Henry Owens, the one-time top pitching prospect in the Red Sox organization, was claimed off waivers yesterday by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Two weeks ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks—they of former Boston employees Mike Hazen and Torey Lovullo—had claimed Owens from the Red Sox. Arizona needed to clear a roster spot after acquiring Japanese pitcher Yoshihisa Hirano on Friday. So, Owens became expendable. Now, the lefty will be under the tutelage of another Red Sox alum—Dave Roberts.
