Allard (2-0) picked up the win Saturday, giving up six hits over 6.1 scoreless innings while striking out a career-high eight in a 4-0 victory over the White Sox.
Chicago hitters couldn't make any kind of hard contact against Allard, as all six hits he allowed were singles -- and three of them didn't even leave the infield. The rookie will take a 4.64 ERA and 23:8 K:BB through 21.1 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Mariners.
Allard threw five innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Monday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits over five innings, striking out three and walking two as the Rangers picked up an 8-7 extra-innings victory.
Allard picked up his first big-league win in his last start, but he couldn't keep it rolling, as the Angels blasted him for five of their seven runs in the first inning to ruin any chance he had of salvaging his stat line. He's now yielded 11 earned runs in his 15 innings with the Rangers to leave him with a 6.60 ERA ahead of his next start, which is tabbed for a Saturday road matchup against the White Sox.
Allard (1-0) allowed three runs on four hits with three walks and five strikeouts across 5.2 innings to earn his first victory against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
He fell an out short of a quality start, but he won his first career major-league game. Allard pitched well in his first start last week, but he settled for the no-decision partially because he didn't last five innings. Allard is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 10 innings across two starts this season. He's more valuable in dynasty leagues, but Allard is worth keeping an eye on in all formats moving forward. He will face the Angels next at home Monday.
Allard is listed as the Rangers' probable pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.
As anticipated, Allard will be granted a second turn through the rotation, despite working only 4.1 innings and giving up two runs on three hits and three walks in his Rangers debut in Milwaukee over the weekend. The 22-year-old lefty has lost some prospect cachet after once being one of the more heralded young pitchers in the Braves organization, but he'll have a longer leash to prove himself at the big-league level with Texas than would have been possible in Atlanta.
Allard didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Brewers, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks over 4.1 innings while striking out seven.
The strikeouts are encouraging, as was the fact that he didn't serve up any home runs in a tough venue at Miller Park, but Allard's debut with Texas wasn't exactly dazzling -- the young lefty threw only 57 of 93 pitches for strikes and exited the game in line for a loss. The performance was likely good enough to keep him in the rotation, though, and Allard will line up to make his next start Wednesday in Toronto.
Allard was called up to start Friday's game at Milwaukee.
Allard was acquired by the Rangers before the July trade deadline and won't have to wait long to debut with his new team. The 21-year-old had a rough three-game stint with the Braves during his first taste of the majors in 2018 and has a 3.99 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 106:38 K:BB over 115 innings at Triple-A this season.
Allard will be called up to start against the Brewers on Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Allard didn't look good in his first taste of the big leagues last year in Atlanta, allowing 12 runs (11 earned) in eight innings while posting a 3:4 K:BB. He's still just 21 years old, though, and comes with a fair amount of prospect pedigree. He's not a particularly high strikeout guy, recording a decent but unexciting 21.9 percent strikeout rate en route to a 3.99 ERA in 21 Triple-A starts this season, so he'll have to work to keep the ball in the yard at hitter-friendly Miller Park as well as any upcoming starts at his new home in Texas.
Allard is expected to get an audition in the Rangers' rotation this season, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Allard was acquired from the Braves on Tuesday for reliever Chris Martin (back). He's started 39 times (222.1 innings) at Triple-A Gwinnett over the last two seasons, so an audition at the big-league level is the next step for the left-hander. "He's a young starter who already has significant experience at the upper levels," general manager Jon Daniels said. "His reputation as a competitor is well-known. We look forward to watching him compete as a Ranger." If the Rangers end up dealing Mike Minor, we could see Allard pitch for Texas as soon as next week.

Allard posted a 2.72 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in his first taste of Triple-A last season, but he's had a more difficult time in 2019 with a 4.17 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 98:36 K:BB. The 21-year-old made his major-league debut last season and surrendered 11 runs on 19 hits over three outings, including one start.
Allard tossed his fourth straight quality start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, giving up one run on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five.
