WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates drafted Alldred in the 24th round in 2018, though he was just the second left-handed pitcher they selected.  He made great strides on the mound at Cincinnati.  As a freshman he barely pitched and was not successful when he did.  He saw more time as a sophomore, though he walked a lot of batters.  As a junior in 2018, he put things together, posting a 3.95 ERA as a starter, with an 85:29 SO:BB ratio and a .237 BAA in 79.2 innings.  He throws upper-80s, and adds a slider and changeup.  He signed quickly after the draft.

2018
A-:  0-1-1, 1.63 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 27.2 IP, 2.9 BB/9, 9.8 K/9
A:  0-1-0, 3.86 ERA, 2.14 WHIP, 2.1 IP, 3.9 BB/9, 7.7 K/9

Alldred spent most of his debut season pitching out of the Morgantown bullpen.  He put up impressive numbers.  Opponents managed only a 200/270/220 line against him, and that’s including two outings at West Virginia at the end of the season, one of which didn’t go well.  Alldred had only a minimal platoon split.

2019
A:  4-1-3, 4.20 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 60.0 IP, 3.6 BB/9, 9.5 K/9

Alldred pitched in relief for Greensboro all year.  He had a good K rate, but was only moderately effective, allowing opponents to bat 263/346/393.  The league average was 239/316/362.  He had no platoon split.

Alldred hasn’t shown nearly the kind of dominance you’d want from a relief prospect, and he doesn’t profile as a lefty specialist.
