In 2003, he began the season at New Britain where he hit .306-1-16. He was promoted to Rochester in June and recorded an 8-game hitting streak. He also hit homeruns in consecutive games and five of his six home runs tied or gave the Red Wings the lead. He was recalled to Minnesota on August 20 and made his major league debut, September 9 vs. Anaheim. He made his first major league hit, off of Jamie Walker, September 26 at Detroit.

In 2004, he again began the season at New Britain where he recorded another 8-game hitting streak. He hit homeruns twice in consecutive games and threw out 22 of 59 (37%) runners attempting to steal. He played for Grand Canyon in the Arizona Fall League.

Despite some success in the minors, Rob is still a mid-level Twins prospect. Rob is likely destined for Triple-A after the signing of Mike Redmond and the expected return of super-star Joe Mauer. Rob struggles making consistent contact and didn't distinguish himself in the Arizona Fall League. He focuses himself on his defense saying "I take pride in my defense," Bowen said. "Anything on offense is a bonus. For me, it's defense first." Unfortunately for him, the Twins need the defense and a super strong bat.
Rob does have decent pop, but he is stuck about five deep on the Twins' depth chart. He might eventually develop into a decent major-league catcher down the road, but not this year.
