Angels designate former closer Cody Allen for assignment amid disastrous season

The Angels on Saturday designated right-handed reliever Cody Allen for assignment, which means they’ll have a few days to decide whether to trade or release Allen or persuade him to accept an outright assignment to the minors. Very likely, he’ll be released.

Allen, as you might have guess, has struggled badly this season:

In terms of FIP, which is fielding-independent pitching (i.e., what a pitcher’s ERA should be given average luck and defensive support), Allen checks in with a grisly mark of 8.33. That largely flows from the fact that he’s walked 20 batters, all unintentionally, in just 23 innings this season and allowed nine home runs over that same span. Along the way, he’s lost a good bit of fastball velocity.
