Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens is the first 14-game winner in Double-A Portland history.
Fantasy Tip: Owens could be on the fast track to either Triple-A Pawtucket, or perhaps even the big club, if the team trades John Lackey, Jon Lester, or both, before the July 31 trade deadline. He has had an impressive season, and has emerged as a strong stash candidate in AL-only fantasy leagues and long-term keeper formats.

Boston Red Sox P Henry Owens is receiving a promotion to Double-A Portland, according to an industry source. The left-hander recently enjoyed a streak of 19 1/3 hitless innings, spanning four starts, for Class A Advanced Salem. He's compiled an 8-5 record with a 2.92 ERA, 10.6 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 this year.
Fantasy Tip: Owens is an intriguing prospect for the BoSox, but one has to wonder if his lanky (6-foot-6, 205 pounds) frame will continue to be a hindrance to his control. He, like Andrew Miller did, may have a tough time sticking as a starter.
