1/17:Free-agent relief pitcher Cody Allen is in serious discussions with the Los Angeles Angels on a one-year deal, according to sources. The agreement is believed to be in place and is only pending a physical. With Blake Parker now in Minnesota, Allen could be the favorite to close in Anaheim over options like Ty Buttrey, Justin Anderson and Cam Bedrosian. Allen had a bloated 4.70 ERA (career high) with 11 home runs allowed in 67 innings. He also had a 1.36 WHIP, 10.7 K/9 and 27 saves as Cleveland's main ninth-inning man. Allen has 149 career saves, at least 30 saves in three of the last four years and an excellent 11.5 career K/9, so he'll be in the mix as a midrange fantasy closer if he's give the job for the Angels. Walks (4.4 per nine innings) and the long ball can give him problems, though, so he's certainly not an elite option.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
