Rangers' Cody Allen: Throws sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (elbow, forearm) threw 12 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Allen experienced soreness in his elbow and forearm and was shut down for a week before resurfacing Tuesday. His next scheduled start is a split squad game Thursday against the Cubs. Allen was Cleveland's closer from 2013 to 2017, and the Rangers hope he regains that form, which would give manager Chris Woodward options at the back end of the bullpen.

Rangers' Cody Allen: Dealing with forearm, elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was shut down over the past week due to forearm and elbow stiffness, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Following a week of inactivity, Allen is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated game Tuesday. "The elbow was barking pretty good after that last game," Allen said. "We're playing it slow. It's still early. A simulated game [Tuesday]. It's feeling pretty good, so hopefully we still have a good amount of time left." The Rangers have another three weeks to go before their final spring training game March 23, which should give him enough time to be ready for the regular season. Allen allowed three runs on two hits and a walk over one inning in his lone spring appearance.

Rangers' Cody Allen: Gets camp invite from Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen joined the Rangers as a non-roster invitee Friday.

Allen owns a career 3.14 ERA and 153 saves, far better numbers than are typically available from a player on a minor-league deal. The 31-year-old is available for cheap because his career has taken a significant turn for the worse in recent seasons, as his ERA slipped to 4.70 in 2018 and fell off a cliff to 6.26 in 23 innings last season. His command evaporated, as he walked 17.2 percent of opposing batters, and his 92.3 mph fastball was down two full ticks from just two seasons prior. It will take a major bounceback for him to find his way to a fantasy-relevant role this season.

Cody Allen: Working to improve velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen has been working on improving his velocity, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 30-year-old reliever is training at The Ranch in Tampa Bay -- the same place where starting pitchers Justin Verlander, Jake Odorizzi and Kyle Gibson have had success working out. It has been rumored that Allen is showing improvements. The veteran owns a career 3.14 ERA and 11.51 K/9 that make him a potential target to teams looking for a right-handed bullpen arm with playoff experience.

Cody Allen: Let go by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was released by the Twins on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

Allen signed with the Twins on a minor-league deal June 22 and returns to free agency after five weeks with the organization. The 30-year-old had a 3.38 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 7:5 K:BB with Triple-A Rochester, but he gave up three runs (one earned) on three hits during his final outing. Allen began the season as the Angels closer but is now once again looking for a new team.

Twins' Cody Allen: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was placed on the minor-league paternity list Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Allen will spend up to three days away from Triple-A Rochester. The right-hander struck out one across a scoreless inning for the Red Wings his last time out.

Twins' Cody Allen: Heading to Minnesota on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will sign a minor-league deal with the Twins on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Allen was released by the Angels on Tuesday after posting a 6.26 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 29:20 K:BB over 25 appearances, only six months into the one-year, $8.5 million contract he signed during the offseason. The low-risk signing makes sense for the Twins given the 4.47 ERA and 1.43 WHIP from their bullpen. According to Dan Hayes of The Athletic, there's no definitive timeline for Allen to move to the majors, but the team does have some ideas to help turn his season around.

Cody Allen: Cut loose by Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was released by the Angels on Tuesday.

Allen was designated for assignment Saturday, and after failing to draw interest while on the waiver wire, the Angels have requested unconditional release waivers on the right-hander. He posted a 6.26 ERA and 1.91 WHIP with a 29:20 K:BB over 23 innings this season with Los Angeles.

Angels' Cody Allen: Cast off 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was designated for assignment Saturday.

The Halos signed the former closer to a one-year $8.5 million contract during the offseason but are already ready to cut their losses if another team is willing to claim him. He'll likely pass through waivers and be outrighted to Triple-A. Taylor Cole was recalled in a corresponding move.

Angels' Cody Allen: Roughed up in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was charged with two runs on two hits and retired one batter in his relief appearance in Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Mariners.

The Angels were only trailing 2-1 when Allen entered the contest in the top of the fifth. Allen stranded a runner at third by striking out Domingo Santana to end the inning, but couldn't carry that success over to the top of the sixth. He surrendered back-to-back long balls to Edwin Encarnacion and Dan Vogelbach before being pulled in favor of Nick Tropeano, who yielded another run for good measure. Since returning from the 10-day injured list May 7, Allen has posted a 4.05 ERA and 1.57 WHIP while serving up five home runs in 13.1 innings. Those underwhelming numbers make it unlikely that he resurfaces as a closer candidate for the Angels anytime soon.

