Drafted in the 2nd round (52nd overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2010 (signed for $2,250,000)
Based on his mid-90s fastball and hard slider, Allie entered 2010 as a likely first-round pick, but he had a reputation as more thrower than pitcher. He took a significant step forward in May, dialing his heater up to 98-99 mph and his slider up to 88-89 while showing more polish than ever before in consecutive starts, giving him a chance to go in the top 10 picks. He wasn't as electric or under control as much in his next two outings, so he'll probably go closer to the middle or end of the first round. His father Danny is a former scout and his coach at St. Edward, and he let Stetson throw 143 pitches in a complete-game win in the state Division I regional finals, in which he struck out nine but walked seven and hit two batters. Though he'll struggle with his control and command, the only pitcher in this draft with comparable pure stuff is Jameson Taillon. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Allie has cleaned up his delivery and command, and he maintains his overpowering stuff into the late innings. He had expressed a desire to hit, and he does have some of the best raw power in the draft. He famously hit a broken-bat homer at the East Coast Professional Showcase last summer, though his swing has gotten long this spring. With his size, power and arm strength, he could be an early-round pick as a third baseman, but he now accepts that his future is on the mound. A North Carolina recruit, he'll be a draft-eligible sophomore in 2012 if he doesn't turn pro this summer.
