I keep hearing though that he has a low batting average. Is carlos pena on the Rays someone to compare him to? Lots of power low batting average lots of K's?
If not who would you compare him to at the MLB level?
First off I don't know too too much about Allen, just from reading some scouting reports and checking out his stats. But if so far in the majors is any insight on his career he could potentially be a Pena with a little less power and a worse average. I don't think tho that the Pena comparison is actually to far off, he may hover around a Pena average with a few less dingers.
stat line so far on the Major's Scene:
11/54, 9R, 3HR, 8RBI, 0SB, .271OBP, .444SLG, .716OPS
Also looking at the numbers kind of a funny stat line, of the 11 hits so far 7 are for extra bases (3HR, 4Doubles). But then you look at total ABs compared to Ks and you get 54ABs compared to 21Ks, that about 40% of his ABs ending on a 3rd strike and he adds only 5 walks to that total.
I'm not big on this kid at all, I personally think Smoak (yes even with all the hype) will be a much better option over Allen.
