A’s prospect Allen to begin 2022 season at Triple-A originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Athletics prospect Nick Allen will begin the 2022 season at Triple-A.

Oakland optioned Allen, left-handed pitcher Zach Logue and right-hander Miguel Romero to the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators on Sunday.

Allen is one of the A’s highest-regarded prospects. He’s listed as the organization’s fifth-best prospect by MLB.com and No. 6 by Baseball America.

In 2021, the former third-round pick batted .319/.374/.471 with nine doubles and six home runs in 50 games for the Double-A Midland RockHounds before getting promoted to Las Vegas in August. Allen didn’t fare as well at the next level, hitting just .243/.302/.301 with 30 strikeouts in 39 games with the Aviators.

Allen, who can play both middle-infield positions, is a candidate to receive a call to the big leagues at some point in 2022. The A’s are expected to start shortstop Elvis Andrus and second baseman Tony Kemp in the middle infield, but Allen gives the organization depth in the minor leagues. Known to flash the leather in the infield, Allen could make his MLB debut sooner rather than later if he can get his bat going at the Triple-A level.

Additionally, the A’s reassigned six non-roster invitees to their minor league camp on Sunday: left-handed pitcher Aaron Brown, right-handed pitchers Ryan Castellani, Chester Pimentel and Austin Pruitt as well as infielder Dermis Garcia and outfielder Buddy Reed.

Oakland, which is 2-6 in Cactus League games this spring, returns to the field at 1:10 p.m. Monday to take on the Los Angeles Angels.
