    The Indians and Allen have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.575 million contract.

    Impact

    Allen posted a third consecutive season of at least 30 saves while earning $7.35 million in 2017, and finished the season with 92 strikeouts and a 2.94 ERA in 67 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old should hold down the closer's role again this year, though a healthy Andrew Miller always looms as a threat to steal some saves.

    News

    Allen and the Indians avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.575 million contract Wednesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Impact

    The two parties have now avoided arbitration for a third straight year, and the 29-year-old Allen was rewarded with another raise of more than $3 million after compiling a 2.94 ERA, 92 strikeouts and 30 saves across 67.1 innings in 2017. Allen has emerged as one of the more reliable closers in the game, logging at least 30 saves while turning in a sub-3.00 ERA in each of the past three seasons. With Andrew Miller likely set for another multi-inning role in 2018, Allen should once again enter the season with a firm grasp on the ninth inning.
