CODY ALLEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Louis Head the Next Indians Relief Ace?

It seems almost every season another rookie reliever comes out of nowhere to make an incredible break through into the Indians bullpen. Last season it was left hander Kyle Crockett, the year before it was Cody Allen and before that Vinnie Pestano and the list goes on. While the current bullpen seems set with depth, there is always room for more when one pitcher or another gets hurt...

Making the Right Trade a Challenge as Indians Enter Winter Meetings

This morning the Winter Meetings open in San Diego, and according to Buster Olney, the Indians are looking to make a deal. Trades are tough to make, but may be even tougher for the Indians. Financially strapped with an approximate $85 million payroll threshold for 2015 and escalating contracts for 2016, General Manager Chris Antonetti is faced with trying to improve a roster that...

Today in Tribe History: November 20, 1988

Cleveland Indians reliever Cody Allen is born in Orlando, Florida. The Indians’ 23rd round pick in the 2011 amateur draft debuted just one year, one month, and five days after signing with the club after skyrocketing through the minor league system. After earning a 3.72 ERA in 27 games in his debut year of 2012, he improved to 6-1 with a 2.43 ERA in 77 games in 2013. Last season...

Should the Indians Extend Cody Allen?

To begin, reliever extensions almost never work out and closers even less often, but Winter is coming and rumors are abound. The general reasoning behind not keeping relievers around for a long time is that they benefit greatly from the unknown. There are so many minor league relievers that teams cannot focus scouts on each one and often, when they do make it to the Majors, as Kyle...

Is Now the Time to Extend Cody Allen?

Last offseason, the Cleveland Indians made it clear their intent to lock up the young talent on the team. The moves, which inked left fielder Michael Brantley, catcher Yan Gomes, and second baseman Jason Kipnis to contract extensions that bought out several years of salary arbitration, secured three pieces of the Tribe’s future at club-friendly rates. So far this offseason, the...

Cody Allen taking hold of the Closer role

The closer role in the bullpen has always been a bit of a flux situation for the Cleveland Indians. From the days of Bob Wickman, to Joe Borowski and Chris Perez, the closer’s role in Cleveland has always been a rather interesting situation. The guys that give you a heart attack just to close out a ballgame. And then there are the guys that blow ballgames. The Indians have used...

Indians' Allen bounces back after tough outings

CLEVELAND -- After struggling in his last two outings, Cody Allen bounced back with a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Detroit. Allen had allowed four earned runs in his previous two appearances. He gave up three runs against Oakland last Sunday and then allowed a game-tying home run to pinch-hitter J.D. Martinez in the ninth inning on Monday against Detroit. On Tuesday...

Allen Succeeds in Any Role He’s Given

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

Meyer: Five players to watch

Cody Allen, Indians (RP) Terry Francona is keeping the closer decision confidential right now. However, he has been quoted saying that Cody Allen will "pitch in every meaningful game." While it's in the form of a setup role or the closer is yet to be announced, I like to think he'll be the guy in the ninth inning. Even last season, I thought Allen had closer-potential for the Tribe...

Crockett could see Cody Allen-like rise to Cleveland in 2014

Right-hander Cody Allen was drafted in 2011, travelled through four different minor league stops in that same year, and half way through the 2012 season he was called up to the big leagues. He hasn't looked back since and has become one of the Indians primary weapons out of the bullpen. Left-hander Kyle Crockett could very well be on the same path. Crockett, 22, was selected in the...
