  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Sent back to minors

    The Rangers optioned Allard to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    The Rangers will swap Allard out of their bullpen for a fresh arm in Josh Sborz, who was called up from Round Rock in advance of Thursday's game against the Royals. Allard covered three innings out of the bullpen in Wednesday's 8-2 loss, giving up one run on two hits and a walk while striking out one.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Takes loss as bulk reliever

    Allard (0-2) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against Kansas City, pitching three innings and allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one.

    Allard was called up to the big club earlier in the day and ended up handling the most work in what amounted to a bullpen game for Texas. He gave up only one run -- on a third-inning homer by Whit Merrifield -- across his three innings, but that was enough to saddle him with the loss. It was nonetheless a promising outing for the left-hander, who entered the contest having given up five earned runs over seven frames on the season.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Summoned to majors

    The Rangers recalled Allard from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Texas sent outfielder Zach Reks to Round Rock to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Allard. The 24-year-old southpaw previously made four appearances out of the Rangers bullpen earlier this season, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and two walks over seven innings.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Loses out on roster spot

    The Rangers optioned Allard to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

    The lefty reliever will cede his spot on the active roster to catcher Jonah Heim, who was reinstated from the paternity list ahead of Sunday's game against Atlanta. Allard was largely been limited to low-leverage work out of the bullpen during the first month of the season, making four appearances while giving up five earned runs on seven hits and two walks across seven frames.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Throws two scoreless

    Allard allowed one hit and two walks while striking out two over two scoreless innings in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Allard pitched for the first time in nine days, a stretch that may have given him time to clean up the issues that resulted in him giving up five runs and two home runs allowed over 1.1 innings April 15. He was one of several relievers to throw Sunday, as the Rangers eased starter Spencer Howard off the injured list and needed length from the bullpen. Multiple innings will be the norm for Allard, who may also draw a spot start or piggyback on another pitcher on occasion.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Hammered in relief

    Allard (0-1) allowed five runs on five hits over 1.1 innings Friday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Angels.

    He entered the game after Matt Bush and Albert Abreu. After tossing a scoreless fourth inning, things fell apart for Allard in the fifth as he coughed up five straight hits, including home runs by Kurt Suzuki, Shohei Ohtani and Jared Walsh. It was Allard's second appearance of the season after tossing a scoreless inning April 12 against Colorado.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Makes Opening Day roster

    The Rangers informed Allard on Sunday that he'll be included on the Opening Day roster, independent baseball journalist Jeff Wilson reports.

    Allard is expected to serve as a bulk-relief or multi-inning option for the Rangers after he was most commonly deployed as a traditional starter over parts of his first three big-league seasons in Texas. The southpaw has made two Cactus League appearances for the Rangers, working five innings in total and giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out six.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Enters after opener

    Allard allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out three over three innings in Friday's spring training game against the Giants.

    Allard entered in the second inning following opener Dennis Santana in what was the left-hander's second Cactus League appearance. His first appearance was as a traditional starter, but at this point, Allard is not expected to be part of the rotation that opens the season. He'll stay stretched out and be able to pitch long relief, spot start or serve as the bulk-innings hurler if the Rangers play around with openers in 2022.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Pounds zone in spring debut

    Allard did not allow a hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring training start against the Diamondbacks.

    Allard made his Cactus League debut as a starter and pounded the strike zone to the tune of 17 strikes among his 25 pitches. It's not certain the lefty will be a starter in 2022, but he was used as both a starter and reliever in 2021, often throwing multiple innings in a piggyback, bulk-inning role. Allard showed promise when he first entered the rotation last season, but a 10-start stretch in July and August, during which he yielded a 6.54 ERA, sent him back to the bullpen. The Rangers have several pitchers they'll try in the rotation ahead of Allard, who will build up innings as insurance and could be a multi-inning reliever when the regular season begins.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Throws bulk innings Tuesday

    Allard allowed five runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over 4.1 relief innings in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Yankees.

    Allard made a second consecutive outing as a piggyback starter, this one behind Dane Dunning, and suffered a similar fate as he did when following Glenn Otto on Sept. 16. The left-hander has allowed 10 runs on 11 hits (three home runs) and five walks over eight innings in his two piggyback appearances. With two additional long balls, Allard has served up 28 home runs over 119.2 innings (2.1 HR/9).

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Returning Thursday

    Allard (illness) will piggyback starter Glenn Otto in Thursday's game against the Astros, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. He missed his previous start due to a non-COVID illness.

