RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
