Allard began pitching for the Gulf Coast League Braves in August 2015. After three scoreless appearances, he was shut down for back surgery which was described as a "minor back procedure."[13] The Braves sent Allard to extended spring training to start the 2016 season.[14] Allard spent 2016 with both the Rome Braves and the Danville Braves.[15][16][17] In 2017, he pitched for the Mississippi Braves.[18][19][20] The next year Allard was invited to spring training and ultimately began the season with the Gwinnett Stripers.[21][22] Allard pitched ​109 13 innings for the Stripers, recording a 2.80 ERA, 87 strikeouts and 33 walks.[23][24] He was promoted to the major leagues for the first time on July 30, 2018.[25] Allard made his major league debut the next day, pitching five innings against the Miami Marlins, yielding four earned runs on five hits, as well as two walks and one strikeout.[26] Aged 20 at the time of his first appearance, Allard became the youngest left-handed pitcher since Charlie Vaughan in 1966 to record a win in his debut.[27] Allard opened the 2019 season with Gwinnett, going 7–5 with a 4.17 ERA over 110 innings.[28]
