Royals' Chris Owings: Inks deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owings agreed to a contract with Kansas City on Wednesday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports. Per Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com, he will make $3 million plus incentives in 2019.

Owings was not tendered a contract by Arizona last week after making $3.4 million for the Diamondbacks in 2018. The utility man wasn't able to duplicate his steady performance from the previous two seasons, hitting just .206 with a disastrous .574 OPS across 309 plate appearances. He figures to serve as a fourth outfielder and reserve infielder. There's a path to playing time on the diamond should Owings correct his issues at the dish.

Chris Owings: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owings was not tendered a contract by Arizona for the 2019 season.

Owings made $3.4 million during this past season and likely could've remained within the organization for a similar price after a widely disappointing campaign, but the Diamondbacks elected to cut the utility player loose. Across 106 games in 2018, he slashed just .206/.272/.302 with four home runs, 22 RBI and 11 stolen bases. Due to his versatility around the diamond, Owings should be able to find a new home with a club that lacks depth.

Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Handling leadoff role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owings will lead off and start in right field Monday against the Dodgers.

Owings will pick up his third start in five games after going 5-for-7 with a home run, three RBI and two runs over his previous two appearances. With Arizona officially eliminated from the postseason after losing its series to the Rockies over the weekend, manager Torey Lovullo will likely empty his bench more liberally over the final week of the regular season. That should translate to more playing time for the likes of Owings, who appears poised to finish the year strong after slashing just .195/.262/.281 over 282 plate appearances with the big club prior to his recent surge.

Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Big day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owings went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

Owings got in on a four-run first inning with an RBI single, then later added to the 9-0 blowout with a two-run homer in the sixth. It was the 27-year-old's first start at the big-league level since July, and despite the big day, he's slashing just .204/.269/.300.

Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Returning to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks recalled Owings from Triple-A Reno on Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Owings was listed among a slew of new roster members for the Sept. 1 roster expansion. The 27-year-old carries a lackluster .198/.267/.287 line with three homers and nine stolen bases across 273 major-league appearances this year and will probably top out at one or two starts per week -- probably against left-handed pitchers -- while serving in a utility role. NL-only fantasy players could find some help here if depth is an issue.
