Cody Allen struck out one in a scoreless frame Tuesday versus the Tigers to record his third save of the season.

On to hold a one-run lead, Allen induced a groundout and flyout to go along with his punchout. Andrew Miller notched a save Monday with Allen unavailable, but the former set up for the latter in this one. Allen hasn't allowed a run and permitted just three baserunners over his first six innings.

Cody Allen got the win for the Indians on Sunday by firing a scoreless ninth inning against the Royals.

Allen didn't allow a hit, and he struck out two. It's the first win of the year for the right-hander to go along with his two saves, and he has yet to allow a run in the young 2018 season.
Apr 8 - 4:17 PM

Cody Allen slammed the door on the Royals in the ninth inning on Friday, preserving a one-run lead to earn his second save of the season.

Just as manager Terry Francona drew it up in the preseason, he got six strong innings out of his starter in this one, then turned it over to the trio of Nick Goody, Andrew Miller and Allen, each of whom worked a scoreless inning. Allen has yet to allow a run in four innings of work to begin the 2018 season.
Apr 6 - 7:13 PM

Cody Allen successfully converted his first save chance of the season by turning in a perfect inning against the Mariners on Saturday.

He recorded one strikeout without allowing any baserunners. Allen might not be the best pitcher in the Indians' bullpen (Andrew Miller says "Hi") but he will once again serve as the closer for manager Terry Francona. He was 30-for-34 in save opportunities last year to go with a 2.94 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 67 1/3 innings.
Mar 31 - 7:56 PM

Indians and RHP Cody Allen avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.575 million contract.

It was Allen's third year of arbitration eligibility and the Cleveland closer receives a sizable raise from his 2017 salary of $7.35 million. The 29-year-old has saved 30 games or more in each of the last three seasons for the Indians, and last year he registered a 2.94 ERA along with 92 strikeouts in 67 1/3 innings. He'll once again be Cleveland's primary ninth-inning man in 2018, with an even more lucrative first foray into free agency potentially looming next winter.
Jan 10 - 9:05 PM

Cody Allen notched his 30th save on the final day of the regular season Sunday with a scoreless ninth inning against the White Sox..

Allen retired all three batters he faced, two via strikeout, to seal a 4-2 victory for Cleveland. The 28-year-old closer boasts a 2.81 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 86/21 K/BB ratio in 64 innings this season.

Cody Allen, who admitted to some arm soreness earlier in the week, gave up a single and a homer to the only two batters he faced to lose Friday's game against the Mariners.

The Indians only revealed Allen's soreness today after he was surprisingly held out of a second straight game Thursday. In light of his performance tonight, it should be viewed as a serious concern now. Either Andrew Miller or Bryan Shaw could be asked to close tomorrow.

Cody Allen was given another day off on Thursday, allowing Tyler Olson to pick up a save in a three-run game against the Angels.

It was no surprise to see Allen held out Wednesday, but today's absence was disappointing and might be a reason for concern, even though Terry Francona indicated afterwards that it was just a day off. Allen did pitch four times in six days before getting the last two days off. Andrew Miller worked the seventh tonight, as the Indians continue to structure his workload with the goal of getting him ready for October.

Cody Allen struck out two in a perfect ninth inning on Sunday, recording his 26th save of the season.

Allen was tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the ninth inning against the heart of the Orioles lineup and carved them up without issue. Allen fanned Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones before getting Trey Mancini on a line out to right. The right-hander boasts a 2.61 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 79/20 K/BB ratio on the year.

Cody Allen worked a perfect 10-pitch ninth inning Saturday against the Orioles to secure his 25th save of the season.

Allen has experienced a few hiccups since the start of August, blowing three of his past nine save chances. However, he has been solid over his past three opportunities to get the job done. He'll look to build on Saturday's appearance, his first clean appearance since Aug. 30.
