Rowen, a righthander described by MiLB.com has a "true submarine style pitcher" who releases the ball just inches off of the ground, was a 22nd round draft choice out of Virginia Tech in the 2010 draft.

Rowen spent the 2012 season pitching for Myrtle Beach in the high-A Carolina League, and is currently pitching in the Arizona Fall League.
