|2014 summary: Cody Allen emerged from the 2013 season looking like one of the better closers-in-waiting, but he is waiting no more. After the John Axford experiment failed in Cleveland, it was Allen who emerged as the Indians' new closer, as he filled the role over the final four months of the season. He actually got better once he started closing out games regularly, as he registered a 1.49 ERA from May 30 forward after posting a 3.38 mark prior to that. Allen had a string of 17 consecutive converted saves, but he struggled down the stretch, blowing three of his last nine opportunities.|
Playing time status: Allen is expected to return as the Indians' closer for 2015.
2015 outlook: Not only has Allen done a good job of preventing runs over his career with a 2.50 ERA, but he is also a reliable source of strikeouts. He can be wild at times and he is prone to allowing flyballs, so Allen could be more vulnerable than other high-strikeout closers. He's worth owning in standard mixed leagues, but he's best drafted as a No. 2 reliever.
