Diamondbacks' Chris Owings triples, homers in win Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Diamondbacks second baseman Chris Owings went 2 for 3 with a solo home run and an RBI triple in his team's 8-5 win over the Rangers Wednesday.
The triple and the home run were the first of the season for each for Owings, who helped his team build up an 8-1 lead by the eighth inning and held on for a win despite a ninth-inning charge from the Rangers. Owings had managed just two extra-base hits coming into Wednesday's game but is now hitting .220/.250/.360 with six RBI in 50 at-bats while striking out 18 times.
Diamondbacks' Chris Owings looking to find a rhythm at the plate
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Diamondbacks second baseman Chris Owings produced his first multi-hit game of the season Friday against the Giants, producing what he hopes is the spark of an offensive outburst, reports MLB.com.
"A lot of good stuff happened last night," Owings said. "It was one of those nights to kind of get out there and relax a little bit. I put a lot of pressure on myself and I just kind of watched guys have some good ABs and just tried to do the same thing and not try to do too much up there."
Owings is hitting just .152 in 33 at-bats this season, but manager Chip Hale knows he will figure it out eventually.
"We knew he could hit," Hale said. "He knows he could hit. He never let it bother his defense, which is huge for me and the team. Hopefully that'll get him going a little bit numbers-wise. But he's had good at-bats and he's going to keep battling."
Chip Hale plans to play Diamondbacks bench heavily
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale will make sure to give the team's reserve position players plenty of work.
Hale believes in matchups, and he pinch hit for Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed on Opening Day.
Well, you know what, we've got a lot of guys who are starters on this team, so I have to figure out a way to get them all at-bats," Hale said, per MLB.com. "We don't have a DH in this league, so I have to mix and match. It's going to be tough on them at times. We've already made that clear to them that if they're not starting, they're going to get a chance to play late in the game and win the game for us
D-Back's Hill replaces Owings in lineup for second game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Diamondbacks starting second baseman Chris Owings was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Giants in favor of veteran infielder Aaron Hill.
Owings and Hill both started in Monday's season opener. Owings was at second base, while Hill was at third base.
Owings, who won the starting job in spring training, went 0 for 3 with one strikeout, while Hill went 2 for 4 with one run and one strikeout.
D-Backs' Chip Hale: Nick Ahmed, Chris Owings to start in infield
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Nick Ahmed will start at shortstop and Chris Owings will start at second base to begin the season, according to MLB.com. As a result, Aaron Hill will come off of the bench.
Hale said this decision was based on the performance of the three infielders during the spring.
This spring, and prior to Friday night's game against the Cubs, Ahmed has hit .328 with six doubles and five RBI. Owings has hit .244 with seven RBI. Hill has hit just .189 with three RBI.
|2014 summary: As a rookie, Chris Owings was entrusted as the Diamondbacks' starting shortstop, and he delivered the moderate power and speed that he had put on display as a minor leaguer. Owings' counting stats -- six home runs, eight stolen bases, 26 RBI and 34 runs -- were not especially impressive, as he missed more than two months with a shoulder strain. Those playing time constraints also kept Owings outside of the top 25 shortstops in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Especially with Didi Gregorius having been traded to the Yankees, the path is clear for Owings to enjoy regular at-bats as Arizona's starting shortstop.
2015 outlook: Owings didn't have a bad showing for a 23-year-old rookie, and it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine him reaching double digits in home runs and 20 steals in his second season. That's still not enough to make him worth drafting in standard mixed leagues, but he is a solid option in any format deeper than that.
