Owen continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show at SS for the first time at the event. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active but needs to attack balls more and play through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.
