Allard probably would have ranked higher for me if he didn't get injured this Spring. However, there is still plenty to like. He may be relatively small in stature at six feet and 170 pounds but he has touched 96 with his fastball and features perhaps the best breaking ball in the high school class with his hard biting curveball.
Allard is a lanky looking left hander with a fastball in the mid 90's. His frame can serve as deceptive, as he does not look like he has the strength to throw in the mid 90's. He demonstrates good command over all of his pitches, but only his fastball and dynamite curveball can be considered plus pitches at this point. Needs to grow into his frame at 175-lbs, but there is definite room for growth.
