Allard allowed one hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 7-0 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Allard had a rough go of it as a starter as he attempted to fill the rotation slot of Corey Kluber (shoulder). He eventually moved to the bullpen after pitching to an 8.80 ERA over eight starts. In two relief outings, the left-hander has thrown three scoreless innings with one hit, one walk and two strikeouts. With the Rangers seemingly looking to reshape the roster, Allard will be in the mix for a rotation spot in 2021.
Allard will work out of the Rangers' bullpen moving forward, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Allard struggled mightily in his last start as he earned his sixth loss of the season. He failed to pick up any wins while working out of the rotation, and he'll transition to a bullpen role for the remainder of the year. Wes Benjamin will take over his spot in the starting rotation in the immediate future.
Allard (0-6) allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out one across one inning to take the loss in the second game of the team's doubleheader Saturday against the Athletics.
Allard worked through a scoreless first inning but failed to retire any of the six batters he faced to start the second frame. He's now been crushed in both of his last two outings, surrendering a combined 13 earned runs across 4.2 innings. Allard is currently projected to take his next turn through the rotation Friday against the Angels, though it's unclear if the Rangers will stick with him as a starter.
Allard is the scheduled starter for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader at home against Oakland.
Allard's overall numbers are not pretty, but his two starts at Globe Life Field have gone well. He has a 1.74 ERA in two starts at home, including taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Athletics on Aug. 26.
Allard (0-5) took the loss Monday as the Rangers fell 8-4 to the Mariners, coughing up eight runs on five hits and four walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out five.
After delivering a quality start in his last outing, Allard took a huge step backwards with his worst performance of the year. Two of the hits off him left the yard, doubling the number of homers he's served up this season, and the rough night tacked nearly two full runs onto his ERA. He'll carry a 7.22 ERA and 28:16 K:BB through 28.2 innings into his next start Saturday as part of a home doubleheader against the A's.
Allard (0-4) was charged with the loss against the Astros on Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits and a pair of walks while striking out four across seven innings.
After surrendering an early two-run homer to Michael Brantley in the first inning, Allard prevented any additional damage, stretching his outing to the longest of the season. Once again, the southpaw showed a glimmer of potential. During his last outing against the A's, Allard took a no-hitter into the sixth before giving up two runs. Despite the improved performance, the 23-year-old remains winless on the season. He'll look to bounce back Monday at Seattle.
Allard (0-3) allowed two runs on one hit and four walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings in a loss to the A's on Wednesday.
Allard was coming off two poor outings and manager Chris Woodward was contemplating turning elsewhere for Wednesday's start. The skipper gave the ball to Allard in the end and Allard was effectively wild -- just not effective enough to earn his first win of the season. Allard is missing bats at a decent clip and the estimators says he's been rather unlucky, but the team is bad, and he simply has not flashed the upside to warrant taking on the risk in mixed leagues. He lines up for a road start in Houston next week and potentially a second start at Seattle.
Texas manager Chris Woodward would not commit to Allard starting Wednesday against Oakland, Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Allard has allowed 10 runs over the last 3.2 innings and didn't make it out of the first inning in his last start. When asked about Wednesday's starter, Woodward said, "we'll have to wait until after [Tuesday's] game, just to see where we stand pitching wise." That means if certain pitchers are not needed, there's a chance one of them could replace Allard. The most likely candidates are Wes Benjamin and Taylor Hearn, neither of whom pitched in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.
Allard (0-2) was charged with the loss against the Mariners on Friday, surrendering four runs on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out one and recording only two outs.
It was a disaster of an outing for Allard, who failed to escape the first inning. It took the southpaw 38 pitches to record two outs before he was finally replaced with Wes Benjamin. His performance was especially disappointing after allowing six runs in three innings against the Rockies his last time out. Allard now owns a forgettable 7.82 ERA and 1.82 WHIP and will look to rebound Wednesday against Oakland.
Allard (0-1) allowed six earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four across three innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rockies.
Allard struck out the side in the first inning and looked in command. However, things quickly took a turn for the worst in the second frame, as he allowed a three-run home run and subsequently allowed two more runs to cross the plate. Allard showed glimpses of promise, generating 10 swinging strikes in 65 pitches. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently projected to come Friday at Seattle.
