Friday has quickly turned into a milestone day for two of the Red Sox‘ top pitching prospects.
With Anthony Ranaudo set to make his major league debut against the Yankees, the Sox are promoting left-hander Henry Owens to Triple-A Pawtucket, according to multiple industry sources.
Ranked No. 2 by Baseball America on the team’s prospect list in December, Owens has been impressive for Double-A Portland this season. The 22-year-old is 14-4 with a 2.60 ERA in 20 starts, throwing three complete games and two shutouts in the process. Owens has 126 strikeouts to 47 walks with a WHIP of 1.124, and is second on the Sea Dogs with 121 innings pitched.
The 6-foot-7, 200-pound California native was drafted out of high school by the Sox in 2011 in the supplemental first round. He’s in his third year in the Red Sox‘ minor league system after starting out in Greenville in 2012.
