out to blow the save and take a loss against the Royals on Friday.Allen entered in the ninth inning with a one-run lead and promptly served up a game-tying homer to Ryan O'Hearn -- for his fourth blown save of the year -- followed by a walkoff homer to Hunter Dozier. Allen has now allowed runs to score in three consecutive outings and sports a 4.82 ERA over his last nine games, going 4-for-6 in save chances in that time. It's worth noting that Brad Hand has gone 4-for-4 in save chances with a 0.90 ERA over his last nine games.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Picks up 25th save

      Cody Allen gave up one run on two hits and a walk but managed to pick up his 25th save of the season Monday in Boston.He didn't record a strikeout after entering the ninth inning to protect a 5-3 lead, but did enough to secure the win. Brad Hand recorded the final two outs of a scoreless eighth inning, coming in to face the lefty-hitting Brock Holt, who was then pinch hit for. This outing broke a streak of four straight scoreless appearances for Allen. While his numbers aren't elite by any means, he should still get a fair amount of save chances over the final five-plus weeks.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Nails down 24th save

      Cody Allen walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 24th save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Orioles.He continues to split closing duties with Brad Hand, but the competition seems to have spurred Allen back to his usual dominant form -- he's now posted a 0.75 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB in 12 innings over his last 10 appearances while picking up two wins, four saves and two holds.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Records two-out save

      Cody Allen allowed a hit and struck out a pair while recording a scoreless two-out save Sunday against the White Sox.Allen came into a precarious situation in the ninth inning, where the hosts had already scored two runs and had a pair of men on base. He allowed a two-run triple to the first man he faced but was able to close things out with a pair of punchouts. While Allen's performance wasn't ideal, he got the job done yet again and has now been charged with just one earned run over his last 9.1 innings to bring his ERA to 4.22.

      Indians' Cody Allen: Rebounds to register save

      Cody Allen gave up a hit but pitched a scoreless inning Saturday to log his 22nd save of the season.Brad Hand made things interesting ahead of him in the seventh and eighth innings, yet he again set up Allen, who worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to induce a popout, a flyout and a strikeout. The righty blew a save Wednesday but wound up credited with the win, and while Allen has struggled lately while dipping to a 4.28 seasonal ERA, it appears Hand will only steal the occasional save opportunity with a bevvy of lefty hitters due up.