Angels' Cody Allen: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Allen had lost his closing role just days before landing on the injured list, and it appears as though he'll have to work his way back into the ninth inning. Chris Stratton was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Angels' Cody Allen: Expected back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brad Ausmus said he expects Allen (back) to return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

Allen experienced no complications while completing a bullpen session Saturday, so it appears he'll be ready to come off the IL in the minimum amount of time. Prior to getting shut down, Allen was removed as the Angels' closer following his poor start to the season. The Angels haven't given up on Allen eventually recapturing the job, but Ausmus suggested that the veteran wouldn't immediately get reinstated as the ninth-inning man, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. Hansel Robles and Ty Buttrey still look like the best bets for saves among the Los Angeles relievers.

Angels' Cody Allen: Scheduled for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Allen landed on the injured list a week ago with a back injury but is reportedly feeling better already. Depending on how Saturday's mound session goes, it sounds like Allen could be ready to return shortly after first eligible, with Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reporting the veteran right-hander could play as soon as the team's upcoming series in Detroit, which begins Tuesday and runs through Thursday. Allen was removed as closer prior to landing on the shelf, so he figures to assume a setup role upon his return.

Angels' Cody Allen: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was placed on the 10-day injured list with a back injury, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Allen had just been removed from the closer job Wednesday, but the issue now appears to be as much about injury as performance. The veteran got through his first five outings of the season without allowing a hit, let alone a run, but he has a 13.50 ERA and a 4.00 WHIP over his last six appearances. The unspecified back injury may be partly to blame for that sudden loss of form. It's not yet clear who is expected to replace him as closer, nor is it clear how much time he's expected to miss.

Angels' Cody Allen: Removed as closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen has been removed as the Angels' closer, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Manager Brad Ausmus was not specific in who would replace Allen. He said that they'd use "some other guys" while trying to fix Allen. Allen has a 5.40 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 9:7 K:BB over 8.1 innings.

Angels' Cody Allen: Gets vote of confidence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed a two-run homer to Mitch Haniger prior to being pulled from Sunday's game against the Mariners without recording an out. After the game, manager Brad Ausmus said he isn't worried about Allen, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Allen was called upon to close out the game but was pulled without recording an out. While he was only charged with one earned run, this outing was the latest in a series of struggles for Allen, as he's allowed at least one run in four consecutive appearances. For now, he remains the Angels closer.

Angels' Cody Allen: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (0-2) allowed two solo home runs and a walk while failing to record an out in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

Allen allowed back-to-back homers to Tim Beckham and Omar Narvaez, and this comes on the heels of Allen giving up a run on two hits and a walk in the series opener Thursday. The right-hander got off to a strong start with his new club, and he still hasn't blown a save chance, but these recent shaky performances from Allen give setup man Ty Buttrey (0.00 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 12:1 K:BB) added appeal as a speculative pickup.

Angels' Cody Allen: Posts four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed a run but recorded a four-out save with three strikeouts to post his fourth save of the year in a 6-5 victory against the Cubs on Saturday.

That was the first run Allen has allowed all year, and fortunately for him, he entered with a two-run lead. Allen stranded two inherited runners in the eighth and then left two more on in the ninth. Allen is 4-for-4 in save opportunities with a 1.42 ERA, 0.47 WHIP and seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

Angels' Cody Allen: Nails down third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his third save of the season in an 11-8 win over the Brewers.

The right-hander is now 3-for-3 in converting save opportunities with a 0.00 ERA and 4:1 K:BB in five innings. Allen is coming off an erratic 2018, but at least for the first couple of weeks of this season, he's providing the Angels with some stability at the back of their bullpen.

Angels' Cody Allen: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen worked a perfect ninth inning Monday to record his second save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Brewers.

The right-hander got a little bit lucky -- Jesus Aguilar and Yasmani Grandal both hit the ball hard but right at someone -- but Allen still has yet to give up a hit, much less a run, through four innings. Despite the early statistical success, however, his fastball remains subdued at 91-92 mph. While Allen can still generate whiffs with his knuckle-curve, his increasingly hittable heater is likely to cause him problems moving forward.
