Owens has been timed down the line by ML Scouts, faster than Suzuki. He averages about 3.8 and has been timed as fast as 3.66.
He was the fastest receiver at UCLA at 4.46.
When talking about his arm or power, remember he missed his first year of rookie ball with shoulder surgery and probably had an injured shoulder in college. Last year was his first full year in the minors and he hit .292 with almost 20 doubles. AND 30 SB's.
Now he is 5/14 = .357 combined major and minor training camps and may be better than anyone thnks.This was a great trade for the Sox!
