Drafted in the 24th round (729th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2014
A four-year starter for the Mustangs, Allen opted not to sign with the Red Sox as a 23rd-round pick last year and posted a solid senior campaign this spring, hitting .301/.345/.457 with a career-high five homers and 37 RBIs. But his stock has dropped a bit, in part because he put on some weight and has shown less arm strength and speed than he did a year ago, when both tools rated as 55s. Now his arm grades out as average, and his speed is fringy. Still, he's a good athlete with sound infield actions, and he figures to make a seamless transition to second base in pro ball, with enough versatility to fill in all over the diamond. Allen is an aggressive hitter with a pull-to-middle approach, and he has never walked much, posting a 12-39 BB-SO mark this spring. But he has bat speed and sneaky pop to the pull side, as well as a knack for barreling up line drives.
