Allard suffered a Grade 2 right oblique strain in early March, and his move to the 60-day IL guarantees he'll be out for at least the first two months of the campaign.

Braves' Kolby Allard: To start Grapefruit League opener
Allard will start Atlanta's Grapefruit League opener Saturday against the Red Sox, Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Allard was traded from Texas to Atlanta on Wednesday in exchange for Jake Odorizzi and cash considerations.

Allard has thrown 17 innings of relief at the big-league level this season, struggling to an 8.47 ERA. He's been better in 20 starts for Triple-A Round Rock, but his 4.65 ERA at that level isn't impressive, either. The Rangers haven't named a starter for the nightcap, so that job could go to Allard if he isn't needed in relief in the afternoon game.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Kolby Allard: Picks up save
Allard struck out one over a scoreless inning to pick up his first save in an 8-6 extra-innings win over the White Sox on Sunday.

The left-hander opened the season in Texas, working as a stretched out, multi-inning reliever before being sent down to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers' Kolby Allard: Takes loss as bulk reliever
Allard (0-2) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against Kansas City, pitching three innings and allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one.
Allard was called up to the big club earlier in the day and ended up handling the most work in what amounted to a bullpen game for Texas. He gave up only one run -- on a third-inning homer by Whit Merrifield -- across his three innings, but that was enough to saddle him with the loss. It was nonetheless a promising outing for the left-hander, who entered the contest having given up five earned runs over seven frames on the season.... See More ... See Less

He was one of several relievers to throw Sunday, as the Rangers eased starter Spencer Howard off the injured list and needed length from the bullpen. Multiple innings will be the norm for Allard, who may also draw a spot start or piggyback on another pitcher on occasion.... See More ... See Less
