Athletics' Nick Allen: Two RBI in win
Allen went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's victory over the Royals.
Allen picked up both of his RBI on a late single, sending Chad Pinder and Cristian Pache to the plate. The shortstop has played in four games since June 21 and has a hit in three of them while only striking out once during that span. Allen may be earning himself some more playing time as he is slashing .273/.429/.636 this month.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Scores twice in win
Allen went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Saturday's victory over Kansas City.
Allen sent Elvis Andrus home on an RBI double in the fourth inning, then came around to score two batters later thanks to a Jonah Bride single. Allen also scored on Tony Kemp's homer in the eighth inning. The shortstop has seen limited time this season, but he has played in four games this week and picked up a hit in three of them. Allen will have to continue to hit if he wants to stay in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Making fifth start in six games
Allen will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Allen will stick in the lineup for the fifth time in six games, with three of his starts coming at second base and two coming at shortstop. The keystone looks like a clearer path to playing time for Allen, as the Athletics can move Tony Kemp off second base and deploy him in the corner outfield to facilitate room in the lineup for the rookie. Allen's stint as a near-everyday player will likely last as long as he remains useful at the plate. Through his first four games since his call-up from Triple-A, Allen has gone 3-for-11 with a home run, a double, three walks, three RBI and three runs.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Homers in return to majors
Allen went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Mariners.
Allen provided the Athletics' only runs with his seventh-inning blast off Mariners starter Marco Gonzales. It was Allen's first big-league game since May 21, and the homer was his first career blast in the majors. He's still batting just .192 with two RBI and three runs scored through 29 plate appearances. A natural shortstop, Allen could challenge the struggling Elvis Andrus for playing time at that position, or he could see the short side of a platoon with Tony Kemp at second base.... See More ...

Athletics' Nick Allen: Called up Tuesday
Allen was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Allen will return to the big leagues after being sent down May 22. The shortstop has produced a .174 batting average with two doubles, two runs and a stolen base over 23 at-bats in two stints with the Athletics this season. He's been red hot in June with Las Vegas, producing a .365/.500/.538 slash line with a home run, six doubles and 11 RBI in 16 games. With the Athletics out of playoff contention, it's possible that the 24-year-old sticks around for a while.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Sent to minors
Allen was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Allen was promoted from Las Vegas on Wednesday and will return there after going 0-for-4 in two appearances for the A's. He's unlikely to have much of a role in the majors while Oakland's infield remains in good health.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Recalled by Athletics
Allen was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Allen was sent down in early May, but he'll rejoin the major-league club after spending just over two weeks in Las Vegas. He's appeared in eight games for the Athletics this year and has hit .211 with two doubles, two runs and a stolen base. The 23-year-old should serve as infield depth now that he's back in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Retreating to minors
The Athletics optioned Allen to Triple-A Las Vegas following Monday's 6-1 loss to the Rays, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
His demotion likely clears a spot on the 26-man active roster for reliever Lou Trivino (illness), who appears ready to return from the COVID-19 injured list. After getting his first call to the majors April 18, Allen appeared in eight games for Oakland and went 4-for-19 with two doubles, two runs and a stolen base.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Productive in Saturday's loss
Allen went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Guardians on Saturday.
The rookie swiped his first major-league bag off the Shane Bieber-Austin Hedges battery while also contributing the first multi-hit effort of his career. On the other hand, his defensive misadventures in the ninth inning led directly to the winning runs for Cleveland. Allen has posted a .222/.300/.333 slash line over his first 20 plate appearances while seeing time at second base and shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Gets fourth straight start
Allen will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Allen is filling in for a resting Elvis Andrus on Sunday, but the rookie should see steady playing time at the keystone during the upcoming week at least until Oakland gets Chad Pinder or Jed Lowrie back from the COVID-19-related injured list. Through his first four big-league games, Allen has gone 2-for-12 with two doubles and a run.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Gets first big-league hit
Allen went 1-for-3 with a double and a run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.
The rookie collected his first big-league knock with his seventh-inning two-bagger and subsequently came home on Sheldon Neuse's single. Allen's first two starts have come at second base, as manager Mark Kotsay has kept Elvis Andrus at Allen's primary position, shortstop, in both games.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Hitless in big-league debut
Allen made his major-league debut in Tuesday's win over the Orioles, starting at second base and going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.
The defensive-savvy prospect is more renowned for his prowess at shortstop, but he's also logged 61 appearances at the keystone in the minors. Allen's promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday was the result of the Athletics' rash of COVID-19 absences, so his initial majors stint may not last but a few days.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Joins big-league club
Allen was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Allen missed out on Oakland's Opening Day roster but will now join the big club with six players heading to the COVID-19 injured list. It may not be a long stay in the majors for the 23-year-old, but he could see a few opportunities with Jed Lowrie (undisclosed) and Chad Pinder (undisclosed) among the players sidelined....

Athletics' Nick Allen: Optioned to Triple-A
Allen was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.
Allen made a strong case for an Opening Day roster spot this spring by going 6-for-12 with a home run, two triples, three runs, three walks and three strikeouts across seven Cactus League games. While he'll head to Las Vegas to begin the regular season, the 23-year-old is a strong candidate to make his major-league debut for the rebuilding Athletics if he performs well in the minors early in the year....

Athletics' Nick Allen: Continues making strong case
Allen, who went 1-for-4 in a Cactus League loss to the Guardians on Saturday, is now hitting .500 (6-for-12) with two triples, a solo home run, three walks and three runs across his first seven exhibitions.
The fact the star defensive prospect is wowing with the bat certainly ups his chances of snagging an Opening Day roster spot, and the rebuilding Athletics appear to be looking to afford him every opportunity by also testing out his elite glove at second base already this spring. Allen's current success with the bat isn't necessarily surprising, either, considering he's coming off a stellar .319/.374/.471 line at Double-A Midland last season. He generated a .243/.302/.301 tally at Triple-A Las Vegas across 39 games.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Nick Allen: Makes impression Saturday
Allen went 1-for-2 with a triple and a run in a Cactus League loss to the Reds on Saturday.
It was encouraging for fantasy managers to see Allen, who's already considered an elite defender at shortstop, flash with the bat against big-league pitching with his leadoff triple in the fifth inning. The 23-year-old was impressive last spring with the bat as well with a .300/.344/.400 slash line in 31 plate appearances. After following it up with an even more impressive .319/.374/.471 tally at Double-A Midland, Allen struggled some against Triple-A arms at Las Vegas (.243/.302/.301 in 151 PAs), but a strong enough spring at the plate could conceivably see him latch on to a roster spot....

Athletics' Nick Allen: Contract selected
Allen was added to Oakland's 40-man roster Friday.
The move means Allen won't be available for selection in the Rule 5 draft. He still has to conquer Triple-A before pushing for a big-league roster spot, as he struggled to a .243/.302/.301 line in 39 games after a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas late in the year, but he should make his major-league debut at some point next season if all goes well....

Athletics' Nick Allen: On move to Triple-A
The Athletics promoted Allen from Double-A Midland to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The 22-year-old shortstop hasn't played for Midland since July 15, instead spending most of the past three weeks with Team USA in Tokyo helping the national team secure the silver medal in the Olympic Games. The Athletics evidently felt Allen's experience against higher-level international competition was enough to warrant a bump up to Triple-A, where he'll likely remain for the rest of the season. Over his 229 plate appearances at Midland, Allen slashed .319/.374/.471 with six home runs and an 8-for-14 success rate on stolen-base attempts.... See More ... See Less
