Notes 
  Allen had accrued a sub-3.00 ERA and K/9 above 11.0 in four straight seasons before his ERA ballooned to 4.75 with 80 strikeouts in 67 frames (10.75 K/9) last season. A massive 50.6% fly-ball rate led to a career-high 11 home runs surrendered. Here's the good news: He still found a ninth-inning gig with the Angels. The gopheritis and alarming walk increase (4.42 BB/9) make him a ratio risk, but Allen offers a rare source of affordable saves.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
  Allen's last year in Cleveland turned out to be his worst, but that didn't stop the Angels from signing him as their new ninth-inning man. Allen's strikeout rate fell of a bit last season, but the bigger concerns were his ballooning walk rate, declining velocity, and the high amount of hard contact allowed. Allen has plenty of job security and should be a serviceable closer on an above-average team, but it would be unwise to expect a return to a sub-3.00 ERA, sub-1.20 WHIP, or 12+ K/9. He's a mid-tier closing option for 2019.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  It seemed as though Ty Buttrey, Bedrosian and Anderson were going to compete for saves in LA, but then they signed Allen who figures to get the job. Don't be surprised if he losses the gig early, however, if he struggles like we saw last season. Don't consider him a lock for 25 saves again.
