Red Sox | Henry Owens sent down to work on command

Sat, 07 May 2016 19:37:11 -0700

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.

Red Sox | Henry Owens hurls quality start

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:38:22 -0700

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.

Red Sox | Henry Owens will get another start

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 17:27:26 -0700

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.

Red Sox | Henry Owens struggles in start

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 22:57:17 -0700

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.

Astros | Colby Rasmus batting fourth

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 17:00:48 -0700

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.

Red Sox | Henry Owens starting vs. Astros Sunday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:29:09 -0700

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.

Red Sox | Roenis Elias, Henry Owens to get call

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 09:19:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Roenis Elias is going to be called up by the team Friday, April 22. The Red Sox also plan on promoting SP Henry Owens "later in the weekend."

Fantasy Tip: That's two starting pitchers Boston will be bringing up, yet only one rotation spot exists after the injury to Joe Kelly. A replacement hasn't been named yet but it looks like it will be one of these two youngsters. Both have decent ceilings, as Elias was pretty good during his time with the Mariners and offers a fine strikeout rate as well. Owens is still developing but looked solid at times as a rookie last year, and will come with upside if he can stick.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly could miss considerable time

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:10:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (shoulder) could miss considerable time with a right shoulder impingement. 3B Travis Shaw was out four to six weeks before he resumed throwing with a shoulder impingement before winter ball last November. Kelly was clocked at only 89-90 mph to begin the game after being ranked seventh in the majors in average fastball velocity (95.4 mph) last year. SP Henry Owens could be the likely choice to take Kelly's spot in the rotation, or Boston could consider SP Roenis Elias, who has a 3.86 ERA in two starts for Class AAA Pawtucket but has seven walks in 9 1/3 innings. Owens has allowed just two runs in 18 innings in three starts at Pawtucket, but he's walked 10 hitters.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't look good for Kelly and his owners. In many mixed leagues, you can probably drop him for healthier and more productive arms. Owens has more upside with his dominance, but both he and Elias can be inconsistent because of their shaky control. Whoever gets the nod will be worth a cheap flyer in deep mixed and AL leagues.

Red Sox | Henry Owens an option for Boston?

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 16:36:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens has a 1.00 ERA with 23 strikeouts and 10 walks in 18 innings for Class AAA Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: Owens was a mixed bag in his first taste in the majors last year (4-4, 4.57 ERA). He showed good dominance but had command issues with the Red Sox. The former first-rounder also allows plenty of fly balls, which could really hurt him at Fenway. He could get the call to join the rotation depending on the significance of Joe Kelly's arm injury. If Owens comes up, he's worth a flyer in deep mixed and AL leagues. Keep tabs on the situation.

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 07:04:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens and SP Brian Johnson were optioned to Class AAA Pawtucket Thursday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: Both have some AL-only value and could be called up if an injury occurs.
