Nationals | Micah Owings converts to 1B

Washington Nationals 1B Micah Owings has converted from a relief pitcher to a first baseman. He made the move last season after suffering a strained right forearm with the San Diego Padres. He has a triple slash line of .283/.310/.502 in 219 career plate appearances, including nine home runs and 35 RBIs. The Nationals see him as a first baseman that could pitch in an emergency, and he's likely ticketed for the minors.
