2019 Fantasy Outlook
What Allard lacks in terms of dominance (sub-8.0 K/9 rates at both Double- and Triple-A) he makes up for to a decent extent with good control and home-run suppression. Allard issued free passes at a 7.4% clip with Triple-A Gwinnett in 2018 and gave up all of six home runs in 112.1 innings with the Braves' top affiliate. He's not a huge groundball pitcher (38% last season), but he's nevertheless proven effective at limiting the long ball with his HR/9 never exceeding even 0.75 HR/9 on the farm. The lefty was knocked around for three homers in his limited exposure to big-leaguers (eight innings), and it's possible he won't be so good at limiting homers in the majors, but at the very least the control should translate. While he's behind several arms in the organization and the floor may not be as steady as it once seemed, Allard still stands a chance to be a useful back-end starter, possibly as soon as this season.
