Rockies Sign Former Top Prospect Left-Hander

After a promising rise through the minors as an 18-through 21-year-old, earning elite prospect status in several organizations, left-handed pitcher Logan Allen hasn't quite lived up to the billing. The 25-year-old has been signed to a minor league deal by the Colorado Rockies—his 5th MLB organization. 

The Rockies are Allen's third organization in 2022, after being DFA'd by both the Cleveland Guardians and the Baltimore Orioles previously. In 7.2 innings pitched this season, he has a 5.87 ERA, and it's been even worse at Triple-A, where he has an 8.56 ERA in 22 innings. 

He's started out his Rockies tenure with Triple-A Albuquerque, allowing three runs in three innings on Sunday.

In 96 total major league innings throughout the past four seasons, Allen has an untenable 5.89 ERA and 1.66 WHIP, with an ugly 68:42 K/BB ratio.
He'll try to sort things out in order to be an option for the Rockies at some point.
