- Drafted in the 23rd round of the 2011 MLB draft, Allen sped through the minors (1.74 ERA, 0.84 WHIP in 98 innings over four levels) to become the second player from that draft to reach the majors (Arizona's Trevor Bauer was the first). Upon joining the Indians in late July, Allen pitched 13.2 scoreless innings to start his big league career. Eventually, the walks he was issuing caught up with him as his ERA ended up at 3.74 by the end of the season thanks in large part to the amount of free passes he allowed (15 unintentional walks in 29 innings). Allen's minor league past was hardly filled with control problems (22 unintentional walks in 98 innings), but his command will flare up occasionally. He showed us where he can struggle in his first trip around the majors, but he also displayed what earned him the opportunity in the first place. Allen posses two plus pitches in his fastball and curveball. His fastball sits in the 93-95 rang
