A polished strike thrower going back to his prep days, Allen posted a stunning 126-to-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio as a senior at University High in Orange City, Fla. At the time, his fastball topped out at 93, but he mixed and matched effectively enough to overpower the competition. His profile is much the same after three seasons with Florida International. Without an overpowering fastball, Allen has still had nothing but success as a starter, with a career 3.33 ERA and 246 strikeouts to 47 walks in 183.2 innings. He can run his fastball into the 93-94 mph range, but he usually pitches in the 90-91 range. The pitch plays above its below-average velocity thanks to deception and command, though he has turned what was a fringe-average changeup into a legitimate plus offering. He also has a curveball that’s more of an average pitch. Despite no truly overpowering offerings, Allen is confident in his stuff and pitches fearlessly inside against any hitter. In his abbreviated junior season, Allen racked up double-digit strikeouts in three of his first four starts, finishing with a 2.45 ERA over 25.2 innings with 41 strikeouts and just six walks. Allen also had a strong summer in the Cape Cod League, where he struck out 24 batters and walked three in 15 innings. In addition to his pitching accomplishments, Allen has been a two-way player for FIU every season and is a career .297/.362/.410 hitter while playing first base. His pro future is on the mound, and he should be a safe second-round pick.
