Owings had surgery on his thumb in Arizona and has returned to Denver where he is wearing a soft cast, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
The surgery was considered successful, though Owings will have to rest for a substantial period of time. Assuming all goes well, he should be able to start taking ground balls in roughly 2-to-3 weeks.
Owings (thumb) will require a surgical procedure, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Manager Bud Black said Sunday that Owings is slated for surgery after he was transferred to the 60-day injured list.

Prior to the injury, Owings went 8-for-15 with six extra-base hits, three RBI and two stolen bases in seven games.
The Rockies transferred Owings (thumb) to the 60-day injured list Sunday.
Owings was diagnosed with a sprained left thumb at the time he was placed on the 10-day IL on April 10, but the injury was apparently more severe than the club initially anticipated. He'll now be shut down until June as a result of the issue, making it tough to justify holding onto the 29-year-old utility man outside of NL-only leagues. Owings was off to a hot start prior to suffering the injury, as he produced six extra-base hits (three triples, three doubles) to go with two stolen bases in his first 17 plate appearances.
Rockies manager Bud Black said Sunday that X-rays on Owings' sprained left thumb returned negative, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Owings' thumb injury was still significant enough for him to land on the 10-day injured list Saturday, but the Rockies are seemingly hopeful he'll avoid a lengthy absence. Black said that Owings will still receive a precautionary MRI next weekend when the Rockies return to Denver.

Owings has been dealing with a tight hamstring recently, but he's now also managing a thumb injury that will force him to miss at least 10 days. It's not yet clear when Owings will be able to return to action, but Alan Trejo's contract was selected by the Rockies in a corresponding move. Trejo will serve as a bench option with Owings and Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) sidelined.
Owings is still dealing with hamstring tightness Saturday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Owings lined a triple as a pinch hitter in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Giants, but manager Bud Black revealed Saturday that the 29-year-old is still receiving treatment for a tight hamstring. The team continues to monitor Owings' progress closely, and he should be considered day-to-day.

The 29-year-old entered the game in the ninth inning for pitcher Jordan Sheffield and hit a triple before coming around to score on Garrett Hampson's sacrifice fly for the Rockies' lone run of the game.

He's produced six runs scored, three RBI, two stolen bases, three triples and three doubles.
Owings (hamstring) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against Arizona.
Owings had started four of the first six games of the season, but he exited Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks due to right hamstring tightness.

Rockies manager Bud Black clarified that Owings was removed from Wednesday's 8-0 win over the Diamondbacks due to right hamstring tightness, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The club initially announced that Owings was lifted for Sam Hilliard in the top of the sixth inning due to right leg soreness, but Black provided more information about the utility man's injury after the contest. Black was careful to note that Owings isn't dealing with a strain, so his early exit is being labeled precautionary. Before departing, Owings went 3-for-3 with a triple, two doubles, two RBI and a run, strengthening his case for continuing to receive steady at-bats moving forward. Owings has started in four of the Rockies' first six games.

With the Rockies facing another southpaw Sunday, Owings was back in the lineup at second base.

Owings got the opportunity to start at second base with a southpaw on the mound, pushing Garrett Hampson to the outfield while Sam Hilliard and Ryan McMahon sat on the bench. He put together an impressive performance thanks to his on-base ability and aggressive baserunning. When the Rockies are facing righties on the mound, Owings doesn't figure to have a regular spot in the order, though his playing time is worth monitoring -- particularly when the team is at Coors Field.
Owings is starting Thursday's game against the Dodgers.
While Ryan McMahon is expected to see the majority of playing time at second base to begin the season, Owings will start at the keystone on Opening Day with southpaw Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers. Owings hit .262 with four home runs and seven RBI this spring.

Owings (hamstring) agreed to a minor-league deal with the Rockies on Friday.
The 29-year-old had a solid showing with the Rockies in 2020 with a .268/.318/.439 slash line in 44 plate appearances before going down with a hamstring strain, and he'll receive another chance to crack the team in 2021. Owings is likely to be competing for a utility role in spring training.
