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

2. Cody Allen

As mentioned in the open, Allen became the Indians closer in 2014, and that season had 76 appearances, a 6-4 record with a 2.07 ERA, 91 strikeouts, and 24 saves in 69.2 innings.

Oddly enough he’s never been an All-Star (the only one on the list) but has been as good as most closers in baseball in the time he’s been in the role, with a 22-26 record with a 2.75 ERA with now 139 saves.

His most saves in a season (to this point) came in the 2015 season when he saved 34 games, his saves per season is as follows – 24, 34, 32, 30 and right now he’s at 17.

He’s probably underrated as a closer for this franchise, but the thought of losing him this offseason should give Indians fans some sleepless nights.
