  • Phillies' Kolby Allard: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Allard to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    The 26-year-old joined the Phillies on a one-year, $1 million contract in January, but he'll unsurprisingly begin the campaign at Lehigh Valley since he still has a minor-league option. Allard missed the second half of last season due to left shoulder nerve irritation and made just six appearances between the majors and Triple-A.

  • Phillies' Kolby Allard: Inks one-year deal with Phillies

    Allard signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Phillies on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Allard, 26, didn't pitch after mid-July last season because of left shoulder nerve inflammation, although he presumably was given a clean bill of health prior to inking his deal with Philadelphia. The left-hander has posted a career 6.10 ERA over 69 appearances (38 starts) at the major-league level, accumulating a 204:84 K:BB across 245 innings. He does have an option remaining, so Allard could begin 2024 at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

  • Kolby Allard: Heading out of Atlanta

    Allard was non-tendered by Atlanta on Friday, MLB.com reports.

    He didn't pitch after July 16 due to left shoulder nerve inflammation. Allard was limited to 19 total innings between Triple-A and the majors in 2023. He has a career 6.10 ERA in 245 MLB innings.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Placed on 60-day IL

    Atlanta placed Allard on the 60-day injured list Tuesday with left shoulder nerve inflammation.

    Allard made an early exit from his start Sunday against the White Sox due to left shoulder tightness and will now be sidelined through at least the middle of September, if not the full remainder of the 2023 campaign. The 25-year-old southpaw had allowed nine earned runs on 16 hits and four walks through 12.1 major-league innings this season with Atlanta.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Removed with shoulder tightness

    Allard left Sunday's game against the White Sox with left shoulder tightness.

    Chicago added insult to injury in the form of four runs on seven hits, including a mammoth 461-foot shot off the bat of Jake Burger. Allard retired just five of the 12 batters he faced. His availability for his next start is up in the air. Allard probably isn't long for the rotation anyway with Max Fried (forearm) nearing a return.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Leaves with apparent injury

    Allard left Sunday's game against the White Sox in the second inning after chatting briefly with a team trainer, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Allard did not have it Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while recording just five outs. It seems an injury was in play, leaving Allard's availability for his next start up in the air. His ugly outing raised his ERA to 6.57 through 12.1 big-league innings this season.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Goes five innings in no-decision

    Allard gave up three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision versus the Guardians on Tuesday.

    Allard threw 73 pitches (45 strikes) and left in line for the win until Kirby Yates struggled in the seventh inning to surrender Atlanta's lead. While it wasn't as sharp as his season debut versus the Twins, Allard has done well to keep baserunners down with a 0.93 WHIP over his first 9.2 innings of the campaign. He's posted an 11:2 K:BB as well. Allard is not expected to start again before the All-Star break, and he'll likely be at the back of the rotation to start the second half.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Receives another start

    Allard is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Guardians at Progressive Field.

    Allard will make his second straight turn through the rotation, filling the spot that previously belonged to rookie Jared Shuster, who was recently optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. After spending the first three months of the season on the 60-day injured list while recovering from a Grade 2 oblique strain, Allard was activated following two minor-league rehab starts and immediately impressed in his 2023 debut with the big club. Though he took a no-decision last week in his start versus the Twins, Allard struck out eight over 4.2 scoreless innings while allowing just four baserunners. He induced swings and misses on 14 of his 71 pitches, showing the sort of strikeout upside that belies his career 19.0 K% over 237.1 big-league innings. While Allard doesn't have much of a reliable track record to fall back on beyond his previous start, he could make for a decent streaming option Tuesday versus a weak Cleveland offense.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Shines in spot start

    Allard did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three hits and one walk over 4.2 scoreless innings against the Twins. He struck out eight.

    Allard couldn't have asked for a better start to his outing, as he struck out the side in the first inning as Minnesota's hitters fell victim to his four-seam fastball. The lefty struck out six of the first nine batters he faced and really only got into trouble in the fifth after surrendering a single and a walk to open the inning. He struck out the next two batters before being relieved by Kirby Yates and eventually taking the no-decision. He made a strong case to stick around with Wednesday's scoreless outing, and with Jared Shuster optioned Wednesday, it looks like Allard will get at least one more start in the immediate future.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Starting Wednesday vs. MIN

    Allard (oblique) will start Wednesday's game against the Twins, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Allard will come off the 60-day injured list to make his first start of the 2023 season in the majors after suffering a Grade 2 oblique strain in the early portion of March. He's posted a 2.70 ERA with eight strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a pair of appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett. The left-hander will get a chance to be a part of the Atlanta rotation, but he'll have to pitch well considering several arms, including Michael Soroka and the recently demoted AJ Smith-Shawver, could be strong candidates for promotion in coming weeks.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Activated ahead of start vs. Twins

    Allard (oblique) was activated from the 60-day injured list in advance of his start Wednesday against the Twins.

    It's a pretty solid home matchup for Allard, as the Twins lead the majors in strikeout rate (26.9 percent). Allard, who was originally drafted by Atlanta with the No. 14 overall pick in 2015, will be making his first start for the team since 2018, after spending four years with the Rangers. He had a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB in 6.2 innings across two rehab starts.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Beginning rehab assignment

    Allard (oblique) reported to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday to begin a rehab assignment.

    The left-hander opened the season on the 60-day injured list with a strained right oblique, but he's now been cleared for game action. Allard figures to require multiple appearances before being cleared to return from the injured list, so he likely won't be fully ready until at least early July. Even with Atlanta's injury issues in the rotation, the 25-year-old isn't guaranteed a spot on the big-league roster once healthy.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Lands on 60-day IL

    Allard (oblique) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to March 27.

    Allard suffered a Grade 2 right oblique strain in early March, and his move to the 60-day IL guarantees he'll be out for at least the first two months of the campaign. The 25-year-old was acquired from the Rangers in November and will likely head to Triple-A Gwinnett once healthy.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: Will begin season on injured list

    Allard suffered a Grade 2 right oblique strain Thursday and will begin the season on the injured list, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Allard had been off to a strong start this spring, allowing just one earned run through five innings while striking out four batters. He was traded from Texas to Atlanta over the offseason and will likely begin the year in Triple-A Gwinnett once he's healthy.

  • Braves' Kolby Allard: To start Grapefruit League opener

    Allard will start Atlanta's Grapefruit League opener Saturday against the Red Sox, Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Allard is currently buried on the rotation depth chart for the reigning NL East champions, but he can do his best to try to change that with a strong showing this spring. The 25-year-old former top prospect will lug a rough-looking 6.07 career major-league ERA into the 2023 campaign.
