Stetson Allie Video From Today at Pirate City

Allie

Today Stetson Allie pitched at Pirate City, working in an inter-squad, simulated game.  Allie rotated with Bryton Trepagnier, with both throwing about two innings each.  I’ll have video of Trepagnier later, and Allie’s video is below.

Allie’s control was horrible, nearly hitting a few batters, including Willy Garcia twice in a row.  He was hit pretty hard at first, with Garcia lining a triple down the first base line, then scoring on a wild pitch.  Chase Lyles followed that with a deep home run to left field, which ended Allie’s first inning of work.

Allie was throwing 90-95 MPH.  He was throwing around 94-95 MPH from the windup, and 90-92 MPH from the stretch.  I don’t think he threw anything but fastballs.  Here is the video of his outing.  Just for reference, the rapid clicking you hear during the first few pitches was my camera, taking pictures like the one you see to the right.  Multi-tasking!

    If this video is indicative of anything, it’s likely he won’t open the season at WV like a lot of people hoped he would. He may show up later but an April start there doesn’t look promising and worst case is he starts at SC instead like the HS arms from last year

    Great work Tim!

    The Pirates really do have some exciting prospects.

    I understand you had to cut the videos into pieces. Which video are you posting next the one with Bryton Trepagnier or the one with Stetson Allie’s strikes?

    Off of this video, as a pitcher, Allie looks like he would make a fine power hitting thirdbaseman.

    Heck, Hansen has better control than him.

    Take it easy, the kid just graduated high school a few months ago. Yes his control was horrible and he has a lot of work to do but he is very young and has plenty of time to develop.

    He was throwing a couple different fastballs. The two-seam fastball was running in on the right handed hitters, and the cutter was running in on the left handed hitters. His control sucks, but his movement was impressive, especially if the velocity was in the 92-95 range.
