Owen continues to work hard and improve his game at C/RHP. Behind the plate, he sits in a low/athletic stance with fluid footwork. He receives pitches with soft hands and has a quick transfer to throw. Increasing arm velocity (long toss program) will help Owen gun out more runners at the next level. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber with a 3-pitch mix. He delivers from a 3/4 arm slot with loose arm action and pounds the zone with strikes. Using more of his lower 1/2 will increase his arm velocity. At the plate, Owen is a switch hitter. He has smooth rhythm and drives pitches from gap to gap. This 2022-grad is a gamer and will be a player to watch.

Owen is a very coachable player who works very hard on his game. Behind the dish, he sits in well presenting a low target and receiving with a soft mitt. Exchange is smooth as he gains ground toward 2B - pop times of 2.42. He is a vocal leader on the field and takes charge of his team. With the bat, Owen currently shows more natural from the right side. He has rhythm in his hands, barrels the ball up and drives it back up the middle of the field. More lower 1/2 drive will help to increase pop off of the barrel. Increased strength will also come as he physically matures. On the mound, Stewart remains composed and pounds the zone with strikes. Separation is smooth as he repeats well. FB now tops at 58 mph. He finishes complete and fields the position well, showing his athleticism. A 2022 grad - Owen has the makeup of a player that is determined to work hard to get to where he wants to be.
