Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.
Allen will head back to the minors after being recalled Wednesday and allowing three hits and three strikeouts over 2.1 innings against the Red Sox. The 22-year-old carries a 5.48 ERA through 64 innings pitched at the Triple-A level this season. Right-hander Phil Maton was recalled from Columbus in a corresponding move.
The Indians recalled Allen from Triple-A Columbus prior to Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.
The other piece involved in the three-team deadline deal that also landed Franmil Reyes and Yasiel Puig in Cleveland, Allen will move up to the big club for the first time since that July 30 trade. While the Indians intend to continue developing Allen as a starter, he'll presumably work out of the bullpen in what will likely be a short stay in Cleveland. The Tribe optioned one of its other long-relief options in Josh D. Smith to Triple-A to clear a spot on the active roster for Allen.
Allen and Franmil Reyes were acquired by the Indians from the Padres on Tuesday in a three-team trade that sends Trevor Bauer to the Reds, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Allen was optioned to Triple-A over the weekend and will finish his Padres tenure with a 6.75 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 14:13 K:BB over 25.1 innings. The Padres will receive outfield prospect Taylor Trammell in return, while Yasiel Puig will also join the Indians from the Reds. Allen has pitched as both a starter and a reliever with the Padres but seems likely to be used out of the bullpen for the Indians, at least for this season.
Allen was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
Allen is likely unavailable to pitch for a few days after tossing five innings across three appearances over the past four days, so he'll head back to the minors in exchange for a fresh bullpen arm (Robbie Erlin). The rookie owns a 6.75 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 14:13 K:BB in 25.1 innings with the Padres this season.
Allen (2-3) allowed a solo home run and a walk in one inning of relief Friday. He took the loss as the Padres fell 2-1 to the Giants.
Allen allowed the go-ahead homer to Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval in the 11th inning, which ultimately counted as the decisive swing of the game. Allen has a 6.75 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over eight appearances (four starts) this season. He's currently being used in a bullpen role, but he's struggled to find success regardless of his usage this year.
Allen (2-2) allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and three walks across 2.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Marlins. He did not record a strikeout.
Allen immediately ran into trouble, surrendering a three-run homer to Brian Anderson in the first inning. Things didn't improve much from there, as he allowed five batters to reach base in the second frame, leading to four more runs crossing the plate. The Padres have tried to fit Allen into the rotation as a sixth starter, though he also has pitched out of the bullpen and this performance isn't likely to give them much confidence in him as a starter going forward. After Tuesday's contest, Allen owns a 7.08 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 20.1 total innings for the season.
Allen is listed as the Padres' scheduled starter for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.
Allen's final appearance prior to the All-Star break came in relief, but he'll be reinserted into the rotation to kick off the Padres' six-game week. The Padres had closed out the first half with a six-man rotation and are likely to maintain that setup with an eye on giving Chris Paddack more rest between turns, so Allen isn't expected to receive a second start this week. Through his first 18 big-league innings, Allen has yielded nine earned runs on 20 hits and six walks while striking out 13.
Allen (2-1) took the loss against the Giants on Monday, giving up six earned runs on seven hits over four innings, striking out three and walking two in a 13-2 defeat for the Padres.
Allen was excellent in his first two big-league starts, yielding just two earned over 13 innings, but he couldn't keep it rolling in this contest as the Giants tagged him for six runs before chasing him from the contest after four innings and 83 pitches. Dinelson Lamet (elbow) is nearing a return from the injured list, so Allen could be in for a move back to Triple-A El Paso whenever Lamet is ready to return to action. In the meantime, his next start is currently scheduled for a Sunday road matchup against the Dodgers.
Allen (2-0) earned the win Tuesday at Baltimore after surrendering two runs on eight hits across six innings. He struck out five and walked two.
Allen's second major-league start unsurprisingly wasn't as sharp as his scoreless debut, but he still turned in good results despite allowing 10 baserunners. Two strong starts have likely secured the 22-year-old's place in the starting rotation, and his next start would line up for Monday against the Giants.
Allen will start Tuesday against the Orioles.
Allen earned at least one more turn in the rotation after pitching seven scoreless innings while allowing just three hits Tuesday against the Brewers. With another strong showing against the Orioles, he could secure his place in the rotation going forward.
Allen (1-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Brewers, allowing three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out five.
The 22-year-old southpaw was sharp in his big-league debut, generating plenty of weak contact among his 90 pitches (56 strikes). It's not yet clear whether Allen will stick in the Padres rotation for a while or head back to Triple-A El Paso, but he certainly did enough Tuesday to earn another turn.