The 21-year-old lefty hasn't been dominant this year, but Allard now has a 3.75 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 68:29 K:BB through 84 innings. He's been passed up on the Atlanta depth chart by a number of other prospects since being drafted in the first round in 2015, but after making his big-league debut in 2018, he could still factor into the team's plans after the All-Star break if injuries hit the rotation. Per Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Allard could be a candidate to join the big club to make a spot start as soon as Friday against the Mets, in the event Mike Soroka (forearm) needs to be pushed back an additional day or two. Along with Allard, Bryse Wilson and Kyle Wright will also merit consideration if another arm needs to be added to the rotation this week.
The Braves optioned Allard to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Allard doesn't have much more to prove in the minors after posting a 2.72 ERA across 19 starts at Gwinnett in 2018, but the young southpaw might not get a look in the big leagues anytime soon with fellow pitching prospects Kyle Wright, Touki Toussaint and Bryse Wilson seemingly passing him up in the organizational pecking order. The 21-year-old's road back to Atlanta will become even more difficult once Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) and Mike Soroka (shoulder) are reinstated from the injured list.
Allard was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Allard will rejoin the big-league club after being shuttled back and forth from Atlanta to Gwinnett throughout the past month. Across three appearances (one start) with the Braves this year, Allard has allowed 11 earned runs on 19 hits and four walks in eight innings of work. There's a chance that he could make a spot start, especially with Anibal Sanchez nursing a hamstring injury, but it's likely that the team will utilize him as a bullpen arm for the final month of the season.
The Braves optioned Allard to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Allard rejoined the Braves last week but made just one appearance during his latest stint with the big club, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk over an inning of relief Friday against the Rockies. He'll presumably rejoin the Gwinnett rotation with the Braves reinstating Sam Freeman (shoulder) from the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move.
Allard was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.
Allard has made two appearances (one start) with the Braves this year and has allowed nine runs (eight earned) on fifteen hits over seven innings. The left-hander -- who turns 21 next week -- will likely serve as a low-leverage or long-relief option for Atlanta.
The Braves optioned Allard to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Allard will head back to the minors after serving as the 26th man in the Braves' doubleheader against the Nationals. He worked out of the bullpen in the first game and gave up four runs over two innings, but could rejoin the Braves in a starting role as soon as next week. The Braves have another twin bill lined up against the Marlins on Monday and are short on healthy starting candidates beyond Allard with Max Fried (groin) recently joining Brandon McCarthy (knee) and Mike Soroka (shoulder) on the disabled list.
Allard is up with the Braves as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Allard has appeared once for the Braves this season as a starter. If he gets into a game this time around, it will likely be in a long-relief capacity if Max Fried or Sean Newcomb gets knocked out early.
Allard was optioned back to Triple-A Gwinnett following Tuesday's start.
As expected following the acquisition of Kevin Gausman on Tuesday, Allard will return to the minor-league level. During his major-league debut against the Marlins on Tuesday, Allard allowed four earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out one across five innings. In a corresponding move, Wes Parsons was recalled from the minors.
Allard (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Braves after allowing five runs (four earned) on nine hits and two walks across five innings. He recorded one strikeout.
Allard allowed a pair of runs in the second inning before yielding a solo home run to J.T. Realmuto in the fifth. He came back out for the sixth with a healthy lead, but he was pulled from the game after allowing three straight singles while the visitors plated another pair. The youngster posted excellent numbers with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, but this wasn't quite the big-league debut the club was hoping for. With Kevin Gausman joining the Braves at the trade deadline, Allard appears likely to head back down after this spot start.
Allard was officially called up for his MLB debut Tuesday against the Marlins.
As expected, the 20-year-old lefty will get his chance to shine after posting an excellent 2.80 ERA for Triple-A Gwinnett. Allard's future with the Braves is unclear, but there's a chance he makes just a single start for Atlanta before returning to Gwinnett to await his next opportunity.
Allard is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett and make his MLB debut Tuesday against the Marlins, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.
The 20-year-old was scratched from his scheduled start at Gwinnett over the weekend, fueling speculation that a promotion was imminent. While it appears Allard will indeed move up to the big club, he'll likely need to perform well out of the gate in order to secure a rotation spot throughout the second half. It's unclear if the Braves intend on bumping any of their current five starters to the bullpen to make room for Allard, as manager Brian Snitker could opt to roll with a six-man staff in the short term. That kind of rotation setup may prove beneficial to young arms like Mike Foltynewicz, Max Fried and Sean Newcomb, all of whom are on pace to throw the most innings of their respective careers.
