Henry Owens - Mets RP

Postby Philliebuster » Fri Jul 07, 2006 8:20 am

I'm a met fan and first I heard of this guy was the announcers mentioning he was in the stadium last night. His numbers just look impressive, but probably won't have much fantasy value, except for maybe holds leagues, but his numbers are impressive in the minors...

2006- 25 IN, 1.08 ERA, 51 K's

Anyone know much more about him?

Cole Hamels numbers in the minors were more impresive. Look where that got him!!!

The Mets already have Sanchez and Heilman as their top two set-up guys. Chad Bradford has been quite impressive this year too. Not only that but Oliver and Feliciano have also been top notch this year too. Owens could be great, but he's very far down the depth chart, even in the bullpen, to really get in the game except for super-duper mop up duty.

Also, the Mets play a doubleheader tomorrow and might just need an extra arm for one day. He could be on his way back down.

Well, he got into the game tonight. Fanned the first batter he faced, and got the next two to line out. He had some real zip on the fastball, topping out at 96-97. Tried to throw some breaking pitches but missed with all I think. Possibly he was fired up and missed with the sliders due to adrenaline, but if he can get a breaking pitch over the plate, he could be dangerous. His windup was kinda John Rocker esque. I think this kid can stick around a bit longer than expected...good stuff! ;-D
