Austin Allen

29-Year-Old CatcherC
Miami Marlins AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Allen made the Athletics' Opening Day roster last season but spent only five games with the big club and was eventually traded to the Cardinals in August. He posted an .837 OPS with seven home runs over 55 games in his third stint at Triple-A, which is actually a major step down from Allen's previous efforts at that level. The 29-year-old has looked overmatched during his brief opportunities in the majors, though, and his defense behind the plate isn't a strong suit. Allen inked a minor-league pact with the Marlins over the winter and looks poised to head back to Triple-A again to start 2023. Read Past Outlooks

Sent to minor-league camp
CMiami Marlins  AAA
March 22, 2023
The Marlins reassigned Allen to minor-league camp Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Allen joined the Marlins as a non-roster invitee in spring training and appeared in 12 games, batting .217 with one homer, five RBI and two runs scored over 23 at-bats. The 29-year-old has played in 23 total major-league contests in the last three seasons and seems unlikely to make much of an impact with the Marlins in 2023.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
2017
Allen came up through the San Diego system with a propensity for hitting, but was buried on the catching depth chart by Austin Hedges and Francisco Mejia. The Padres sent Allen up I-5 to Oakland in a deal for Jurickson Profar, and there was hope that he could take advantage of the opportunity in a platoon situation with Sean Murphy. However, Allen showed little ability to handle major-league pitching when he was given playing time and was eventually sent back to camp to work on his skills. One bad season should not write off his future, but the fact Murphy established himself as the C1 and Jonah Heim leapfrogged him into the C2 spot puts Allen back on the train to Triple-A for 2021 unless he has a huge camp. At 27, Allen is running out of time to establish his toehold in the majors.
Allen has hit 20-plus homers in each of the past three seasons in the San Diego system while hitting no worse than .283. The Padres' affiliates are in some friendly offensive environments, and El Paso is the best one in the minors so take the .330/.379/.663 line he put up last year with more than a pinch of salt. San Diego gave Allen some time at first base so that he would have some flexibility on the major-league roster, though given Eric Hosmer's durability, and with Francisco Mejia and Austin Hedges on the team, Allen's playing time was always tough to envision. Mejia is slated for a similar role in 2020 and the club wasn't going to move on from the amazing defense Hedges provides, so Allen was the one deemed expendable. The Padres traded him to Oakland in December. He will likely slot in behind Sean Murphy, but keep in mind Murphy has missed significant time with knee issues.
A fourth-round selection in the 2015 draft, Allen hailed from largely unknown Division II Florida Tech but had an extremely successful first full season in the minors. Allen showed a superior ability to make contact, fanning just 69 times in 109 games. Allen only drew 29 walks, though that is difficult to pick on when he hit .320 over an entire season. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Allen is also expected to blast more home runs with his left-handed power stroke. Allen does need more polish behind the dish, and he may not end up sticking behind the plate long term, but he's primed to take another step forward in 2017 while playing in the hitter friendly confines of the California League.
