Owen is a thin and athletic 2024 1B prospect that worked hard all week. At 1B, Owen has a strong arm and makes accurate throws. He needs to continue to be on time with his pre step, present a low/early glove, and works from the ground up. He needs to properly work off the bag and know where to go on cuts offs. At the plate, Owen starts in a squared stance and stays flat to the ball. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, get his front foot down on time, and attack the inside part of the ball. He works the whole field but needs to be more aggressive on fastballs. Owen will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
