  • Mets' Austin Allen: Receives invite from Mets

    Allen signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Allen's 2023 season was spent at Triple-A Jacksonville in the Marlins organization, where he posted an .802 OPS with 23 homers in 91 games. The 30-year-old has seen spot action in the majors over parts of four seasons, collecting a .540 OPS across 127 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Austin Allen: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Marlins reassigned Allen to minor-league camp Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Allen joined the Marlins as a non-roster invitee in spring training and appeared in 12 games, batting .217 with one homer, five RBI and two runs scored over 23 at-bats. The 29-year-old has played in 23 total major-league contests in the last three seasons and seems unlikely to make much of an impact with the Marlins in 2023.

    Allen cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Designated for assignment

    Allen was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Monday.

    Allen spent time on the COVID-19 injured list in mid-April, but he saw sporadic playing time when healthy. Over five games, the 28-year-old went just 1-for-14 with a run, a walk and nine strikeouts. He'll now lose his spot on the 40-man roster, and Christian Bethancourt is in line to serve as the No. 2 catcher while Stephen Vogt (knee) is on the IL.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Reinstated from COVID-19 IL

    Allen (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Allen spent just under a week away from the team, but he'll be available off the bench in Thursday's series finale against Baltimore. The 28-year-old has appeared in two games this year and has gone 1-for-6 with a run, a walk and four strikeouts.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Allen was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an undisclosed reason Monday.

    Allen appears to be unvaccinated since he was placed on the restricted list prior to the Athletics' weekend series in Toronto. While it's not clear whether he's tested positive for COVID-19, he'll be forced to spend some time away from the team to begin the club's home series against the Orioles.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Placed on restricted list

    Allen (undisclosed) was placed on the restricted list ahead of Friday's series opener at Toronto, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    It appears Allen is unvaccinated and unable to travel to Canada, so he, along with relievers A.J. Puk and Kirby Snead, will move to the restricted list for this weekend. Christian Bethancourt was added to the major-league roster for catching depth in Toronto behind Sean Murphy and Stephen Vogt.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Gets turn behind dish

    Allen will start at catcher and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Rays, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Top backstop Sean Murphy is getting a day off behind the plate and is serving as Oakland's designated hitter in the series finale, allowing Allen to pick up his second start of the season at catcher. In his lone prior appearance in Sunday's win over the Phillies, Allen went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Returns to lineup

    Allen (illness) will bat third and start behind the plate Friday against the White Sox, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Allen was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to illness, but he's ready to go again two days later. The minor setback shouldn't impact his readiness for Opening Day, though there's no guarantee he breaks camp with the team after Stephen Vogt was signed as competition for the backup catcher spot in late March.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Falls ill Wednesday

    Allen was scratched from the lineup Wednesday for the Athletics' Cactus League game against the Reds due to an illness, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Allen can be viewed as day-to-day, but the illness an untimely development as he looks to win a spot on the Athletics' Opening Day roster as the No. 2 catcher behind Sean Murphy. Christian Bethancourt was added to Wednesday's lineup as a replacement for Allen behind the dish.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Sent back to Las Vegas

    Allen was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Allen joined the A's when rosters expanded Sept. 1, and logged one hit while making two pinch-hit appearances last week. He'll return to Las Vegas with Seth Brown (illness) being activated from the COVID-19 IL but figures to be a candidate to return should Oakland suffer an injury to a position player.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Joins A's for stretch run

    The Athletics recalled Allen from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Allen will serve as the Athletics' No. 3 catcher during the final month of the season, providing depth behind Sean Murphy and Yan Gomes. The 27-year-old wowed with a .952 OPS at Triple-A while striking out in only 18.3 percent of his plate appearances in 71 games, but he's unlikely to pick up more than a handful of starts in September while the Athletics look to lock down a playoff spot.

  • Athletics' Austin Allen: Sent down to alternate site

    The Athletics optioned Allen to their alternate training site Sunday.

    Allen served as the Athletics' 29th man for the club's doubleheader Saturday against the Astros. While Oakland hasn't played since the twin bill after a member of the organization tested positive for COVID-19, the team still needed to cut down to 28 players in advance of its next game, so Allen found himself as the odd man out. Jonah Heim will stick with the big club as the No. 2 catcher behind top option Sean Murphy.
