Terry Francona: I'm still tinkering with closer spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Terry Francona said Saturday that the goal remains to work deposed Indians closer John Axford back into that role, per MLB.com. He added that others are performing better in the ninth inning at this time.

He is likely referring specifically to Cody Allen, who has thrived as a closer in recent weeks. Allen has nailed down his last four save opportunities without giving up a hit and walking just one. Francona is still claiming a closer-by-committee approach, but Allen has been used in all save situations of late.

Axford has bounced back as a short reliever after getting bounced out as closer. He has surrendered just one earned run in his last 10 appearances.

Cody Allen looks every bit like the Indians closer


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) Cody Allen recorded his third save of the season and second in as many days Saturday, marking the first time the Indians turned to the same pitcher for consecutive save opportunities since John Axford lost the role.

And considering he was the one everyone assumed would step into the role if something happened to Axford, that's a pretty good indication he's the guy now.

Bryan Shaw made a strong case, recording two saves with a 1.63 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 29 appearances, but he may have the same issue Darren O'Day does: He's too valuable in middle relief. Axford had a chance of reclaiming the role at some point, but allowing seven baserunners in 3 2/3 innings in his last four appearances doesn't exactly help his case.

Allen has some control issues of his own but makes up for it with his bat-missing ability, averaging 11.2 strikeouts per nine innings. Of course, with a blown save or two, the controversy could begin anew, but for right now, Allen is worth using as a second reliever in Fantasy.


Cody Allen picks up the save vs. Rockies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Indians pitcher Cody Allen worked his way past a walk and needed only 14 pitches to complete a scoreless ninth inning, securing a 7-6 victory over the Rockies and his third save of the season Saturday afternoon.

Cody Allen Ks two in 1-2-3 inning for save No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Indians pitcher Cody Allen struck out two and needed only 12 pitches to complete a perfect ninth inning, securing a 5-2 win and the save Friday night against the Rockies. It was his first save since May 9. Allen owns a 3.22 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP in 22 1/3 innings of relief.

Indians closer mess gets even messier


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/20/2014) Considering he got the first since John Axford's removal from the closer role May 11 after filling in for him just a few days earlier, Bryan Shaw appeared to be the Indians' go-to guy for the ninth inning in the near term. So when he pitched the eighth inning of a game the Indians led by only one run Monday, it was a bit of a shock.

Granted, coming into the year, Cody Allen was considered the more likely replacement for Axford should anything go wrong, but Shaw had been so effective this season, compiling a 1.71 ERA in 23 appearances, that his ascension to the role wasn't the biggest upset ever.

Considering Allen blew the save Sunday, Terry Francona might want to rethink rethinking who he uses in the ninth inning. His hesitance to commit to either Shaw or Allen is a pretty good indication he hopes to turn the ninth inning back over to Axford at some point. Axford has had four scoreless appearances since being removed from the role, allowing no hits and two walks in 3 1/3 innings.

If I was ranking the three in terms of how many saves I think they'll get from now to the end of the season, I'd go Axford, Shaw and Allen.
