Owens returns

Henry will rejoin the team today after spending time on the DL.

Reliever Henry Owens was reinstated Thursday with Lee Gardner being optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque.

Owens, placed on the disabled list on May 9 with tendinitis in his right shoulder, had three rehab outings for Jupiter. He will return in a setup role.

"I'm going to pitch in whatever role I'm asked to pitch in," Owens said.

Gardner was 1-2 with a 3.58 ERA.

It will be good to have him back, the team can always use another reliable, hard throwing pitcher in relief.

Welcome back, Henry!
