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. Sep 23 - 1:27 AM

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.

Aug 12 - 9:34 PM

Cody Allen suffered his third blown save of the season in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Rockies.

Allen gave up a one-out single to Carlos Gonzalez and then an RBI double to Jonathan Lucroy, although he wasn't helped by a bit of a misplay in center field by Bradley Zimmer, who slide after Lucroy's gapper and kicked it. If he hadn't done that, CarGo probably would've been held at third base. Allen has now blown back-to-back save chances.
Aug 9 - 4:27 PM

Cody Allen gave up three runs in the ninth to take a blown save and a loss Tuesday against the Red Sox.

The Indians had just four blown saves all season until getting charged with two tonight. Andrew Miller was also stuck with one after giving up a run as part of a four-run sixth. Allen dropped to 0-6 with the loss, but he still has just two blown saves in his role as closer. There's no reason for the Indians to go back to Miller in the ninth, though Terry Francona could always make the move for workload reasons if he deems it necessary.

Cody Allen struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning Monday as the Indians defeated the Reds.

Jul 24 - 9:49 PM

Cody Allen was knocked around for a run and four hits in just two-thirds of an inning in a loss in the 10th on Tuesday in San Francisco.

Allen's record slipped to 0-5 out of the bullpen. He threw 15 of his 22 pitches for strikes, and perhaps that was his biggest issue - location. Allen was leaving his pitches right over the plate and the Giants were hitting him hard, including the game-winning single by Eduardo Nunez.
