Meet the 2011 Red Sox draft picks
Henry OwensPicked: Compensation A, No. 36
He's from: Edison High School in Huntington Beach, Calif.
Position: Lefthanded pitcher
About him: Was a two-time Sunset League pitcher of the year, going 12-0 with a 1.03 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 78 2/3 innings as a senior. He went 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA and with USA Baseball's 18U national team last summer.
Red Sox scouting director Amiel Sawdaye says: "Lefthanded, and obviously a guy we project to be a middle-of-the-rotation guy. Throws three pitches for strikes, advanced pitchability. A guy who has the ability to command his breaking ball and also throw a changeup."