Allard didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 2-0 win over the Angels, allowing two hits and a walk over five scoreless innings. He struck out six.
After David Fletcher greeted him with a leadoff double to begin the game, Allard settled in and retired 10 straight batters before issuing a free pass to Anthony Rendon in the fourth inning. The 22-year-old southpaw has been sharp since moving into the rotation, posting a 1.00 ERA and 9:3 K:BB through nine innings in his two starts, but Allard will face a tough task in his next outing Friday -- a road start in Coors Field.
Allard yielded one run on two hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out three batters in the win over San Francisco. He did not factor in the decision.
Allard wasn't incredibly impressive or efficient Sunday -- he needed 75 pitches to complete four innings -- but he got the job done. The lone run he allowed came on an Evan Longoria sacrifice fly in the second inning. Assuming Allard keeps his spot in the Rangers rotation, he'll get a home start against the Angels on Saturday.
Allard will replace Corey Kluber (shoulder) in the Texas rotation and make his first start Sunday in San Francisco.
Due to off days Thursday and next Monday, the Rangers could have waited until Aug. 8 against the Angels to break in a new fifth starter to replace Kluber, but Allard will get the opportunity to join the rotation this weekend. While Allard draws a favorable matchup against a poor Giants offense at the pitcher-friendly Oracle Park, his fantasy profile isn't an especially interesting one. At this stage of his career, Allard excels more at inducing weak contact than he does making bats miss, as evidenced by a meager 7.3 swinging-strike percentage through 53.1 career MLB innings.
Allard will replace Corey Kluber (shoulder) in the rotation, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The Rangers were dealt a blow Sunday when Kluber was diagnosed with a torn teres major muscle in the back of his right shoulder. He's been shut down for four weeks, which means he might not pitch again for six weeks. Allard, a former first-round draft pick, took a regular turn in the Rangers' rotation over the final two months of 2019 with mixed results. The left-hander was stretched out as a starter during summer camp, but it's unclear how many innings he'll be ready for the first time out. The Rangers have a few days off early in the season and will not need a fifth starter until Aug. 8.
Allard allowed an unearned run on three hits and one walk while striking out five over four innings in Saturday's intrasquad game, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Allard showed vast improvement relative to his first outing, when he walked five and fanned two. With news that the Rangers may skip No. 5 starter Jordan Lyles the first time through the rotation, Allard stands as a potential replacement. He and Joe Palumbo are the first options when the Rangers need a depth starter.
Allard and Joe Palumbo will serve as a depth starters for the Rangers, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Allard had been assigned to Triple-A Nashville during spring training but was always expected to be on the short list of callups if an injury felled one of the Rangers' starters. Without a minor-league season in place, Allard is expected to be on the expanded roster or the taxi squad.
Allard was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
The Rangers didn't appear to have an open spot in the rotation after bringing in Corey Kluber, Jordan Lyles and Kyle Gibson over the winter. This news means Allard will remain stretched out as a starter in the minors rather than pitching in the big-league bullpen.
Allard is scheduled to start the Rangers' Cactus League opener Friday versus the Royals, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
The Rangers will have some of their lesser-experienced rotation candidates make starts early in the spring schedule, with Allard set to be followed in the pitching order by Luke Farrell on Saturday and Joe Palumbo on Sunday. Allard received a late-season look in the Texas rotation and delivered an underwhelming 4.96 ERA across his nine starts in 2019, though he excelled at keeping the ball in the yard and limiting hard contact. Even so, Allard's odds of breaking camp as a member of the Rangers' staff don't appear favorable after the team added three established starting options in Corey Kluber, Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles over the winter.
Allard (4-2) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on six hits and a walk over three innings as the Rangers were routed 10-3 by the Red Sox. He struck out one.
The 22-year-old has logged a couple of good outings for Texas after the trade that brought him over from Atlanta, but Allard finishes his first prolonged stint in the majors with a 4.96 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 33:19 K:BB through 45.1 innings. The Rangers will be counting on the young southpaw to take a big step forward in 2020.
Allard (4-1) gave up two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two through five innings to take the loss against the Astros on Wednesday.
A 2:4 K:BB does not jump off the page, but Allard fired four scoreless innings before giving up a two-run home run in his final frame. The 22-year-old has a 4.25 ERA with 32 strikeouts through eight starts this season. Allard is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Red Sox at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
