  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Rehab assignment on tap

    Allen (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Single-A Bradenton this weekend, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The Pirates said last week that Allen is unlikely to be ready for major-league game action until after the All-Star break, but he'll be able to join the Single-A club. The 29-year-old will require multiple rehab games before he's cleared to rejoin the Pirates, but he's on the right track in his recovery.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Likely sidelined through mid-July

    Allen (hamstring) is unlikely to be available for major-league game action until after the All-Star break, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Allen has been dealing with a hamstring injury since early April but resumed baseball activities in late April. While he appeared to be trending toward a rehab assignment last month, he hit a snag in his recovery process and will likely be unavailable for at least another month. Although the 29-year-old is unlikely to rejoin the Pirates until late July, it's possible he'll be cleared for a rehab assignment before then.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Hits snag in recovery

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Allen recently suffered an injury to his right hamstring and won't be ready to begin a rehab assignment until at least late June, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Allen has been sidelined since late in spring training due to a strained left hamstring, and though that hamstring is likely close to fully healed by now, he may have tweaked his other hamstring while compensating for the injured left leg. He'll likely be shut down from activities for the next few days before potentially resuming workouts, but he may need to complete a new running program before he's deemed ready for game action. Whenever Allen makes it back from the 60-day injured list, he'll likely be in store for a reserve role in the Pittsburgh outfield.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Rehab assignment soon

    Allen (hamstring) is eligible to return from the 60-day injured list June 6 and is hoping to begin a rehab assignment in the next 7-to-10 days, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Allen tweaked his hamstring in early April and has yet to make his season debut after signing with the Pirates in March. He'll likely need to spend a week or so at whichever affiliate he undergoes his rehab assignment with, putting his return around mid-June at soonest. Allen went 10-for-37 with four doubles, nine runs, two RBI and five stolen bases in 15 games with the Yankees last season.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Starts up baseball activities

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Allen (hamstring) has resumed baseball activities in Florida, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Tomczyk noted that the switch-hitting Allen is batting only from the right side at the moment, so the 29-year-old is seemingly still not able to generate full torque from the left side while he nurses a strained hamstring of that leg. Allen should be able to hit from the left side before he's able to run at full speed and change direction, which will be the final activity he'll need to complete before the Pirates send him out on a rehab assignment. Allen doesn't look like he'll be ready for game action for at least a couple weeks after the Pirates placed him on the 60-day injured list prior to the start of the regular season.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Placed on 60-day IL

    Allen (hamstring) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Allen tweaked his hamstring during Sunday's Grapefruit League matchup against the Rays and was expected to begin the regular season on the IL as a result. His placement on the 60-day IL will clear a spot on the 40-man roster and means he'll be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season. The 29-year-old slashed .294/.538/.765 with two homers, a triple, seven runs, four RBI and four stolen bases this spring, so it's certainly possible that he joins the major-league club once he's healthy.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Won't make Opening Day roster

    Allen (hamstring) won't be available for Thursday's season opener in St. Louis and is expected to be placed on either the 10- or 60-day injured list, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Allen was sent in for an MRI after he exited Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays with left hamstring tightness, and though the Pirates have yet to reveal the results of his imaging, he's seemingly dealing with more than a minor strain. Considering that a stint on the 60-day IL is potentially on the table for Allen, expect him to miss more than the minimum amount of time even if Pittsburgh opts to place him on the 10-day IL instead. Before suffering his injury, Allen was making a strong case for a spot on the Opening Day roster.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Tweaks hammy Sunday

    Allen was removed from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays in the top of the third inning due to left hamstring discomfort, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    He was seen grabbing at the hamstring after he scored on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second. Allen's late-spring injury is a less-than-ideal development for the Pirates with one of their other outfield options in Anthony Alford (hand) already expected to begin the season on the injured list. The Pirates are viewing Allen as day-to-day for the time being until he goes through a formal medical evaluation later Sunday.

  • Pirates' Greg Allen: Grabbed by Pirates

    Allen was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Allen should in theory have a clearer path to playing time in Pittsburgh than he did with the Yankees. It's far from guaranteed that he earns regular at-bats, however, as he's a lifetime .241/.307/.348 hitter in 666 trips to the plate whose defense doesn't grade out particularly well in center field despite his speed.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Joins wild-card roster

    Allen's contract was selected by the Yankees ahead of Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game against the Red Sox.

