    • Owings (finger) will be used in a super-utility role next season, Steve Gilbert of reports. Owings proved to be a versatile asset again in 2017, playing shortstop, second base, right field and left field for the Diamondbacks before suffering a season-ending broken finger at the end of July. While he chipped in 12 homers and 12 steals, his poor defense and below-average on-base skills aren't desirable traits in an everyday starter, prompting Arizona to shift him to a utility role. Owings was forced to undergo a second surgery on his broken finger in November, leaving his status for Opening Day up in the air.

    • Owings underwent surgery on his right middle finger Saturday. The surgery, which was performed on the same finger Owings had surgery on at the end of July, was apparently done to ensure proper and complete healing. He originally fractured his finger on a bunt attempt July 30 and subsequently missed the rest of the season. Owings hasn't been given a recovery timetable at this point, but barring any setbacks, he'll likely be ready to go for the start spring training.

    • Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Taken off disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Owings (finger) was removed from the 60-day DL on Friday. Owings missed the last two months of the 2017 campaign with a broken finger, but should be completely healed and at full health by the time spring training rolls around. During 97 games this past season, he slashed .268/.299/.442 with 12 home runs and 51 RBI.

    • Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Left off NLDS roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Owings (finger) will not be a part of Arizona's active roster for the NLDS against the Dodgers, Steve Gilbert of reports. Owings has been out with a broken finger since late July, and although he's made strides in the last couple of weeks, he won't rejoin the club just yet. If the Diamondbacks were to advance to the NLCS, they will be able to reshuffle the roster, so there's still a chance he will return to the field this season.

    • Owings (finger) was kept off the active roster for Arizona's wild-card game against the Rockies on Wednesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. It wasn't expected that Owings would be able to return from the 60-day DL ahead of Wednesday's contest, and it appears as though he will remain off the roster for the divisional round as well, in the event that the Diamondbacks collect the wild-card game victory. He's been partaking in baseball activities with the club's fall instructional league team, but needs more time to recover from a finger injury that has kept him sidelined since the end of July.
