Greg Allen hit a two-run homer and stole a base during the Pirates' 4-3 win over the Yankees.
Allen has played with Cleveland, San Diego, and New York over the course of his five-year career. He has a career slash line of .241/.307/.348 and does not have a clear path to playing time so he can be ignored in drafts.
Greg Allen went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base on Wednesday in the Yankees' extra-inning win over the Phillies.
Allen has stolen a base in three consecutive games and is hitting .417/.500/.750 with five runs scored in five games since being added to the Yankees roster. The 28-year-old outfielder is worth a short-term add in deeper fantasy leagues and AL-only formats.
The Yankees traded for OF Greg Allen from the Padres.
Allen was designated for assignment last week and finds a new home in New York. He could serve as a useful pinch-runner for the Yankees, but we don't anticipate him having any fantasy value this year.
Greg Allen was optioned to the Padres' alternate training site Thursday.
Allen was on the active roster Wednesday, but was ultimately optioned to Padres' alternate site on Thursday. He is slashing .154/.281/.308 with one home run, four RBI and four runs scored across 32 plate appearances for the Indians/Padres in 2020.
The Padres acquired OF Greg Allen from the Indians in the deal that also brought over ace right-hander Mike Clevinger.
Allen will be a part-time player for the Padres, providing speed and defense off the bench. He doesn't have value in fantasy baseball leagues.
