Guardians' Logan Allen: Heads to injured list
The Guardians placed Allen on the 15-day injured list Saturday with left shoulder inflammation, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Allen's trip to the injured list will put an early end to his rookie campaign. He'll finish the season with a 3.81 ERA and 1.40 WHIP alongside 119 strikeouts across 125.1 innings. Michael Kelly was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Early exit in Tuesday's loss
Allen (7-8) took the loss Tuesday, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks over three innings as the Guardians were downed 7-6 by the Royals. He struck out one.
The rookie southpaw needed 68 pitches (43 strikes) to record just nine outs, with a two-run homer by MJ Melendez in the first inning setting the tone for the night. Allen hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his last five starts, posting a 6.14 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB through 22 innings over that stretch, and given that the 25-year-old has already tossed a career-high 145.2 innings between Triple-A and the majors this season, he could be shut down and lose his rotation spot should both Shane Bieber (elbow) and Triston McKenzie (elbow) get activated from the IL for a final start or two before the end of the year....

Guardians' Logan Allen: Allows one run in no-decision
Allen did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over five innings against the Giants while striking out five.
Allen got himself in a jam right out of the gate, surrendering back-to-back singles to open the first inning, which would eventually lead to one run coming across for San Francisco. However, the rookie left-hander allowed just two hits and two walks from the second inning on and was in line for his eighth win prior to the Giants' late comeback. Allen has now pitched five innings of one-run ball in back-to-back starts, lowering his season ERA to 3.60. On the downside, he's also issued multiple walks in each of those starts and in seven of his last nine outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Secures seventh win
Allen (7-7) allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings to earn the win Friday over the Angels.
Allen had allowed 11 runs over his last 15 innings during a three-start winless streak. He was able to put in a good, if inefficient, effort and was pulled after 90 pitches (55 strikes). The rookie southpaw is at a 3.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 113:43 K:BB through 117.1 innings over 22 starts this season. Allen is tentatively projected to make his next start at home versus the Rangers, though he could pitch in San Francisco instead if Xzavion Curry gets bumped from Cleveland's rotation next week....

Guardians' Logan Allen: Allows two homers in no-decision
Allen did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings against the Rays. He struck out five.
It wasn't the start that Allen hoped for as the right-hander surrendered a leadoff home run to Yandy Diaz in the opening at-bat. He appeared to settle in after that, retiring nine of the next 10 batters he faced before giving up a three-run shot to Christian Bethancourt in the fifth. Allen had not allowed more than one home run in any of his previous five starts, and he's now surrendered at least four runs in two straight. On a positive note, he did not issue a walk Saturday for the first time in his last seven outings.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Jolted by Jays
Allen (6-7) took the loss Saturday, coughing up five runs on six hits and a walk over four innings as the Guardians were downed 8-3 by the Blue Jays. He struck out two.
The rookie left-hander got staked to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning thanks to a Jose Ramirez solo shot, but he immediately squandered it, and Cleveland never recovered. It's the first time Allen hasn't lasted at least five innings since late June, and despite Saturday's stumble he sports a 3.80 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 39:17 K:BB through 45 innings since he rejoined the big-league rotation after the All-Star break. He'll look to bounce back in his next outing, likely to come at home next weekend against the Rays.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Saddled with loss in quality start
Allen (6-6) took the loss Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over six innings against the Tigers. He struck out five.
Allen started off the game with a walk followed by a two-run homer by Spencer Torkelson but then settled in to allow no more damage. He finished his start by inducing 12 consecutive outs, but the Guardians could muster only one run, which left him on the hook for his sixth loss on the season. Allen's next scheduled start is tentatively penciled in for Saturday against the Blue Jays in Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Blanks Cincinnati for sixth win
Allen (6-5) earned the win Tuesday, allowing four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings against the Reds. He struck out seven.
Allen's allowed just three runs over his last three starts (17 innings) after surrendering nine earned runs in his previous two outings. The rookie southpaw lowered his ERA to 3.33 with a 1.36 WHIP and 95:38 K:BB across 18 starts (97.1 innings) this season. Allen will look to keep rolling in his next outing, currently scheduled for this weekend at home against Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Takes tough-luck loss
Allen (5-5) took the loss against Toronto on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out three batters over five innings.
Allen induced only three swinging strikes in a less-than-dominant performance, but he kept the Blue Jays off the scoreboard outside of a George Springer solo homer in the first inning. That long ball was enough to give Toronto the win, however, as Cleveland's offense couldn't break through against Kevin Gausman and a trio of Blue Jays relievers. For Allen, the loss was his third in his past four starts, though he probably deserved a better outcome. The rookie is just 5-5 on the campaign, but he's pitched pretty well with a 3.55 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 88:35 K:BB over 91.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Walks four in win
Allen (5-4) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over six innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win against the White Sox.
The only damage against Allen came in the third inning, a nice turnaround after he'd been tagged with nine runs and four homers in his previous two outings before Friday's quality start. However, the four walks tied his season high. The 24-year-old rookie dropped his season ERA to 3.65 with an 85:32 K:BB through 86.1 frames. Allen lines up to face the Blue Jays at home next week....

