|Arizona might not be active at trade deadline |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/21/14) It seems unlikely the Diamondbacks will trade shortstop Chris Owings, outfielder A.J. Pollock, catcher Miguel Montero and pitcher Wade Miley by the July 31 trade deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Miley is drawing substantial interest, but general manager Kevin Towers said trading the left-handed starter "doesn't make a whole lot of sense since we're trying to acquire starting pitchers."
Officials with other teams also told Heyman that the Diamondbacks don't seem eager to trade veteran Martin Prado or reliever Brad Ziegler. One general manager interested in trading for Prado believes the Diamondbacks won't deal him because of his leadership and work ethic.
|Chris Owings shut down for three days |

(7/19/14) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings has been shut down for three days after visiting a doctor Friday, MLB.com reports.
"He's been sore, so we shut him down," manager Kirk Gibson said Saturday. "Just trying to get it kind of over the hump."
Owings has been out since June 25 with a left shoulder injury. Owings had been fielding and throwing before the decision was made to give his shoulder a few days to rest.
|Chris Owings still has no timetable for a return |

(7/19/14) Diamondbacks infielder Chris Owings still doesn't have a timetable for a return, according to MLB.com.
"This isn't what you want to be doing," Owings said. "It's tough, watching the team play on the road and just sitting in the dugout." Owings has been out since late June due to a shoulder injury. He's been able to do strengthening exercises and run the bases, but hasn't been able to swing much.
Owings is hitting .277/.313/.458 over 238 at-bats.

(7/17/14) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings won't be activated Friday, according to FoxSports.com.
Owings is dealing with a shoulder injury, and is still having some problems. Those issues could sideline Owings for a couple of weeks. Prior to the injury, Owings was hitting .277/.313/.458 over 238 at-bats.
|Chris Owings still not cleared to resume hitting |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told reporters that shortstop Chris Owings is still not 100 percent from his left shoulder injury. Once he's fully recovered, the team will have him resume hitting, MLB.com reports.
|At a time when walks are valued like hits and home runs aren't exclusive to corner infielders and outfielders, a prospect like Chris Owings barely registers. Even now, you're probably thinking, "I don't want anything to do with that guy." But the fact of the matter is the Diamondbacks want something to do with that guy after watching him hit at every step up the ladder. They've even declared an open competition between him and superior defender Didi Gregorius, who was their main return in the Trevor Bauer deal last year. The questions about Owings' approach and the extent of his upside are legitimate, but he wasn't exactly exposed in his first taste of the majors. He probably won't hit .300 like he did in the minors, having benefited from both the California and Pacific Coast leagues, but if he can put up a Stephen Drew line, providing enough extra-base power to stick despite modest numbers overall, he'll be worth your while in NL-only leagues.
