HIGHLIGHTS

Greg Allen (CF, Lake County): 2-for-2, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB. It has been a weird year for Allen, as his overall stats are decent (.687 OPS in 38 games), though the outfielder has gotten there in a different way than one would expect. Allen’s game is more speed and defense, but the 2014 sixth round pick’s value is not coming from his .321 on-base percentage, but his .132 isolated power. The speed is still there for Allen (he is 14-for-18 in steal attempts this year) and his plate discipline is solid (25:15 SO:BB), meaning the only thing that seems to be holding the outfielder back is a low .256 BABIP. Given nothing else seems wrong with the 22-year-old, more balls should fall in for hits over the course of 2015, bringing his stats up even more and allowing Allen to end up with a strong year as a whole.
