|Henry Owens throws rain-shortened no-hitter in Double-A opener |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/14) Red Sox starting pitcher Henry Owens, the team's No. 2 prospect, threw a rain-shortened no-hitter Thursday night.
Owens, pitching for Double-A Portland, struck out nine and walked two batters. he retired the final 16 batters he faced, earning a complete game no-hitter in six innings. 59 of his 86 pitches were called for strikes.
"It was only six innings, so it was kind of a cheap one," Owens said, per The Republican Herald. "But it feels good to get the season started. I was ready to get out of Florida and up here again."

(3/8/14) Promising Red Sox southpaw Henry Owens got some major league experience Saturday and might have learned a bit of humility. The 21-year-old, who has been compared to Dodgers stud Clayton Kershaw, gave up five hits and three earned runs in a loss to Baltimore. He walked two and struck out one.
Owens shined at both the Class A and Double-A levels in 2013 and is expected to reach Triple-A this season if he continues to progress.

(1/19/14) Red Sox starting pitcher Henry Owens has emerged as one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in baseball. Baseball America considers Owens the Red Sox's second-best prospect behind infielder Xander Bogaerts, and MLB.com ranks Owens as the fifth-best left-handed pitching prospect in baseball.
Minor-league teammate Deven Marrero, who played with Owens at two different stops in the minors last season, feels Owens is deserving of the accolades he is receiving.
"I think he's the next (Clayton) Kershaw, to be honest," Marrero told The Providence Journal. "That's how good he is, the potential that he has."
Owens earned an invitation to the Red Sox's rookie development camp this week, which is an invitation usually reserved for players with a realistic chance of reaching the majors during the upcoming season.
The 2011 first-round pick has just two seasons and 48 pro starts under his belt, but Owens was outstanding in 2013, going 11-6 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 26 starts between high Class A and Double-A. He also struck out 11.3 batters per nine innings.
"He probably had to learn in his first year that the stuff is very good and he can throw it in the strike zone and get guys out very effectively," Boston farm director Ben Crockett said. "That was something he made a nice adjustment with in his second full season. He just pounded the strike zone more."
|Prospect Henry Owens having stellar season |

(7/29/13) Red Sox left-handed pitching prospect Henry Owens is in the midst of a stellar season with Class A Salem, MLB.com reports Monday. Boston's No. 4 prospect did not give up a hit in back-to-back performances heading into Sunday's start.
Owens didn't go three straight without giving up a hit, but he did throw seven shutout innings before running into trouble in the eighth. He allowed four runs in the frame and ultimately took the loss. That said, it was his first time in his career pitching into the eighth.
The No. 57-ranked prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB.com, has 123 strikeouts over 104 2/3 innings pitched this season to lead the Carolina League. He also has a 2.92 ERA.

(7/23/13) Red Sox pitching prospect Henry Owens hasn't allowed a hit in the last 15 2/3 innings.
Owens has been pitching at Class A Salem. Owens has struck out 19 over his last two starts. He has a 2.78 ERA in 97 innings.
|Last year, Tony Cingrani and Alex Wood showed the world just how far a deceptive delivery can take a left-handed pitcher. Henry Owens is in the same boat, but with even better stuff. His secondary pitches are further along, particularly his changeup, and the combination has made him practically unhittable in the minors so far. He ranked first among qualifying minor-leaguers with a .177 opponent batting average last season and had a strikeout rate that wasn't too unlike Cingrani's in the minors. Owens has control issues, issuing 4.4 walks per nine innings between three minor-league stops, but if his delivery fools major-league hitters as well as it has minor-league hitters, he won't need to eliminate them completely. The Red Sox are deep at starting pitcher in both the majors and minors, so barring an epidemic of injuries or meltdowns, Owens figures to spend the 2014 season in the minors. And considering he has only six starts above Double-A, it's probably for the best.
