With its sub 90mph velocity, Owens is fighting the tough fight from the get-go. He has to hope that his Four-Seamer's "rise" is good enough that he can rely on a 50% flyball rate to get him through innings...and avoid that horrendous 23.1% HR/FB rate he had last season.
10.4% Thrown 70.9 MPH
Owens' Curveball is a "Get-Me-Over" pitch that he'll occasionally throw as a surprise third strike to catch batters dozing.
3.1% Thrown 79.8 MPH
Owens' Slider is a rare sight to see, and lacks the polish to consider it as a true member of his repertoire.
31.3% Thrown 76.9 MPH
Owens' best pitch might be his Changeup, which earned at least a 20% whiff rate in each of his two seasons. If his Fastball can work with precision, this pitch will open the door for a decent amount of strikeouts.
