Boston's Henry Owens Is MLB.com Top 10 LHP

Owens Delivers For Greenville
For the first time in three years, a Red Sox left-handed pitching prospect had made MLB.com's Top Ten List. Henry Owens, who is ranked as the #9 overall Sox prospect, gets the same rank on the MLB Top Lefty list. Owens is a lanky 6-7 and 200 pounds and was a sandwich pick in 2011. He won 12 games last year in 'A' ball. He has the potential to have three plus pitches—a mid-to-upper 90's fastball, a solid curve and a change-up. He is viewed as a number two starter down the road.