    Allen's skill set makes him a good fit for a bench role in the postseason, as he's well-suited to serve as a pinch runner or defensive replacement. He's unlikely to have much of a role at the plate, as his 140 wRC+ in a small sample of 48 plate appearances this season doesn't line up with his career wRC+ of 76.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Heads to minors

    The Yankees returned Allen to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Allen had been serving as a replacement player amidst the Yankees' small COVID-19 outbreak, so the move suggests somebody has been cleared to return from the COVID-related injured list. The 28-year-old outfielder has gotten on base at a .417 clip in 15 games with New York, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the big-league club if injuries or the virus create a roster opening at some point.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Returns to lineup Tuesday

    Allen (knee) is batting ninth and playing center field Tuesday.

    Dealing with knee soreness, the outfielder was held out of the lineup for four consecutive games, although he did appear as a pinch hitter in each of the last three contests. While New York's acquisition of Joey Gallo has relegated Allen to a backup role, Brett Gardner is not playing well enough to earn everyday starts, creating opportunities for Allen.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Remains on bench

    Allen (knee) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    After he was scratched ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Rays due to knee soreness, Allen will stick on the bench for the fourth straight game. The Yankees felt comfortable enough with Allen's health to use him off the bench for both of the past two contests, so the knee issue wouldn't seem to be much of a concern. Instead, Allen likely finds himself on the bench as a result of the acquisition of Joey Gallo and the recent return of Aaron Judge from the COVID-19 injured list. With Gallo and Judge likely to start at either corner-outfield spot in most games and Brett Gardner atop the depth chart in center field, Allen looks like a fourth outfielder for the club.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Managing knee soreness

    Allen isn't starting Thursday's game against the Rays due to knee soreness, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Allen was scratched from Thursday's lineup, and the Yankees later revealed that his removal was due to a knee injury that he sustained when he was hit by a pitch Wednesday. The severity of the issue isn't yet known, but the 28-year-old should be considered day-to-day.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Removed from lineup

    Allen was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rays for an unspecified reason.

    It's not clear whether Allen's removal from the lineup is due to an injury, but Estevan Florial will start in center field and bat ninth. Whether the 28-year-old is available off the bench remains to be seen.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Swipes fifth base

    Allen went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Rays.

    He got the nod in center field once again and batted ninth, Allen's ninth straight start for the Yankees. He's slashing .269/.429/.462 over that stretch with five steals and seven runs, providing some surprising fantasy value, but his playing time could dry up quickly if the team brings in reinforcements at the trade deadline.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Racking up steals

    Allen went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

    Allen's fourth-inning double brought home Brett Gardner to tie the score 2-2, and he subsequently swiped third base as part of a double steal with Tyler Wade. Since being called up to the big club July 16, Allen has gotten exactly one hit in each of his five games, going 5-for-12 with three walks and five runs. He has also stolen a base in three consecutive contests. The Yankees are among the league's least prolific running teams -- they rank second-to-last with only 26 thefts on the season -- so Allen's injection of speed may be earning him consideration to remain with the big club even after its currently depleted roster begins to fill back out.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: On base twice, stolen base

    Allen went 1-for-2 with two runs, an RBI, a walk and a stolen base in a 9-1 triumph against Boston on Sunday.

    Making his third straight start, Allen singled and scored in the third, hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth and walked, stole second and scored in the seventh. The 28-year-old hit ninth Sunday and was part of a 7-8-9 collective that went a combined 5-for-8 with seven runs, five RBI and three walks on the game for New York. Allen has now hit safely in each of the last three games and could stick around once New York's regulars return if he continues to play well.

  • Yankees' Greg Allen: Making second straight start

    Allen will start in center field and bat ninth Sunday against the Red Sox.

    Allen will draw his second straight in the outfield after going 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 3-1 win. New York lost another outfielder for the season in that contest in Tim Locastro (knee), which could pave the way for Allen to pick up at least semi-regular work until one of Miguel Andujar (wrist), Aaron Judge (COVID-19) or Clint Frazier (illness) returns from the injured list.
