Surprise, Arizona —— On Tuesday afternoon, I saw Boston Red Sox left-handed pitcher Henry Owens start an Arizona Fall League game for the Peoria Javelinas on the road against the Surprise Saguaros — Owens’ fourth start of the AFL slate. He lasted five innings, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts, and earned the win on the road in Surprise. Through four AFL starts now after Tuesday, Henry Owens is 3-1 with a 7.71 ERA, and in 14.0 innings pitched for Peoria, he’s allowed 12 earned runs on 15 hits and eight walks with 11 strikeouts in that span.
I was down the line to take video and notes on hitters during the game, but I did walk away with some footage of the Boston Red Sox pitcher on the mound to get a better sense of his mechanics and arm action. You can see that short clip of a view of his pitches from the open-faced (first base) side right here:
Like I said, I was predominantly scouting hitters on Tuesday afternoon (you’ll see loads of high definition video on every hitter from that game and more throughout the next month as we continue to post Arizona Fall League videos into the winter), but I did take a few notes on Henry Owens, too — and I wanted to share those below. In the meantime, please subscribe to the Baseball Census YouTube channel for thousands more baseball prospect videos from the Arizona Fall League and throughout the summer season.
