Owings' bruised left shoulder is still not feeling 100 percent, and he won't be cleared to swing a bat until it gets there. Obviously it's looking like he won't be ready to return from the disabled list later this week when he's first eligible. Jul 7 - 7:20 PM

Diamondbacks placed SS Chris Owings on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with a sore left shoulder.

Owings is set to have his shoulder examined by the team doctor on Monday, but the club isn't waiting to put him on the disabled list. More will obviously be known about a potential timetable after he's examined. Nick Ahmed has replaced Owings on the roster and should share time at shortstop with Didi Gregorius.

Chris Owings went 3-for-4 with a double, triple, RBI and run scored in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Brewers.

Arizona only took tonight's game in the three-game series, but Owings was hardly to blame, going 6-for-11 (.545) with three extra-base hits against Milwaukee pitching. The 22-year-old is easily hitting well enough to fend off Didi Gregorius at shortstop, slashing .283/.321/.465 with six homers and 20 RBI over 68 games.

Chris Owings went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Owings contributed to his club's slow climb back into the ballgame, as his seventh-inning homer off of Scott Feldman cut the Astros' lead to 4-3. It was his sixth blast of the season. Owings has slumped recently, and he's now slashing .269/.308/.442 with 19 RBI and six stolen bases.

Chris Owings is not in Monday's lineup against the Astros.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has used a rotation between shortstop and second base since Didi Gregorius has come up from the minors, so Owings has sat in four out of the last eight games. It's a frustrating development for fantasy owners.
Jun 9 - 5:46 PM

Chris Owings went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, and four RBI in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

It's Owings eighth three-hit game of the season. He took Chris Martin deep for a two-run shot in the eighth inning, padding the D'Back lead to 9-6. The shortstop has had a decent season, slashing .285/.323/.462 with 16 RBI and six stolen bases.
Jun 6 - 12:24 AM

Chris Owings belted a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Owings' blast two batters into the game got the scoring going, and the D'Backs eventually tallied the winning run in the ninth inning on an error. The rookie shortstop has moved up in the batting order of late, as he's hit second in each of the last six games. Owings' .267/.313/.413 batting line isn't anything special, but he's hit three homers and stolen six bases.
