First Shot Blind – Looking at 2018 Rookies

Greg Allen  Likely to get a crack at a fulltime OF job in Cleveland if Brantley doesn’t play OR Bradley Zimmer starts slowly OR gets hurt himself. The Tribe could also pick up an OF of course. If all goes well for the team, Allen will start in AAA. Greg is a True Burner easily capable of stealing 30 bases, a switch-hitter so that helps, little power, hits the ball on the ground, .379 OBP in 388 minor league games – you know this player even if you have never seen him. Sometimes they’re Whit Merrifield and sometimes they’re Craig Gentry. Right now Reserve A, see what happens. A plum reserve in 50-man NFBC drafts.
