Player Profile: Stetson Allie

I have one card of Stetson Allie, from 2011 Bowman Prospects.

Playing career: In the second round of the 2010 draft, the Pirates took high school pitcher Stetson Allie, despite the fact that he only started pitching his senior year, and signed him to a $2.25 million signing bonus. In seventeen minor league games, he went 0-3 with a 7.76 ERA, walking 37 batters in 26.2 innings, throwing ten wild pitches and hitting ten batters. In attempt to recoup something from their multi-million dollar investment, the Pirates converted him to a first baseman in 2012, and he hit .213 with 3 HR and 19 RBI in 42 rookie league games.

Where he is now: He will presumably be back in the Pirates organization in 2013.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Stetson A, between Stetson Athletics and Stetson Apparel, referring to the college team in Florida, and Stetson Apparel, the hatmaker. There do not appear to be any other prominent Stetson Allies.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Yonder Alonso.
