Indians | Manager endorses Cody Allen

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen received a vote of confidence from manager Terry Francona Tuesday, April 21. "Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list."

Fantasy Tip: Allen rewarded his managers endorsement with a three-strikeout save Tuesday. Until he is removed from the role, which seems unlikely at this point, Allen should be viewed as a mid-tier save candidate. He has an 11.7 K/9 over the past three seasons, too.

Indians | Trevor Bauer gets raw deal

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:36:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer allowed just four hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings Monday, April 20, against the Chicago White Sox but ended up with a no-decision after CL Cody Allen blew his first save.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer has a miniscule 0.95 ERA through three outings while posting six or more innings and recording seven or more strikeouts in each start. At just $3,900 (or 7.8% of cap) he is a fantastic FantasyScore bargain while running hot.

Indians | Cautious of using Cody Allen, Bryan Shaw

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 14:20:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians RPs Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw will be monitored so they're not used too much. "Because they'll say yes [if I summon them to pitch], I need to check myself sometimes," manager Terry Francona said.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is the clear-cut closer according to his recent use, so maybe Francona will ease up when the situation does not call for a save. Shaw continues to be useful as a handcuff and RP innings filler in deep leagues.
