|Cody Allen moves to 2-0 with win Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/3/14) Indians pitcher Cody Allen became the first pitcher to go 2-0 in 2014 Wednesday, pitching a scoreless eighth inning and striking out one in his team's 6-4 win over the A's.
Allen secured the win Monday and came right back to grab another win Wednesday. He's coming off a breakout 2013 season in which he went 6-1 with a 2.43 ERA and 88:26 K:BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings.
|Indians pair looking fine as setup men |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/15/14) The quest to replace setup man Joe Smith, who bolted for the Angels in free agency, is going quite well for the sizzling Indians, at least in spring training.
Both Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen appear capable of handling the load. The former has pitched five scoreless innings while the latter has surrendereed just one run in three innings.
Shaw and Allen gave indications in 2013 that they could do the job. Shaw compiled a 3.24 ERA, 1.173 WHIP and averaged 8.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Allen boasted a 2.43 ERA, 1.251 WHIP and 11 strikeouts per nine innings to place sixth in the American League Rookie of the Year balloting.
The two will serve behind new closer John Axford, but it remains to be seen what innings they generally handle. Terry Francona could be leaning toward Allen as his eighth inning guy.
|Cody Allen collects second save |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/13) Indians reliever Cody Allen endured a shaky outing but escaped with his second save of the season Friday night against the Royals.
Allen worked his way around two hits and a walk as he struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve a 3-0 victory. He has a 2.27 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP through his first 39 2/3 innings.
|Vinnie Pestano tabbed interim closer |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/27/13) Indians manager Terry Francona said Monday that reliver Vinnie Pestano will be the first option to close games with Chris Perez on the disabled list. That honor will not go to Joe Smith or Cody Allen, MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old Pestano just blew his second save after he allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over an inning in Boston Saturday. He's gone 1-1 with four holds, two blown saves and a 5.25 ERA.
|Cleveland in search of closer |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/27/13) The Indians are in need of a closer and there is currently no word on who that will be after the Tribe placed Chris Perez on the disabled list Monday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Cleveland called up Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus, but he'll be middle relief help. The logical choices are Joe Smith and Cody Allen, and Brett Myers also has experience closing games. That said, Myers has been used as a starter for Cleveland and is also on the shelf.
Vinnie Pestano could be another option, but he just came off the DL and has shown lowered velocity to this point.