Guardians' Logan Allen: Burned in Chicago
Allen (4-4) took the loss Saturday, coughing up five runs on eight hits and three walks over six innings as the Guardians fell 7-2 to the White Sox. He struck out four.
The rookie southpaw didn't get much run support, as Cleveland didn't even get on the board until after Allen had left the game, and while he kept things close through four innings he faded late. He's been tagged for four homers and 10 runs (nine earned) in his last two starts, both against less than fearsome opponents in the White Sox and Royals, and the addition of Noah Syndergaard (finger) and the eventual return of Cal Quantrill (shoulder) could have the clock ticking on Allen's time in the rotation. He'll try to turn things around in his next outing, likely to be a rematch with the ChiSox next weekend back in Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Coughs up five runs
Allen (4-3) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over seven innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Royals.
Allen gave up just two runs through five frames before serving up a two-run shot to Salvador Perez in the sixth inning. It was the first homer allowed by Allen since June 15 and was the first time in his career that he was tagged with multiple home runs. The left-handed rookie fired 12.2 shutout innings over his previous three starts and still owns a solid 3.39 ERA after Monday's hiccup. Allen's next outing is projected to be against the White Sox in Chicago this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Excellent in return to Cleveland
Allen (4-2) earned the win Tuesday, allowing just one hit and one walk over five scoreless innings in a 10-1 victory over Pittsburgh. He struck out eight.
It was an excellent showing from Allen after he posted mixed results in his first MLB stint this year. The rookie left-hander lowered his ERA to a solid 3.21 with a 1.37 WHIP and 71:25 K:BB through his first 13 starts (67.1 innings). Allen should see an extended look in Cleveland's rotation while Shane Bieber (elbow) and Cal Quantrill (shoulder) are sidelined. He's currently lined up to face the Phillies this weekend in his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Recalled for Tuesday's start
Allen was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.
The left-hander will make his return to the Guardians' rotation Tuesday against the Pirates, taking the rotation spot vacated by Shane Bieber (elbow). Allen pitched well in his first go-round in the big leagues earlier this season, collecting a 3.47 ERA and 63:24 K:BB over 62.1 innings of work covering 12 starts. The southpaw went just three innings in each of his two starts after being sent back to Columbus, so he might not be ready for a full workload in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Rejoining rotation Tuesday
Allen is expected to be called up from Triple-A Columbus to start Tuesday against the Pirates, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
With Shane Bieber (forearm) likely joining Cal Quantrill and Triston McKenzie on the injured list, Allen should have a secure rotation spot for the foreseeable future. The young southpaw had a 4.76 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 22.2 innings over his five most recent MLB starts.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Sent down to Triple-A
Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
The moves comes one day after Allen needed 98 pitches to cover 3.2 innings against the Royals, albeit in a scoreless appearance. Allen didn't last longer than four frames in any of his last three starts, and while his ERA for the Guardians is sitting at 3.47, his 1.44 WHIP points to some work still needing to be done. Cal Quantrill (shoulder) is slated to return from the injured list this weekend and will take Allen's rotation spot.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Logan Allen: Held to no-decision by pitch count
Allen did not factor in the decision against Kansas City on Wednesday, pitching 3.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five batters.
Given that Cleveland won the game in a 14-1 rout, it's particularly disappointing that Allen didn't stick around long enough to garner a victory. The rookie pitched well enough -- he didn't allow any extra-base hits, threw over 60 percent of his pitches for a strike and fanned five batters -- but the Royals racked up 31 foul balls off him to drive his pitch count up to 98 before he could finish the fourth frame. Allen at least managed to lower his ERA to 3.47, but he's now gone four or fewer innings in each of his past three contests despite allowing zero runs in each of the past two.... See More ...

Guardians' Logan Allen: Hurls four scoreless innings
Allen did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two hits and three walks over four scoreless innings against the Athletics. He struck out five.
The lefty was able to keep the Athletics off the scoreboard over four innings, but he needed 89 pitches to do so before being relieved by Nick Sandlin to open the fifth. This comes after the Allen lasted just three frames in his previous start, and he's now walked seven batters over his last seven innings of work. On a positive note, Allen was able to lower his ERA down to 3.68 on the season with the scoreless outing, and he'll look to bounce back at home next week when the Guardians take on the Royals....
