Allen Ties the Indians Franchise Mark for Saves; Where Does He Rank Among Tribe Closers?

4. Doug Jones

Not many Indians fans today remember Doug Jones, but from 1988 to 1990 the closer had three very memorable seasons on some bad Indians teams that earns him a place on this list.

Jones came to the Indians in 1986, and two years later took over as the closer and was outstanding, saving 37, 32 and 43 games over the next three seasons.

He held the Indians’ all-time record for saves with 129 until Bob Wickman broke it in 2006, and was a three-time All-Star with the Indians.