Allen was officially called up for his major-league debut Tuesday against Milwaukee.
Allen is a fairly highly-rated prospect, though his 5.15 ERA in 13 starts for Triple-A El Paso this season certainly isn't anything to write home about. His 24.5 percent strikeout rate and 8.6 percent walk rate are perfectly fine, however. He projects as a future back-end or possibly mid-rotation starter, with mostly average pitches and command but a strong changeup.
Allen will be called up from Triple-A El Paso and make his major-league debut Tuesday against the Brewers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The Padres' bullpen is depleted following their wild slugfest series against the Rockies, so Allen will be called up to add some arm depth and start Tuesday's contest against Milwaukee, per Acee. The 22-year-old left-hander has a 5.15 ERA in 13 starts for the Chihuahuas due to a rough first two starts of the season that saw him give up 12 runs in five innings, as well as a seven-run blowup May 30. It could be a short stay with the big club, as the Padres have three off-days in an eight-day stretch starting Thursday, meaning they might no longer need the extra arm after this series with the Brewers.
Allen has a 1.00 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 18 innings in May for Triple-A El Paso.
Allen lost out to Nick Margevicius for the No. 5 spot in San Diego's rotation in spring training, but Margevicius couldn't keep the job and was optioned to Double-A Amarillo on Sunday. The Padres have been committed to managing the workload of Matt Strahm and Chris Paddack, and with Cal Quantrill struggling in his last trip to the mound, the Padres could be compelled to give Allen a look as a spot starter should he continue his strong Triple-A form. He's San Diego's No. 11 prospect.
Allen will begin the 2019 season at Triple-A El Paso, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Allen and Cal Quantrill looked to be the two finalists for the Padres' last remaining spot in the rotation heading into Opening Day, but the team instead made the surprising decision to go with Nick Margevicius -- who had never pitched above the High-A level -- as their No. 5 starter. The 21-year-old Allen's big-league debut will thus be put on hold, but he could be first in line for a promotion from the Pacific Coast League if the Padres decide to shake up their rotation at any point.
Allen is expected to start Sunday in the Padres' Cactus League finale versus the Cubs, which might put him on track to break camp as a member of the Opening Day rotation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Only Joey Lucchesi, Eric Lauer and Matt Strahm look like rotation locks at this point, and with the competition in camp becoming increasingly thin, a trio of prospects -- Allen, Chris Paddack and Cal Quantrill -- appear to be the remaining candidates for the final two spots. Paddack has been the most buzz-worthy of the three hurlers this spring and commands the most immediate attention in redraft leagues, but Allen is a well-regarded southpaw who shouldn't be subject to as strict innings limitations this season as Paddack. Allen has submitted a 7.27 ERA this spring, but much of the damage came in one brutal start. He's otherwise looked sharper than Quantrill thus far and could solidify his spot with the big club with one more quality showing over the weekend.
Allen (leg) will make his scheduled spring start Sunday against Kansas City, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Allen sustained a leg bruise after being hit by a line drive Tuesday but won't have his start pushed back. The 21-year-old has not allowed a run over 3.2 innings thus far in spring training and could make his MLB debut in 2019, though he is still likely to begin the season at Triple-A El Paso.
Allen (bruised leg) will stay on his normal progression, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The southpaw took a liner off his leg Tuesday and has a big bruise to show for it, but he seems desperate to get back on the mound and show the big-league coaches what he has. It sounds like he could make his next spring appearance this weekend or early next week. Allen is expected to open the year at Triple-A, but should spend the bulk of the season in the majors if he is healthy and relatively effective.
Allen exited Tuesday's game against the Mariners after being struck on the leg by a line drive, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Allen initially stayed in the game after taking a liner off his leg in the second inning, though he was subsequently removed after walking the next batter. The youngster tossed 1.2 scoreless innings before giving way to Phil Maton, allowing one hit and one walk. The Padres are calling his removal precautionary, so Allen should be considered day-to-day for now.
Allen was invited to the Padres' major-league camp Thursday.
Given his lack of experience at the highest level of the minors, Allen is expected to open the 2019 campaign back with Triple-A El Paso. That said, the young lefty could make his big-league debut early in summer if he picks up where he left off in 2018, when he posted a combined 2.54 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 9.1 K/9 across 148.2 innings with El Paso and Double-A San Antonio.
