Early life[edit]

Logan Shane Allen was born in Palm Beach, Florida,[1] he is the second of three sons.[2] He studied at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, to develop his talent for baseball.[1]

Career[edit]

Minor Leagues[edit]

Allen was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the eighth round of the 2015 Major League Baseball draft out of IMG Academy,[3][4] he signed with the Red Sox and spent the majority of his first professional season with the Gulf Coast Red Sox, pitching to a 0.90 ERA in twenty innings, along with pitching one game for the Lowell Spinners in which he gave up one earned run in 4.1 innings.

On November 13, 2015, Allen along with Manuel Margot, Javier Guerra and Carlos Asuaje were traded to the San Diego Padres for Craig Kimbrel;[5][6] the Padres assigned him to the Fort Wayne TinCaps,[7] where he spent the whole season, posting a 3-4 record and 3.33 ERA in only 15 games (11 starts) due to spending time on the disabled list with an injury. He spent 2017 with both Fort Wayne and the Lake Elsinore Storm, pitching to a combined 7-9 record and 2.95 ERA with 142 strikeouts in 125 total innings pitched (24 games, with 23 being starts) between both teams, and 2018 with the San Antonio Missions and the El Paso Chihuahuas, going 14-6 with a 2.54 ERA in 25 games (24 starts) and was named Texas League Pitcher of the Year.[8] He returned to El Paso to begin 2019.[9]

San Diego Padres[edit]

Allen was called up and made his major league debut at Petco Park on June 18, 2019,[10] he pitched seven shutout innings for the win against the Milwaukee Brewers, with five strikeouts and two walks, and also had his first major league hit, later scoring on an error.[11]

Cleveland Indians[edit]

On July 31, 2019, the Padres traded Allen to the Cleveland Indians in a three-team trade, where the Reds acquired Trevor Bauer, the Indians also acquired Yasiel Puig, Scott Moss, Franmil Reyes, and Victor Nova, and the Padres acquired Taylor Trammell.[12]
