Chris Owings to start at SS for Arizona, a potential late-round fantasy pick

Chris Owings hasn’t exactly been tearing the cover off the ball this Spring, and his 20 game cameo in 2013 wasn’t earth shattering either but both were competent enough that it seems that the team will go into the season with Owings  - and not Didi Gregorius – as their starting shortstop. Through his first 47 Spring plate appearances Owings is batting a respectable .273 with...

D-backs envision bright future for Owings

Mike Bell remembers the at-bat as if he took it himself. Chris Owings fell behind in the count, no balls and two strikes, in a game early this season.
