Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, May 24. INF Aaron Hill will start at third base, with INF Chris Owings starting at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is receiving the day off, despite batting .406 with five RBIs over the last seven days. Hill ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled of late, with three hits in his last 18 at-bats, while Owings ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been even worse, with only two hits in his last 24 at-bats.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. SS Nick Ahmed is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.
Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .181 (17-for-94) with no home runs and five RBI this year. He's facing a pitcher that has been very strong this year, too, especially against righty sticks. Avoid Ahmed everywhere.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings and OF A.J. Pollock both are not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, April 7.
Fantasy Tip: Jake Lamb ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is starting at the hot corner, Nick Ahmed ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is at the 6, and Aaron Hill ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is starting at second base. Third base and second base may be a revolving door early this season for the D-backs. None of the trio of options previously mentioned should be considered strong plays at FantasyScore Tuesday.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings will be the starting second basemen to start the season, according to manager Chip Hale.
Fantasy Tip: Take a wait-and-see approach with Owings ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in the majority of formats. He boasts a nice power-speed combo, but with just 393 plate appearances in the majors the jury is still out on whether he can consistently hit major league pitching. He should be owned in all NL-only leagues, though, and there is upside for FantasyScore contests in favorable matchups. He may also have a short leash with Aaron Hill ($4,000, 8.0%) fighting for his job.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings (shoulder) took his first swings of the spring Friday, March 6, after undergoing surgery to fix the labrum in his left shoulder last October. He took regular batting practice later in the day Friday and didn't have any issues with his shoulder. The Diamondbacks see Owings as a starter at either second base or shortstop in 2015 depending on the rest of the infield. He's expected to make his spring debut in mid-March, and he'll take batting practice again Saturday, March 8.
Fantasy Tip: Owings has some intriguing pop at the shortstop position, but his fantasy value will depend on if he's fully healthy and if he's seeing regular playing time. He'll probably go undrafted in most mixed leagues, but he could come into play as a valuable middle infielder off the waiver wire during the year. Owings should be owned in all NL-only leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings (shoulder) will be a little behind in spring training, according to manager Chip Hale. However, Owings should be ready for opening day.
Fantasy Tip: Owings is an up-and-coming prospect that offers a sneaky mix of speed and power late in mixed drafts. If everything aligns, he's a candidate for a 15-15 season in Arizona.
