GM indicates that Henry Owens will not be promoted this season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) 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
(8/5/2014) 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
(8/1/2014) 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.


Henry Owens throws rain-shortened no-hitter in Double-A opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) 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."


Henry Owens struggles in start for Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) 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.


Teammate feels Henry Owens is the next Clayton Kershaw


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) 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."
