Brewers' Greg Allen: Inks minors deal with Milwaukee
Milwaukee signed Allen to a minor-league contract Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Allen elected to become a free agent last Thursday after the Yankees pushed him off their 40-man roster. The 30-year-old is a career .231/.300/.340 hitter in 304 major-league games and will function as organizational outfield depth for the Brewers down the stretch. He's been sent to Triple-A Nashville.... See More ... See Less
Greg Allen: Elects free agency
Allen elected to become a free agent Thursday.
After Allen was reinstated from the injured list July 23, he received just 11 plate appearances prior to being DFA'd by the Yankees on Tuesday. He'll now presumably look to join another organization with a clearer path to major-league playing time, though he may have to settle for a minor-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Designated for assignment
Allen was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Tuesday.
This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for outfield prospect Everson Pereira, who is up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and making his MLB debut Tuesday against the Nationals. Allen, 30, had slashed .217/.333/.478 with one home run and one stolen base through 22 games (28 plate appearances) this year with New York.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Makes return from IL
The Yankees reinstated Allen (hip) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.
New York optioned utility man Oswaldo Cabrera to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's win over the Royals to clear a spot on the 26-man active roster for Allen. The 30-year-old outfielder is back with the Yankees for the first time since early June after missing around six weeks with a right hip flexor strain. He recently wrapped up a productive six-game rehab stint at Triple-A in which he slashed .316/.409/.474, and he could end up getting a look as a short-side platoon option in the outfield now that he's healthy again....

Yankees' Greg Allen: Rehab moved to Triple-A
Allen (hip) has been transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to continue his rehab assignment, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Allen began his rehab assignment at Low-A Tampa on Friday and appears to be nearing activation with this latest move. He's been on the mend from a right hip flexor strain since June 3.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Starting rehab assignment
Allen (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Tampa on Friday.
It's not clear how many rehab games he might require before being activated. Allen is right at the six-week mark of a projected 6-8 week absence due to a right hip flexor strain.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Takes live BP
Allen (hip) faced rehabbing pitcher Nestor Cortes (shoulder) in a simulated game Sunday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
While it's unclear to what extent Allen was able to run the bases -- if at all -- his ability to stand in against live pitching is seemingly a positive sign of progress as he works his way back from a right hip flexor strain. Shortly after Allen was placed on the 10-day injured list June 3, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said the outfielder would likely be out for 6-to-8 weeks. At this stage, Allen looks like he could be trending toward a return at the shorter end of that timeframe.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Out up to eight weeks
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday that Allen will miss 6-8 weeks due to a right hip flexor strain, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Allen landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, and the news that he is facing an extended absence means he could be transferred to the 60-day IL at some point to free up a 40-man roster spot. The veteran outfielder had gone 3-for-14 (.214) prior to getting injured and could be held out until early August.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Shelved with hip strain
The Yankees placed Allen on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hip flexor strain.
Allen injured the hip during Friday's loss to the Dodgers. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that Allen will undergo tests when the team gets back to New York on Monday, but the skipper noted that the outfielder was "pretty sore" and not moving well, according to Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News. Oswaldo Cabrera has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Allen's place on the 26-man active roster.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Exits with hip flexor
Allen left Friday's game against the Dodgers with a hip flexor issue, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. He went 0-for-1 with a walk before exiting.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters after the game that an injured list stint for Allen is a possibility. The veteran outfielder should be considered day-to-day for now, but if he's sidelined for any length of time, Aaron Judge and Isiah Kiner-Falefa would see more action in center field.... See More ...

Yankees' Greg Allen: Hits rare home run
Allen went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-2 win over the Mariners.
Allen launched a first-pitch fastball from Logan Gilbert over the right field wall to begin the fourth to pad the Yankees' lead to 7-0. It was his first home run and first RBI since being added to the roster May 20. The 30-year-old now has three hits in 12 plate appearances with two of the three hits going for extra bases. He'll continue to provide outfield depth for manager Aaron Boone and could see a brief spell of somewhat regular playing time until Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) can return from the injured list....

Yankees' Greg Allen: Makes impact off the bench
Allen went 1-for-1 with a triple, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's 4-1 victory over the Reds.
Allen made his Yankees debut as a pinch runner for Jake Bauers in the seventh inning before nabbing his first stolen base and scoring on Anthony Volpe's two-out double. Allen would then rip a triple in his lone at-bat in the eighth. In 37 Triple-A games so far this season, the 30-year-old outfielder has slashed a respectable .250/.407/.388 while going a perfect 23-for-23 on stolen base attempts. He won't likely see many at-bats in a deep New York lineup, but he could provide a boost as a speed option off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Greg Allen: Added to New York's roster
Allen signed a major-league contract with the Yankees on Saturday.
Allen will replace Aaron Hicks on the major-league roster after Hicks was designated for assignment Saturday. Allen was acquired via trade from the Red Sox on Friday and will quickly join the Yankees in Cincinnati. The switch hitter has yet to appear in a major-league contest this season, but he's produced a respectable .250 average with two homers, 16 RBI and 25 runs with an eye-popping 23 stolen bases over 116 at-bats with Triple-A Worcester in 2023....

Yankees' Greg Allen: Dealt to Bronx Bombers
The Red Sox traded Allen to the Yankees on Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Allen had a brief stint with New York in 2021, recording an .849 OPS through 48 plate appearances. The 30-year-old outfielder currently holds a .250/.407/.388 slash line through 151 plate appearances in Triple-A and will likely remain an organizational depth piece for the Yankees.... See More ...
