Off the top of my head, I think he had 70 ks in 40 IP in AAA.
What are the chances that Owens settles down and keeps the closer role?
It was AA. He didn't spend much time in AAA.
As to keeping the closers role, it depends on performance. If he blows a couple of saves, he will be removed quickly, but he can just as quickly solidify himself as the closer if he can string off a month or two without blowing any.
