The New York Yankees are in the process of acquiring speedy outfielder Greg Allen from the San Diego Padres, according to multiple reports on Wednesday.

Left-hander James Reeves will be sent to the Padres in the deal, per reports.

Allen was designated for assignment by the Padres earlier this week after the club signed South Korean infielder Ha-Seong Kim.

Allen, 27, has a career average of .239 with eight homers, 57 RBIs and 32 stolen bases in parts of four seasons with the Cleveland Indians and Padres.

The switch-hitting Allen stole 21 bases for the Indians in 2018 when he batted .257 with two homers and 20 RBIs in 91 games.

He played in just one game for the Padres -- going 1-for-4 with two walks and a steal -- after being acquired from the Indians on Aug. 31 as part of the deal in which San Diego also acquired right-hander Mike Clevinger.

Reeves, 27, was a 10th-round pick by the Yankees in 2015. He has a 20-7 record and 2.30 ERA in 137 minor league appearances (12 starts).

He made one appearance at Triple-A in 2018 but spent the majority of 2019 at the Double-A level.
