The tenure of Henry Owens as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks lasted just two weeks, as he was released by the team last Friday in order to make room for Japanese right-hander Yoshihisa Hirano on the 40-man roster.

However, it didn’t take long for Owens to find a new home, as the Los Angeles Dodgers claimed him off waivers from Arizona the same day he was released.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times was the first to report on the matter.

Owens, 25, is a former top prospect for the Boston Red Sox who didn’t appear in a Major League game in 2017.

Further information and in-depth statistics about Owens can be read from our initial article about him after he was claimed from Arizona from the Red Sox.
