Diamondbacks | Chris Owings may play in rehab games

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 12:55:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) may play in some rehab games this week for the Arizona League Diamondbacks. Manager Chip Hale said the team hopes Owings will be able to be activated from the disabled list during their upcoming homestand.

Fantasy Tip: Owings likely will have to play in a few rehab games before he is ready to return. It is not known how he will be used when he returns, but he should see decent playing time. Owings has value in NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings to DL

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 14:03:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF/2B Chris Owings (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Owings was pretty much pushed out of a position with Peter O'Brien's callup. Yasmany Tomas will likely share a bit of time with Michael Bourn, but Bourn probably won't play enough to make him a viable option outside of NL-only leagues. Owings will be relegated to NL-only depth when he returns unless an injury opens a place for him.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings set for duty in the infield

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:58:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) will see more starts at shortstop and second base going forward, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has returned a .285/.340/.419 slash line with 21 runs and eight stolen bases, which makes him a viable starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. However, Arizona looks to be on the verge of mixing and matching their lineup going forward, so Owings could lose some playing time going forward.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings could play Saturday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:29:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) could be available off the bench Friday, June 10, and could return to the lineup against the Miami Marlins Saturday, June 11, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has been losing time to Michael Bourn of late, which lessens Owings' fantasy value in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. Stay tuned for updates, but there isn't a lot of upside with Owings.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings out with foot injury

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 11:19:45 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8, for the third straight day with a left foot injury. Owings has dealt with soreness in his right foot all season, but now the left foot is an issue. Owings is day to day with plantar fasciitis.

Fantasy Tip: David Peralta is filling in at center field with Michael Bourn sitting. Peralta is a midrange outfielder as he's fresh off the DL. Bourn is hitting .250 with three steals and has some NL-only value due to speed, albeit in diminished form. Owings, himself, is hitting .285 with eight steals and is a NL-only option as well when he returns.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings not playing

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:27:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/OF Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and is hitting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has been flying under the radar for Arizona this year with a .285/.340/.419 slash line with two home runs, 18 RBI and eight stolen bases. His playing time could suffer now with David Peralta back in the fold in the outfield. However, Owings is still a fine depth option in cavernous mixed leagues because of his multiposition eligibility and speed.

Diamondbacks | Michael Bourn out of the lineup

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 08:34:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Saturday, June 4. 2B Chris Owings will start in center field, while SS Nick Ahmed will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed has only two hits and one RBI over his last 15 at-bats, so owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups. Owings is hitting only .227 over his last seven days but should still have some value in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Michael Bourn remains in lineup

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:47:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Michael Bourn is starting once again in center field and batting second Wednesday, June 1, opposite Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers. OF Chris Owings is at shortstop and hitting seventh, while SS Nick Ahmed is on the bench for the second consecutive game.

Fantasy Tip: Who would've thought Bourn would suddenly become an intriguing name again in fantasy baseball in 2016? Well, that is the case, as he's been regularly starting and more times than not, he's featured in the No. 2 hole. That carries importance in a potent lineup. Owings, meanwhile, has also been playing every day and merits consideration in some mixed formats. Unfortunately, all of this detracts from the value of Ahmed, who becomes the odd man out when Owings is at shortstop.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo, Nick Ahmed out

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:39:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. C Chris Herrmann is behind the plate and is hitting sixth, while OF Chris Owings is starting at the 6 and is batting seventh. Also, OF Michael Bourn draws in at center field and is hitting second against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been serviceable as a second catcher in deeper leagues with a .308 average and five home runs and 19 RBI. He's not a bad low-end play if you're looking to save money at catcher in daily setups. Bourn is the better daily buy for upside hitting out of the two-hole, as he has been very productive for the Snakes with a .355 average, six RBI and three stolen bases since being signed.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:26:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not starting Saturday, May 28, against the San Diego Padres. Tomas' replacement is OF Michael Bourn, who will bat second against Padres SP Cesar Vargas. In addition, OF Brandon Drury has been moved to left field, OF Chris Owings will play center and Bourn is in right.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas is in a slump at the plate (3-for-20), so maybe this night of rest will do him some good. Bourn's average with Arizona is .125 at home, but his other numbers are pretty strong so he might be worth the flyer in daily leagues. Bourn is also hitting second, so he will have more chances to drive in runs.
