Joins A's for stretch run The Athletics recalled Allen from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.
Impact 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.
