Players of Week, July 2-8: Keury De la Cruz & Henry Owens


This week's SoxProspects.com Player and Pitcher of the Week honors went to a pair of Greenville Drive: Keury De la Cruz and Henry Owens.

In 27 at-bats over seven games last week, De la Cruz hit three home runs and two doubles and posted a .370/.433/.778 (10-for-27) line, scoring eight runs and batting in five. He also stole two bases without being caught. On the season De la Cruz is hitting .328/.377/.564 with 14 home runs, 18 doubles and six triples with 56 RBI and has stolen 12 bases. He is currently the nineteenth ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.

Henry Owens's performance last week was true to form in that it featured more strikeouts (seven) than innings pitched (5.0) against Rome (ATL) July 6, but less typically he allowed only a pair of hits and no walks or earned runs. In 15 appearances (14 starts) with Greenville in 2012 Owens owns a 9-2 record and 4.72 ERA, allowing 36 earned runs on 65 hits, with 97 strikeouts versus 29 walks, and has held opposing batters to a .244 average. He is currently the sixteenth ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
