Logan Allen is a polished, lefthanded strikethrower who has made the most out of his stuff this spring against his Florida high school competition. Allen posted a ridiculous 126:9 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 67 innings despite having no obvious plus pitches. His fastball sits in the upper 80s consistently, and he'll occassionally touch 93, but he commands the pitch well. He also throws a sharp curveball and a changeup which both flash average, but are likely to end up closer to fringe-average, 45-grade pitches. What allows Allen to have as much success as he's had is that he can command all three of those pitches. The biggest knock on him is that, at 5-11, he doesn't offer much projection but from all accounts he has great makeup and competes well.
