RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Owings earned a spot on the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster and was the team's primary shortstop for the first three months of the season before left shoulder soreness derailed his rookie season. He returned to the roster in September and shifted to second base, starting 18 of 20 games before the injury shut him down for good. While the team insisted that the injury was merely a bruise, Owings had surgery to repair the labrum in his non-throwing shoulder in early October. The offensive production in Year 1 was a significant drop from his production at Triple-A Reno in 2013, but his numbers prior to the first instance of his shoulder woes in June (.277/.313/.458, six homers, 7-for-7 in stolen base opportunities) project favorably for a middle infielder over a complete season. If he's healthy when spring training begins, Owings' combination of power and speed will make him an intriguing sleeper in 2015.

2014

Owings had a fantastic 2013 in Triple-A Reno, hitting .330 and stealing 20 bases. His aggression at the plate hasn't hurt his batting average yet, and it may not be an overwhelming problem given his combination of speed and ability to make hard contact. In the short term, Owings' problem is organizational depth at his position. Despite the fact that he played shortstop and second base last year, he has plenty of hurdles on the depth chart so long as Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hill are in town. He may be a major trade chip for the Diamondbacks, but Owings could end up back at Reno to begin the season awaiting his chance for regular playing time in Arizona.

2013

Owings spent most of 2012 as a 20-year-old at Double-A, where injuries limited him to just 310 plate appearances and 69 games. Plate discipline continues to be a concern (3.5 percent walk rate) for the former supplemental first-round pick (2009), but he fields his position well and is ultimately expected to develop average power as he matures. The departure of Stephen Drew via trade in July makes shortstop a significant area of short and long-term need for Arizona, so Owings could be in the mix as early as 2014 depending on how things materialize this season. He'll likely head back to Mobile to try and conquer Double-A and solidify his place as part of the D-Backs' long-term plan in the middle infield.
