Ender Inciarte returns to Diamondbacks lineup


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Ender Inciarte is returning to the Diamondbacks' lineup on Sunday in the series-finale against the Cubs. 

Inciarte had a day off on Saturday. He's hit just .250 over his past four games. Inciarte will bat leadoff. 

Yasmany Tomas has the day off and infielder Aaron Hill will play third base. Catcher Jordan Pacheco is back in the lineup Chris Owings will play second base. 


Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings still up-and-down at the plate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Hot-and-cold Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings was hot early this week. Now he's cold.

Owings has remained inconsistent all season. The latest example was a 12-for-22 outburst followed by his current 2-for-17 slide. It all adds up to a mediocre .252/.273/.367 slash line with just 10 RBI in 139 at-bats.

He is also striking out at a much higher rate in 2015 than he did a year ago. Owings has fanned 35 times.


Yasmany Tomas scratched from D-Backs' lineup with illness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Diamondbacks third baseman Yasmany Tomas was a late scratch Friday night because of an illness, reports the team's official website.

Tomas was set to hit fifth before he was scratched. Instead, second baseman Chris Owings will bat fifth, with Cliff Pennington playing third and batting sixth.

Tomas is hitting .288/.344/.322 with eight RBI in 21 appearances.

Arizona is favored (-120) at Philadelphia, per VegasInsider.com.


Diamondbacks reshuffle lineup for Monday's game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) The Diamondbacks have made multiple adjustments to their starting lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, the team announced. 

Ender Inciarte, Yasmany Tomas and Chris Owings are back in the starting lineup, moving Mark Trumbo, Cliff Pennington and Nick Ahmed to the bench. Trumbo has started four of the last six games for Arizona. 

The Diamondbacks are currently the underdogs (+135) against the Nationals on Monday.


Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings still inconsistent at plate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings managed one seven-game tear in late April. That has not been good enough to consider him productive in 2015.

Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings benched in Mile High City


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Struggling Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings is set to sit Tuesday night in Colorado. Nick Ahmed will play his position.

Tuffy Gosewich, Chris Owings, Nick Ahmed out of Diamondbacks' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) The Diamondbacks left three starters out of Saturday's starting lineup. 

Catcher Tuffy Gosewich sits, in place of Jordan Pacheco, who starts his fifth game and bats seventh in the lineup. 

Aaron Hill makes his fifth start of the year at second base, in place of Chris Owings. Hill has started twice in the last four games. He hits sixth in the order. 

Shortstop Nick Ahmed is out of the lineup as well. Cliff Pennington starts ahead of him for the third time this season and hits eighth. 


Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock, Chris Owings atop lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock is leading off and shortstop Chris Owings is batting second in Tuesday's matchup with the Rockies.

The alignment is the same from last Tuesday, which was the last time Ender Inciarte was out of the lineup as he is against the Rockies. However, Owings getting just his second start of the season at shortstop, having seen most of his action at second base.

The Diamondbacks are favorites (-115) against the Rockies Tuesday.


Diamondbacks' Chris Owings triples, homers in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) 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
(4/18/2015) 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
(4/7/2015) 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
(4/7/2015) 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
(4/3/2015) 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. 


Diamondbacks manager Hale not ready to name starting shortstop


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Diamondbacks manger Chip Hale may favor shortstop Nick Ahmed as the starter when the season begins, but contrary to a report, he is not ready to give him that title just yet, reports MLB.com.

"To name him the starter is hard to do, because we still have camp left," Hale said. "I'm not ready to do that. He's been very impressive. [Gammons] was assuming because of the way we were glowing about [Ahmed]."

The organization still likes what they have seen from Chris Owings, who could still be in the mix.

"We knew Owings, if he was healthy, was going to play somewhere," general manager Dave Stewart said. "We knew he was going to be a starter for us."


Diamondbacks' Chris Owings tests shoulder in "B" game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings saw his first action of the spring Thursday, making four plate appearances, getting some chances on defense and even sliding into home plate.

"It was good to get out there and play the game and not hesitate," Owings said after playing in a "B" game Thursday, per MLB.com. "Take full swings and get some ground balls. Slide at home. Those are all things that I've got to do for the first time, get it out of the way and then do it all over again tomorrow."

Owings is working his way back from offseason surgery on his left shoulder. He's made adjustments at the plate since suffering the injury, keeping both hands on the bat during his follow-through to reduce the stress on the left shoulder.

"I think that's a big adjustment putting it into games," Owings said. "I've been doing BP, but not thinking about it, I had one swing that was a slider away that I kind of wailed at a little bit. I think once I start doing that every time it'll be good."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings was able to take batting practice on Friday, according to MLB.com.

Owings is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, and has been limited early in camp. Manager Chip Hale said he was happy with Owings progress, and noted it was a big day for the infielder.

"Everything he's done has been right on time," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "We've slowed him down, because it's important that that swing is right. This was a huge day for him."

Owings will likely go through another round of BP before he's ready for game action. The team may also opt to give him at-bats in minor-league games before using him during actual spring training games.

The 23-year-old Owings hit .261/.300/.406 over 310 at-bats last season. He's expected to open the year as the team's starting shortstop.
