Diamondbacks Roster Review: Micah Owings

By Scott Allen

As we head into the second half of the season, it is time to take a look at the current roster before all the possible trades and roster moves are made as the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to contend for a possible NL West divisional title. Next Up – Micah Owings.

Owings: 3-0, 2.96 ERA

Review:  Micah Owings has been a pleasant surprise since returning to the Dbacks back in May.  He started out in the starting rotation until the return of Zach Duke.  He has been a great addition to the bullpen since then.  He has pitched 24.1 innings, giving up just 8 ER.

Outlook:  With the recent struggles of Duke, Owings may be ready for a return to the rotation.  Nothing has been officially mentioned but he has to be a prime candidate.  Owings can really help the Dbacks get to the next level continuing to pitch at the level he currently is at.
