Had the glove to play short in high school but obviously physically more suited for a corner beyond that. Really only pitched in senior year. The kid has talent; moving to first at the pro level is basically learning a 3rd completely different position in 4 years. In general people say “pitching is ahead of hitting in spring”…so to come out on a tear to start season really makes me want to believe he will continue to show progress as he gets more comfortable with a position to call home.

I am not saying he could or should be moved, I am saying nobody on this blog site or any other blog site knows better than the Pirates where he should be, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

It may be that Allie was physically capable of become a star ML pitcher but failed in the low minors because his makeup — his personality — diminished his capacity to play the game. It is clear that he does not have the same problems when playing in the field.

I can see the Bucs wanting to try him as pitcher because of his arm but if he has a shot at being a power hitter it is good to let him take it.

Glad to see Slugger14′s post that he is athletic and has an above average glove.

Not that he will match this (would be great if he did) but in looking at him he reminds me of Harmon Killebrew.

His only errors to date at WV at (1) throwing error on a 3-6 (1) error they gave him on a bobbled pick from the SS.
His profile at 1B is good but, that arm strength still makes you guys wonder doesn’t it. You can tell he was busy in the off-season- looks big (lean) and strong.
