I've seen Owens more than anyone not affiliated with the Pirates. I saw him a lot in 2009 when he was a soft tossing left hander, throwing 88-91 MPH. I saw him in Altoona in the early part of the 2010 season, when he was carrying his success over to the higher levels. I saw him later in the year when he saw his velocity increase to 90-93 MPH, absolutely dominating opposing hitters. Today I saw him throwing 91-93 MPH, and continuing his domination.
Maybe it's time to get excited.
