With the 36th selection of the draft, the Red Sox take the first Southern California arm in lefthander Henry Owens. A teammate of Christian Lopes and Eric Snyder—two other high school prospects for 2011—he lost his only game of the season in the quarterfinals of the Southern Section Division I playoffs.
Tall and lanky, Owens has a fastball that sits 89-91, but he has touched 94 and scouts think he will hit that more consistently as he fills out. He also has a big, sharp curveball.
