Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Pirate prospect Stetson Allie made his long-awaited debut last night for the State College Spikes.
The hard-throwing right-hander had a so-so debut.
Allie’s pitching line was 2.1 innings, three runs, three strikeouts and three walks in 2.1 innings. All three of the walks came in the third inning.
According to reports, Allie was throwing between 90-94 MPH, with the focus on his command.
The reason it took so long for Allie to make his pro debut was command issues.
Allie has no problem with the fastball but needs work on throwing off-speed pitches for strikes.
The Pirates selected Allie in 2nd round of last year’s MLB Draft.
The organization views Allie, Jameson Tallion, Luis Heredia and Gerrit Cole as the rotation of the future.
