Owings (plantar fasciitis) was reinstated from the 15-day DL on Saturday and is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth against the Reds. He will take the place of Nick Ahmed on the active roster after Ahmed placed on the 15-day DL with a right hip impingement. Owings figures to handle the shortstop duties while Ahmed is out, and he will hope to pick up where he left off prior to the injury. Still just 24 years old, Owings' .759 OPS is the best mark of his career. He has rewarded those who did not completely give up on him after he turned in a sub-replacement level season in 2015.
Owings (foot) began a rehab assignment Wednesday with the Diamondbacks' Rookie League squad. Owings has played in two games since returning to game action and is 1-for-5 with two runs scored. It's not clear if he will come off the disabled list for the Diamondbacks' first game out of the All-Star break Friday night, but he should not be sidelined much longer.
Owings (foot) is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The Diamondbacks will return to Arizona next week, and the team is hopeful Owings will be healthy enough to make a return at that point. While the team travels to Toronto and Colorado, Owings will get reps in Arizona League games.
Owings was moved to the 15-day disabled list Saturday due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The plantar fasciitis kept him out of each of the last four games, and it will cost Owings extended time as well. Michael Bourn will likely take over the primary role in center field, while the team recalled right-handed pitcher Zack Godley to replace him on the 25-man roster.
Owings (foot) is out of the lineup again for Friday's game against the Marlins. Owings has missed the last three games due to a persisting foot injury that has shown the possibility of plantar fasciitis according to manager Chip Hale. This particular injury would affect Owings for the rest of the season, which could make playing everyday an unlikely occurrence. In his place, the Diamondbacks will start Nick Ahmed at shortstop for Friday's contest.
