Allen was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Tuesday.

Allen will be the roster casualty as the Yankees add new signee Justin Wilson to the roster. Allen was never likely to be anything more than a bench option, as he's hit .239/.298/.343 in 221 career MLB games and hasn't graded out well in center field despite good speed. Whether or not that's an attractive enough package to convince another team to claim him off waivers remains to be seen.
