Question about Henry Owens - Red Sox

Recommended Posts

So, Henry Owens... it just seems like the Sox got an absolute gem at #36 overall. Did he fall to them for some reason, or is this what everyone was talking about when they talked about depth in this draft class?

Scouts, what can you tell us?

This is the depth. There were a handful of reaches made by teams ahead of Boston, and they ended up with an arm that could have easily gone mid- to late-1st Round. He showed good velo early in the season, threw (I believe) two no hitters, and saw a little inconsistency in his stuff in May. He is still a lot of projection, but there is good deception, a nice big breaking curve with bite, and you'd expect the velo to tick-up -- maybe as high as 93-95 -- when all is said and done. He wasn't an elite arm, but he was right in that second tier and was the second best high school lefty in the class.

The video has a couple of his "good" breakers. He's also throwing to Austin Hedges -- the top defensive catcher in the draft:
