Owings was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a strained hamstring, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports. He exited a game last week with left hamstring tightness, and has since appeared in several games, but it sounds like he made the injury worse, despite going 2-for-4 in Wednesday's game. Brendan Rodgers was recalled and will start at second base Thursday against the Astros.
Owings (hamstring) is starting at second base and batting seventh Wednesday versus Houston. Owings appeared off the bench the past two games after missing almost a week with a left hamstring issue, but he didn't end up requiring a trip to the injured list. The 29-year-old has a .243/.300/.432 slash line with two homers through 40 plate appearances this season.
Owings (hamstring) went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Astros. Owings hadn't played since he suffered the hamstring injury on Aug. 12. In Monday's contest, he hit for catcher Tony Wolters but did not stay in the game after his at-bat. Owings may need a few more days before he's ready to play the field.
Owings exited Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with left hamstring tightness, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Owings was replaced in the field during the second inning as a precautionary measure. It's unclear how the injury occurred, but he'll be able to recover during the Rockies' off day Thursday. Whether he'll miss any time during the team's weekend series against Texas remains to be seen.
Owings will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the Mariners, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. The Rockies have faced a slew of left-handed pitchers lately, which has allowed Owings to at least temporarily emerge as a fixture in the lineup. He'll start for the seventh time in nine games, with the versatile Owings having manned five different positions over that stretch. Owings is slashing a respectable .296/.367/.444 across 30 plate appearances this season.
