    Henry Owens - So Far He's Untouchable at Portland

    Great to see Henry Owens bounced back from his last outing when he walked 7 batters. He had an excellent outing tonight with a 6 inning, 2 hit, 0 run, 1 BB and 6 K effort. 

    His ERA is down to 1.09.

    Owens could have the biggest jump on prospect ranking at the end of the season.  I won't be surprised if he's named top 30.  We might have the next "big unit".

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I just want you to know that if you expect Lavarway to be the Next Fisk, or even the starting Catcher in Boston.....you're going to be very very very dissapointed.  I don't want to see you dissapointed bill

    Re: Henry Owens - So Far He's Untouchable at Portland

    I've been very happy with Owens success this year, and I don't want to be a donny downer but he might be alittle further away than some here think.

    Unless he harnesses his control, he probably isn't anything more than a #5 starter right now.  NOW, he's young and there is every reason to believe that he will polish up his command, but we shouldn't just assume it will come because we've seen time and time and time again Tall Lefty pitchers dominate their way through the minors only to lay eggs when they get to the big leagues because they can't control their stuff. 

    But the talent is there, and I would expect a jump in prospect ratings.  He should be a consensus top 50 in baseball.

    I think Dan Butler will be protected before Lavarnway.

    Butler, I hope at least gets a call up :

    In 80 games

    BA---.263

    HR---14

    RBI-----44

    OPS---.833

    You can look up Lavarnway---played in 46 PawSox games

    BA----.250

    HR----3

    RBI---23

    OPS---.714

    Batting .280, in 19 games with the Sox---3 RBI---0 HR---.703 OPS

    Obviously Bill if something happened to Salty or Ross--Lava would be there.

    Re: Henry Owens - So Far He's Untouchable at Portland

    Matt Barnes is to be promoted to Pawtucket.  Started the season as the systems top prospect, struggled early on but has really turned it on the last couple months. 

    I've always felt Owens and Barnes were kind of tied into each other being both drafted in the first round in 2011.  Barnes being the higher more solid pick and Owens being the higher risk high reward high school arm.  With Mookie Betts picking it up this draft is looking solid

    Re: Henry Owens - So Far He's Untouchable at Portland

    Have to like what we've seen from Owens this year. During winter I said he was the minor league player I had highest hopes for and has not disappointed. While he still needs more polish, have to love the swing and miss stuff that he has shown to this point. Think potentially a lot higher than a #5 guy, see more of a #2 if he continues on current path [maybe higher?] Next to Boegarts he is the last guy that Ben should consider moving in ANY trade. Have to believe the first 2 names the Marlins would ask for in any trade involving Giancarlo would be Xander and Owens. Also nice to see Barnes finishing strong after a very slow start. The future is bright!

    Mad mac I saw Butler in AA last year and was impressed with his defense.  He threw two runners out stealing and had a hit that evening.  I didn't think he would hit enough to make it to the show but he has done well at AAA.  He might be a Ross type backup and  IMO a better backup than Lavarnway on defensive merit alone.

    Re: Henry Owens - So Far He's Untouchable at Portland

    Very good chance he's more than a #5.  I personally feel given his age at least some improvements to his command will come, he also needs to add more stamina.  His late season drop in velocity could potentially be exploited by better hitters, but I'm not too concerned.

    Yup....good post. He needs A LOT more time down below before  he's ready. Good prospect....but FAR from ready."
