Hit 60 An efficient, compact swing and a high-rate of hard contact ensure Allen will hit for a good average. His plus-speed and willingness to use the entire field allow him to procure hits at a rapid pace.
Power 40 Physical limitations will limit Allen's HR Derby nominations, although his fast-twitch athleticism is capable of jolting the baseball on occasion. He will generate plenty of doubles and triples with gap power and plus-speed.
Baserunning/Speed 60 More quick than fast, Allen's first step burst and rapid acceleration allow him to take extra-bases and swipe plenty of bags.
Glove 60 Quick feet, outstanding balance, and exceptional hand-eye coordination contribute to Allen's plus fielding abilities. The natural shortstop is capable of providing above-average defense at any infield position and possesses the athleticism to play center field.
Arm 55 A quick release and fielding instincts/timing developed with thousands of repetitions enable Allen's arm to play better than its natural velocity.

Already a highly-skilled and experienced player at the age of 20, Allen's energetic athleticism and high baseball IQ make him the prototypical table-setting, plus-defending shortstop that championship-caliber teams covet.
