RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Pitching depth is typically the first thing mentioned when the Braves' farm system gets brought up. It's worth keeping that depth in mind when noting that no pitcher in that system offers the combination of floor and ceiling that Allard brings to the table. The projectable southpaw missed the first two months of the season with a back injury and then gave up 11 runs in 12 innings over his first three starts with Low-A Rome, leading to a demotion to the Appalachian League. However, he made the necessary adjustments and returned to the Sally League in mid-July, using a plus fastball and plus curveball to cruise to the finish with a 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 50:16 K:BB over his final eight starts (48 innings). It's scary to think what he might do this year as a 19-year-old in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League.
