(8/7/14) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings took 30-35 swings off a tee Thursday, according to MLB.com. Owings has been sidelined since June 25 with a shoulder injury and remains without a timetable moving forward.
"I'm starting to feel a lot better," Owings said. "It's just been a slow process. It's not been fun. But … time just hasn't been on our side. So I just have to wait it out."
|Chris Owings still hasn't taken live batting practice |

(7/28/14) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings still hasn't taken live batting practice, according to MLB.com.
Owings has been sidelined since June 25 with a shoulder injury. He's been slow to recover. There's currently no timetable for his return. Owings was hitting .277/.313/.458 over 238 at-bats.
|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.
