Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens was demoted to Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, May 6, and manager John Farrell said Owens needs to work on commanding his fastball with more consistency. In a corresponding move, SP Sean O'Sullivan's contract was selected.
Fantasy Tip: Owens is just 23 years old, so he has more than enough time to figure things out and realize his potential. That being said, it is tough to justify holding on to him outside of AL-only leagues.

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a no-decision against the New York Yankees Friday, April 29, with three walks and three strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Although Friday's outing was promising, Owens has only thrown four quality starts in 13 appearances at the MLB level since making his debut last season. He possesses a great deal of potential and should remain rostered in AL-only and dynasty fantasy leagues but his lack of consistency makes him a risky play in daily contests.

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens will get another start.
Fantasy Tip: One of the top pitching prospects in the organization, Owens got his 2016 campaign out to a rocky start Sunday night, when he was knocked out of the game by the Houston Astros in the fourth inning. While Owens has some potential, he's yet to exhibit any sort of consistency, so owners might want to wait until he gets into a rhythm before plugging him into starting lineups.

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens made his first start of the 2016 season Sunday, April 24, against the Houston Astros, but he labored for most of the outing. Owens gave up three runs, five hits and four walks over 3 1/3 innings while recording four strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Owens threw just 46 of his 86 pitches for strikes in the no-decision. There will certainly be better days, as is evidenced by his 7.1 K/9 ratio last season in 11 appearances. He remains worthy of a roster spot in AL-only play, deeper mixed formats and DFS leagues.

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus will bat fourth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Sunday, April 24.
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus has just five at-bats against lefties this year, but as well as he has been swinging the bat, you can easily justify leaving him in your lineup despite the matchup.

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens is starting against the Houston Astros Sunday, April 24.
Fantasy Tip: Owens boasts plenty of upside and got 11 starts (4.57 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 7.1 K/9) under his belt in 2015, but facing a deep and dangerous lineup shouldn't have anyone excited about rostering him Sunday. Owens is a speculative grab in deep mixed leagues because he could stick in the rotation with Joe Kelly out, but it is likely best to take a wait-and-see approach with the youngster.
