2016

2015

Rowen is a submarine right-hander who debuted with the Rangers in 2014 and made eight appearances following a callup in June. The sample size is too small to offer up much about his ability to handle big league hitters, but Rowen's groundball rate during his time with Texas (59.3%) was actually lower than his 64.5% career rate in the minors. He doesn't throw particularly hard, and Rowen's ability to miss bats hinges more on deception than stuff. The Rangers still have the luxury of sending him back to Triple-A, making it unlikely that he'll begin the season with a role in the big-league bullpen, but it would hardly be surprising to see him log more innings in Texas in 2015.
