RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Owens had a strong start to his professional career with Low-A Greenville last season. In 101.2 innings, he posted 12 wins (tops in the Red Sox system) with a 4.87 ERA and an excellent 11.5 K/9. His season ERA was definitely bloated as shown by his 3.49 FIP. A 6-foot-6 left-hander, Owens' strikeout arsenal consists of a fastball, a very good changeup and steady breaking pitches. His productive year in 2012 should lead to him starting 2013 at High-A as one of the brighter pitching prospects in the Red Sox's farm system.
Owens, a 6-7 left-hander, has the pitches to get by in the lower level of the minors, but ultimately it's the command of his fastball that will dictate his success at the upper levels. Owens has a good curve ball and a developing changeup. Like many tall pitchers, consistent mechanics will be the challenge in 2012.
