Ch-ch-ch-changes... Luke Bard is back with the big league club, Tyler Skaggs has been reinstated and Matt Ramsey is back in Salt Lake.

Apparently, Allen’s injury is being defined as a “lumbar spine strain” - otherwise known as a low back strain. Unknown is whether or not his injury is “real” or a chance to right the ship a bit as he has struggled lately.

Allen has only thrown 9 innings but has a 6.00 with a 1.889 WHIP. On the positive side, he IS 4 for 4 in save opportunities.