    It's unclear how the innings will break down between the two pitchers, or if Allard will get another start -- traditional or piggyback -- this season. As a starter, Allard has a 5.40 ERA and 2.3 HR/9 over 91.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Scratched Saturday with illness

    Allard was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against Oakland due to an illness.

    Wes Benjamin will start in what will amount to a bullpen game. It's unclear when Allard will be ready to return to the rotation.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Efficient in loss

    Allard (3-12) took the loss in Saturday's 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Angels, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Allard was efficient Saturday, needing just 82 pitches to navigate 5.2 innings, but he was stung by the long ball and his team's dormant bats. The 24-year-old was engaged in a heated pitcher's duel with Los Angeles starter Jose Suarez until Shohei Ohtani tagged Allard for a three-run home run in the sixth inning to make it a 4-0 game. Even though he took another loss, Allard has shown signs of improvement in the season's second half as he's averaged six innings per start over his last six turns. He'll look to keep it going against Oakland next weekend.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Toppled by Astros

    Allard (3-11) gave up five runs on eight hits and three walks over six innings Saturday, taking the loss against Houston. He struck out a pair.

    The 24-year-old had opened August with four straight quality starts before running into the highest-scoring offense in the majors Saturday. Yordan Alvarez and Martin Maldonado got things started in the second inning with a solo homer and a two-run single, respectively. Carlos Correa added a solo blast in the third, and Jose Altuve drove in two more with a single in the sixth. Allard has been able to provide the Rangers with length recently, pitching into the sixth in five straight appearances, but it's still come with too many homers (nine in 30.1 innings) and subpar strikeout numbers (16). He'll take a 5.01 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into his next scheduled start.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Quality start streak at four

    Allard didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 8-4 extra-innings loss to the Red Sox, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out five.

    The southpaw battled through 89 pitches (55 strikes) to deliver his fourth straight quality start and sixth of the season, but Allard exited the game on the hook for his 11th loss of the year until Texas rallied in the top of the ninth inning. The 24-year-old will carry a 4.86 ERA and 84:21 K:BB through 100 innings into his next outing.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Rangers-Red Sox postponed

    Allard and the Rangers won't face the Red Sox on Sunday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    With Hurricane Henri expected to make landfall in Long Island or Southern New England on Sunday, the Red Sox opted to postpone the contest out of an abundance of caution. The two teams are scheduled to make up the game Monday at 1:10 p.m. ET, weather permitting. Allard, who was scheduled to start Sunday, will presumably be pushed back one day in the pitching schedule to take the hill for Texas in the series finale.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Earns third win

    Allard (3-10) allowed three runs on seven hits while walking none and striking out two over 6.1 innings to pick up the win over Oakland on Sunday.

    Allard survived giving up a couple of home runs to pick up his first win since June 12. The long ball has been issue for the left-hander, who's allowed 12 over his last 36.2 innings (2.9 HR/9). Sunday's outing was his third consecutive quality start, and Allard looks to extend that run in his next expected start Saturday on the road against the Red Sox.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Ends losing streak

    Allard got a no-decision during Tuesday's 5-4 triumph over Seattle, allowing two runs on six hits with four strikeouts in six innings.

    Allard avoided danger aside from back-to-back solo blasts by Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager to lead off the fourth. The 23-year-old lefty had lost eight straight starts prior to Tuesday's no-decision, though he's now posted consecutive quality starts while allowing four runs across 12 innings in that span. He'll look to get in the win column in his next start, tentatively scheduled for Sunday against Oakland.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Rebounds but still takes loss

    Allard (2-10) allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three across six innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Angels.

    Allard had allowed no fewer than four runs in each of his last five outings, including surrendering a combined 13 earned runs across his last seven innings. He avoided another disastrous outing, limiting the Angels to a solo home run as the primary damage against him. Even so, Allard was charged with the loss for his eighth consecutive outing. He now owns a 5.07 ERA with a 73:18 K:BB across 81.2 frames on the campaign.

  • Rangers' Kolby Allard: Yields seven runs again

    Allard (2-9) allowed seven runs (six earned) on six hits and three walks over three innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Mariners.

    Allard coughed up four runs in the second inning, including a pair after an error by Isiah Kiner-Falefa. He then served up a three-run blast to Jarred Kelenic the following inning. The 6-foot-1 lefty has now taken the loss in seven straight starts, allowing 31 earned runs through 35.2 innings (7.82 ERA) during that span. For the year, his ERA jumped up to 5.23 alongside a 70:18 K:BB. Allard is currently projected to face the Angels at home next week.
