Red Sox's Henry Owens looking to make roster out of camp
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2:02 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Henry Owens understands the opportunity he has this spring training.
Looking to build off of his 2014 season, in which he split time with minor-league affiliates Portland and Pawtucket, Owens feels like he's close to cracking Boston's opening day roster.
"Last year was about just trying to get my feet wet," Owens said, per CSN New England. "I really didn't know anything, or what to expect. This year, I have a better sense of everything.''
With Portland, Owens went 14-4 in 20 starts, posting a 2.60 ERA. With Pawtucket, he went 3-1 with a 4.03 ERA.
Owens is expected to pitch against the Marlins on Friday.
Red Sox's Henry Owens impresses during camp
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Red Sox pitcher Henry Owens impressed during batting practice recently, according to the Boston Herald.
Owens hadn't faced big league hitters since last spring training, and had something to prove. While Owens didn't have great fastball command during the session, his changeup was spot on.
"Great deception, hard to pick up," catcher Ryan Hanigan said. "He got me on the changeup today because you can’t see the spin. It looks just like his fastball. That’s a huge advantage."
Pitching coach Juan Nieves agreed, but said he wasn't sure whether Owens was ready for the majors just yet. "Is anybody ready to come to the big leagues?" Nieves said. "I don’t know. We don’t know until they get there and experience the competition."
The 22-year-old Owens enters the year as the team's second-best prospect according to Baseball America. He posted a 2.94 ERA over two minor-league levels last year.
GM indicates that Henry Owens will not be promoted this season
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/14) Red Sox premier pitching prospect Henry Owens will not be promoted to the bigs this season, the Providence Journal has claimed.
That is the speculation fueled by general manager Ben Cherington, who downplayed the possibility of Owens coming up.
"I think he's in a good spot," Cherington said. "There are some things he'll get out of pitching the rest of the way at Triple-A. They're making a playoff push themselves. We'd like to see him finish out the year there and try to help them get in the playoffs.
"He's obviously a guy who is important to us long-term, but I think that part of finding out as much as we can about our group of young pitchers is making sure there's a role for as many of those guys as possible. We have to balance that out."
Owens, who turned 22 years old on July 21, has been dynamite for Triple-A Pawtucket this season. He boasts a 14-4 record and 2.60 ERA with 126 strikeouts in 121 innings.
Red Sox won't 'rule out' promotion for Henry Owens
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/14) Even though Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Henry Owens just joined the roster at Triple-A Pawtucket, manager John Farrell hasn't ruled out the left-handed pitcher joining the major-league roster this season.
"He's not on our (40-man) roster, but if the need were to arise or he dominates at the Triple-A level, I wouldn't rule it out," Farrell told MLB Network Radio Tuesday.
Owens tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings in his Triple-A debut Monday. He allowed two hits and three walks, while striking out nine. He went 14-4 with a 2.60 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 121 innings at Double-A before his promotion.
Report: Henry Owens on the way to Pawtucket
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) The Red Sox have promoted premier pitching prospect Henry Owens to Triple-A Pawtucket, sources have told WEEI.com.
The 22-year-old southpaw earned the promotion by compiling a 12-4 record and 2.60 ERA. He has yielded just 89 hits in 121 innings with 126 strikeouts. Given the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey on Thursday, Owens could be on the fast-track to Boston.
