Allen went 2-for-21 with two RBI and a stolen base in nine games during spring training.
Allen failed to do much at the dish, slashing .095/.231/.095. His performance certainly didn't help his case for a spot on the 26-man roster, though he should still have an opportunity to begin the 2020 regular season with the big-league club when play resumes.
Allen is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
He'll head to the bench for a second straight day as the Indians roll out an outfield of Jake Bauers, Bradley Zimmer and Franmil Reyes in the season finale.

After exploding with a four-hit, four-RBI performance against the Yankees on Aug. 15, Allen has started to slump at the dish and has transitioned back into more of a part-time role as a result. Over his last nine contests, Allen has generated just two hits in 29 at-bats, sinking his season slash line to .226/.285/.367. Though Allen will crack the lineup Thursday, he's merely working as a short-side platoon mate for Tyler Naquin, who is getting the day off with a southpaw (Daniel Norris) on the mound.

It was a huge day for the 26-year-old, who blasted his fourth home run of the season in the eighth inning as part of a four-hit, four-RBI showing. Allen ins't guaranteed everyday playing time with Yasiel Puig back in the fold coming off his suspension, but he's been hot since he was called back up from Triple-A Columbus, and he certainly bolstered his case for at-bats in this contest. For the season, Allen is slashing .257/.315/.426 across 163 plate appearances.
Allen will start in left field and bat sixth Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Off to an 8-for-26 start at the dish since being recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Aug. 6, Allen will collect his fifth consecutive start.

Allen was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Allen had been sent down Thursday after Cleveland acquired a pair of outfielder (Franmil Reyes and Yasiel Puig) at the trade deadline. He's needed again with Jordan Luplow (hamstring) heading to the injured list, though he may have a tough time earning at-bats in a suddenly crowded outfield.
Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.
Allen is no longer needed with the big club after the Indians picked up a pair of outfielders in Franmil Reyes and Yasiel Puig via trade Tuesday. The speedy outfielder has slashed .313/.389/.458 with one home run and two stolen bases over his past 18 games in the majors, so he should rejoin the big club sometime down the stretch.
Allen will start in left field and bat eighth Sunday against the Royals.
Allen will crack the starting nine for the sixth consecutive game, largely due to the skills he provides on defense and as a baserunner. The outfielder has gone 0-for-15 over the past three contests to sink his season-long slash line to .226/.297/.387 across 120 plate appearances.

He'll be included in the lineup for a fourth consecutive game after reaching base in seven of his 11 plate appearances over the previous three contests while providing quality defense in the outfield. With Oscar Mercado off to a 1-for-25 start to July and Jake Bauers (86 wRC+) and Tyler Naquin (93 wRC+) both performing at below-average levels this season, Allen could see steady at-bats while he's shining both at the plate and in the field.
Allen went 4-for-6 with a triple, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored Sunday against the Reds.
Allen put on a show at the dish in the series finale, capping off a four-hit afternoon with a two-run blast to right center field. After being recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, he's showing early on that he belongs in the big leagues.
Allen was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.
Allen was called up to serve as depth on the Indians' bench prior to the All-Star break. He has hit fairly well for Columbus this year, slashing .274/.349/.432 across 212 plate appearances.

Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.
Allen started eight of 10 games during his most recent stint with the big club, going 7-for-27 (.259) with a homer and four RBI during that stretch. However, he'll return to the minors in exchange for a relief arm (Nick Goody) ahead of Cleveland's scheduled bullpen game Wednesday.

Allen will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Manager Terry Francona will hand Allen a seventh consecutive start in left field with the defensive-minded speedster continuing to acquit himself well at the dish since being promoted from Triple-A Columbus on May 25. In seven appearances since rejoining the big club, Allen has gone 6-for-24 with three extra-base knocks (two triples and a home run). The improved offense coupled with the defensive upgrade he provides over Jordan Luplow looks like it may be enough to keep Allen in a strong-side platoon role for the time being.
