Indians' Greg Allen: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

After starting four times in a five-game stretch, Allen now finds himself on the bench in back-to-back contests. On a roster full of poor hitters, Allen has been one of the worst offenders in the early going, managing just one hit and striking out nine times in 20 at-bats.

Indians' Greg Allen: Fourth start in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday against the Blue Jays, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Allen is making his fourth start in five games and seems to have at least separated himself from Jordan Luplow as the Tribe's fourth outfielder. However, Allen's 1-for-17 showing at the plate to begin 2019 probably makes it too early to conclude that he has established himself as an everyday player, even though corner outfielders Jake Bauers and Tyler Naquin have only performed marginally better.

Indians' Greg Allen: Not starting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Allen has been withheld from the starting nine for both of the Tribe's first two games, with manager Terry Francona having seemingly settled on Tyler Naquin, Leonys Martin and Jake Bauers as his preferred outfield against right-handed pitching. The switch-hitting Allen will likely swap in for Naquin versus lefties but could still struggle to see enough opportunities to provide the boost in stolen bases his fantasy managers may have expected heading into the season.

Indians' Greg Allen: May be slated for reserve duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Francona suggested Sunday that Allen will likely be a reserve outfielder for the Indians to begin the season, barring any personnel changes prior to Opening Day, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. "I don't want [Tyler] Naquin and [Jake] Bauers to just be strictly platoon guys because I don't think it's healthy for them," Francona said. "...We'll see. We don't want anybody ever just sitting, but [Allen] has the ability to pinch-run, to do things like that."

Given that Bauers was the key piece the Indians acquired in the three-way deal over the winter that sent Edwin Encarnacion to Seattle, it was always likely that the 23-year-old would have an edge on a starting role in the corner outfield over Allen. It's a little more surprising that Naquin appears to have emerged as the team's preferred option in right field, which could relegate Allen to spot duty in the early going despite his strong finish to 2018 and excellent spring numbers (.364 average, 12 extra-base hits, 6-for-6 on stolen-base attempts). Allen can still provide an impact in the steals category even if limited to only a couple starts per week along with the occasional late-inning pinch-running opportunity, but the shaky playing-time outlook is harmful for his fantasy outlook nonetheless.

Indians' Greg Allen: Excelling in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen has gone 13-for-31 at the dish (.419 average) during Cactus League play, collecting five extra-base hits to go along with two steals.

Most of Allen's 2018 fantasy value came in the form of his 21-for-25 mark on stolen-base attempts, but the 26-year-old showcased some growth as a hitter down the stretch, too. He slashed .310/.379/.405 in the second half, with an eight-point drop in his strikeout rate from the first half aiding his improvement. Allen shouldn't be counted on to provide much power this season, but his steal production coupled with what should be a palatable batting average makes him a decent late-round flyer in mixed leagues. His ability to capably defend all three outfield spots should also help his case for sticking in the lineup on a full-time basis.
