Minor League Update

Games of Monday, April 29

by Zach Mortimer


Pitching Prospect of the Day: Henry Owens, LHP, Red Sox (High-A Salem): 5.0 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K; long levers; fastball sits 92-94 with good life; struggled to command his 73-75 mph curveball, which flashed solid-average; good arm speed on a 77-79 mph with changeup that has excellent life and easy plus potential. Owens is still developing, but he caught my eye, and I really like his future; 26.0 IP, 15 H, 6 ER, 8 BB, 30 K in five starts.

Position Prospect of the Day: Christian Walker, 1B, Orioles (Low-A Delmarva): 3-3, 2B, HR, RBI; I will be seeing the former CWS star this week; potential plus hit tool; will need to provide enough power to profile at first base; .360/.440/.512 with 3 HR in 86 at-bats at Low-A.

Other notable prospect performances from April 29:
