American League – Top Hitter of the Day

  • Greg Allen, CF – Hi Lynchburg Hillcats (CLE) – Carolina League/Northern – 23 yo;
    • 2-3, 2 2B, 4R, RBi, 2BB, 3 SB (13)
    • The 6th rounder out of San Diego State University (2014) leads all of organized baseball with 13 stolen bases, overtaking Boston top prospect Yoan Moncada‘s 12. In a system that boasts top outfielders Bradley Zimmer, Clint Frazier and Tyler Naquin, it will be difficult to ignore Allen’s plus-plus speed and plus defense (.989 career Fld. percentage) mixed with his slash-type stroke and superior plate discipline (95:92 BB:K ratio), which makes him a strong UTR prospect moving forward. Allen is one of those prospects who continues to be overlooked because he’s age/level appropriate.
