Allen ready to ramp up workload during spring

The idea last year was to put Cody Allen on a gradual path toward being ready in time for Opening Day. The Indians closer worked in simulated environments, pitched in Minor League games and was careful with his throwing program between Cactus League appearances. Allen has a different plan in mind for this spring.
