Red Sox Top Prospect Voting #17: The Exciting Henry Owens

Henry Owens seems to have flown a bit under the radar since he was drafted 36th overall. Signed to a seven-figure signing bonus, left-handed, and with a high ceiling, it's not clear exactly why that is.

Already throwing in the low-90s with movement, Owens should be able to build that even higher with some added work as he packs some more muscle onto his 6'7" frame. Already sporting a strong curveball to go with it, Owens will need to develop a third offering if he wants to stick as a starter. He currently sports a changeup, but has also been working on a slider.

Advanced for his age at 19 years old, Owens should be ready to hold his own against competition at whatever lower level the Red Sox choose to place him. If the numbers match the expectations, it should be an easy climb up the charts for Owens.
