Red Sox SP prospect Henry Owens still ironing out control issues
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/19/15) Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Henry Owens hasn't gotten his control problems squared away at Triple-A Pawtucket, as he is walking a career-high 5.5 batters per nine innings.
It's not exactly the stat anyone would want to see from one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in baseball, but it doesn't appear the Red Sox are pushing the panic button when it comes to Owens.
“It’s not alarming to me. I understand why it could be alarming to someone else, but I’ve had this conversation many times over the last two years,” Pawtucket pitching coach Bob Kipper said, per The Boston Globe. “He’s frustrated about where things probably stand early in the season. But with that said, he’s really encouraged with where things are beginning to head.
“He’s 22. I don’t think any of us have that crystal ball of when something is going to happen. But when there are certain things in place -- work ethic, discipline, commitment, guys doing the right thing day in, day out -- then over time there’s going to be development.”
Red Sox SP Henry Owens having some control issues at Triple-A

|(5/1/15) Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Henry Owens is having some control issues to start the season for Triple-A Pawtucket. The highly touted pitching prospect has a 4.29 ERA and 1.43 WHIP through four starts thanks largely to 17 walks in 21 innings.
The left-hander, who is considered a top-50 prospect by MLB.com (No. 19) and Baseball America (No. 44), has totaled 19 strikeouts. He has allowed 11 runs (10 earned), 13 hits and two home runs.
Red Sox SP Henry Owens struggles vs. Blue Jays Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Red Sox starting pitcher Henry Owens was hit hard by the Blue Jays Thursday, giving up five earned runs on five hits and one walk in three innings while striking out one and serving up two home runs, but he remains confident that he can have success at the big-league level, the Boston Herald reports.
"Absolutely," Owens said. "I feel like I can give the team a chance to win every fifth day. Today, I obviously didn’t show characteristics of that, but I’m still working out some cobwebs and getting ready for the season."
Owens left a 79-mph changeup up in the zone to Jose Bautista, who knocked the pitch well beyond the left-field fence.
"I think his velocity is probably consistent to where it’s been over the last year or so," manager John Farrell said. "He’s starting to flash some 93s in there. But velocity isn’t everything. What he’s recognizing is that he’s got to make hitters honest because they all know he has a very good changeup and sometimes hitters go in and look for it. Bautista’s at-bat, particularly."
Owens had allowed just two earned runs in seven innings coming into Thursday's start but finished the day with a 6.30 spring ERA. He's competing to break camp with the team.
Red Sox pitching prospect Henry Owens makes first start of spring
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Red Sox pitcher Henry Owens showed why many believe he could be the first call up off the season from the minors Saturday. The top pitching prospect threw three hitless innings and added three strikeouts for Boston.
"He's on such a good developmental path," Red Sox manager John Farrell said to MLB.com. "It's kind of exciting to watch a young guy starting to come into his own."
Despite struggling with his control a bit, Owens was happy with his overall performance Saturday.
"I've been throwing it for strikes early in the count and late in the count and getting strikeouts with it, putting more power behind it, so it's been a good weapon," Owens said.
