Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 45 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 50 | Overall: 55

Allen pitched for IMG Academy's (Fla.) high school squad as a senior before going to the Red Sox in the eighth round of the 2015 Draft and signing for $725,000. After a solid pro debut, he was one of four players shipped to the Padres as part of the Craig Kimbrel trade that November. Elbow soreness limited Allen's time on the mound the following year, but he had a healthy campaign in 2017 and then put it all together last season at age 21, earning an August promotion from Double-A to Triple-A, where he won four of his five starts. The Texas League Pitcher of the Year finished with a 2.54 ERA between the two levels and led the system with 14 wins and 151 strikeouts.

After pitching with a below-average fastball at the outset of his career, Allen now operates more in the 92-94 mph range with late life. He's aggressive with his fastball placement, too, and confidently attacks right-handed hitters on the inner half of the plate. A changeup that receives plus grades and plays nicely off his heater is Allen's best secondary offering, and he also has feel for throwing his curveball and slider for a strike, with the latter grading as the better pitch.

Allen did his part to assuage any concerns about a potential injury in 2017 by logging 125 innings and then handled a career-high workload last season in the upper Minors, working 148 2/3 frames. Allen's four-pitch mix along with his pitchabiliy give him a higher floor than ceiling, and he has the durability needed to be a workhorse starter in the big leagues.
