BEN ROWEN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rowen, Taijeron, Cecchini, Reynolds, Goeddel Cut From Camp

Per multiple sources including James Wagner of the New York Times, the Mets have made the next round of cuts from camp. Pitchers Ben Rowen and Erik Goeddel, infielders Gavin Cecchini and Matt Reynolds, and outfielder Travis Taijeron have been sent to the Minor Leagues. As the bullpen competition gets tighter, cutting Rowen surprised me. He was a strong candidate and after posting...

Mets PSL Notes: Rowen Unhittable, Familia Back In Camp, Salas Dealing

Mets pitcher Ben Rowen was “basically unhittable” off the mound today in Port St. Lucie, according to Abbey Mastracco on Twitter. Though he has tallied only 11.2 Major League innings, the submariner has gone 25-10 with a 1.85 ERA and 1.022 WHIP in the Minor Leagues since 2010. This could end up being another low-risk high-reward signing by Sandy Alderson that ends up having a...

Featured Post: Ben Rowen Might Be Mets’ Diamond In The Rough

This past Thursday, the New York Mets announced a pair of minor league signings of right-handed pitchers Cory Burns and Ben Rowen.

Dodgers use financial might to put monetary value on draft pick

The Dodgers made a trade last week in which they acquired Ryan Webb, Brian Ward and the 74th selection in the 2015 MLB Draft for Chris O’Brien and Ben Rowen. When it was first reported on Twitter, it didn’t make a ton of sense on the surface.

Ben Rowen and the Unprecedented

Here we are, talking about a pitcher picked up on a minor league deal again. Ben Rowen has sparked some interest since it was announced that the Dodgers picked him up on a minor league deal. Rowen tops out in the lower 80s and has only two pitches, but he does this: That’s Mike Trout, grounding out on an 81mph “fastball” in the place where he likes the ball most. Trout makes...

When I saw Baseball America‘s Matt Eddy tweet that the Dodgers had signed pitcher Ben Rowen and infielder Jarek Cunningham to minor league deals, my first reaction was “who?” followed quickly by “ha, ‘Jarek’ sure is a name.” With no inclination to worry about either, I quickly moved on.

Q&A: Ben Rowen, Texas Rangers Pitching Prospect

It‘s right there on page 458. “Rowen’s pure stuff might be the worst in the 2014 Prospect Handbook.” His Baseball America write-up goes on to say Rowen — the No. 23 prospect in the Texas Rangers system — has “a chance to crack the big league bullpen in 2014.” Ben Rowen is a submariner. The […]
