Cody Allen (forearm) has been throwing

Cody Allen (forearm) has been throwing at Globe Life Park during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Fantasy Impact

Allen signed a minor league deal with the team in February and then put up an 11.25 ERA in four Cactus League appearances. Still, there's a reasonable chance he makes the Rangers' bullpen in a shortened season with expanded rosters. However, it remains very unlikely that he provides any fantasy value this year.

Cody Allen signing minor league deal with Rangers

The Rangers signed Cody Allen to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

Fantasy Impact

Allen will earn $1.3 million if he makes the big-league club. He struggled as the Angels' closer last year but was ultimately released. It's unlikely he provides any fantasy value in 2020.

Cody Allen signing minors deal with Twins

Cody Allen is signing a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Allen struggled in 25 appearances with the Angels this season, posting a 6.26 ERA before being released. He'll pitch in the minors for a bit with the chance to earn a big league promotion to the Twins should things go well.

Cody Allen released by Angels

Cody Allen was released by the Angels Tuesday after being designated for assignment Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Hansel Robles seems to be the clear cut closer for the Angels right now, so releasing Allen is a comfortable move for the team and any fantasy owner hoping he'd return to his Cleveland Indian days.

Cody Allen DFA'd by Angles on Saturday

The Angels designated Cody Allen for assignment.

Fantasy Impact

It's a disappointing end to a brief tenure with the Angels. Allen entered the year as the team's locked-in closer but quickly fell out of favor. The right-hander posted a 6.26 ERA through 25 appearances after signing a one-year, $8.5 million deal in the off-season. He'll likely wind up somewhere on a minor league deal.
