BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Allen started 2012 at High-A and finished it in the majors, where he found a fair bit of success immediately. He works with two easy-plus pitches: a 95-mph fastball with good rise and a ridiculously hard 85-mph curveball with a lot of bite. His fastball-heavy approach means he gives up a lot of fly balls, and he still has some control and command issues to work out, but Allen certainly has the stuff to be a closer one day. It's possible he finds himself working high-leverage innings as soon as this season.
