Lucas Gale Allen (born August 4, 1978, in Covington, Georgia) is an outfielder, who has played in Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies.


A graduate of Newton High School, Allen was signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers as an amateur free agent in 1996 and was assigned to the Great Falls Dodgers for the 1996 season. After starting the 1997 season with the San Bernardino Stampede in Single-A, he was promoted to the Double-A San Antonio Missions, where he played until 2000. Started 2001 for the Jacksonville Suns (where he was selected as a Southern League All-Star outfielder) and then was promoted to the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s. In 2002 with Las Vegas, he hit .329 with 12 homers and 78 RBIs, leading to a September call-up to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Allen made his Major League Baseball debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers on September 10, 2002 as a pinch hitter against the San Francisco Giants, drawing a walk. He recorded his first hit (a double) on September 14 against Kent Mercker of the Colorado Rockies.

He was traded by the Dodgers to the Rockies on January 27, 2003 in exchange for outfielder Jason Romano. Spent most of the year with the Rockies Triple-A team, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox and then went 0 for 2 as a September call-up for the Rockies.

Left the Rockies as a free agent after the season and played for several minor league teams, playing from 2004-06 for the Triple-A affiliates of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Anaheim Angels, San Diego Padres and Boston Red Sox. In 2007, he started the season with the Jacksonville Suns, back in the Dodgers system, but hit only .236 with 1 home run in 33 games and was released. In 2008, he played for the New Jersey Jackals in the Can-Am League.
