Allen isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Allen will start in center field and will bat seventh Sunday against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
He'll be included in the lineup for a fourth consecutive game after reaching base in seven of his 11 plate appearances over the previous three contests while providing quality defense in the outfield. With Oscar Mercado off to a 1-for-25 start to July and Jake Bauers (86 wRC+) and Tyler Naquin (93 wRC+) both performing at below-average levels this season, Allen could see steady at-bats while he's shining both at the plate and in the field.
Allen went 4-for-6 with a triple, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored Sunday against the Reds.
Allen put on a show at the dish in the series finale, capping off a four-hit afternoon with a two-run blast to right center field. After being recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, he's showing early on that he belongs in the big leagues.
