Mets Minor Leaguer Throws Seven No-Hit Innings

An article by posted on January 3, 2011

Mets prospect Dylan Owen threw seven no-hit innings in a combined no-hitter, leading Los Criollos to a 5-0 victory over Los Gigantes de Carolina in the Puerto Rican Winter League last night.

Owen walked two and struck out three in his seven hitless innings of work and was making his third appearance this winter.

Owen was a 20th round pick for the Mets in the 2007 MLB Draft and last season he split his time between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Buffalo, and went a combined 7-8 with a 5.04 ERA in 36 games.

By most accounts he is not a highly regarded prospect, and has not appeared on any recent Mets top prospects lists including one that went 50 players deep.

In four minor league seasons, Owen has a 4.19 ERA in 103 games with a 1.351 WHIP.
