Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed placed on disabled list

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:16:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (hip) was placed on the 15 day disabled list on Saturday, July 23, with a right hip impingement. INF/OF Chris Owings was activated off the DL to replace Ahmed.

Fantasy Tip: Owings was batting .285 with two home runs with 18 RBI and eight stolen bases prior to being diagnosed with plantar fascilitis. He'll make his first start since June 5 on Saturday and represent an intermediate upgrade over Ahmed, who is hitting just .218 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 90 games this season. Owings has a shot to be relevant in mixed leagues before the end of the season, but owners should let him get re-acclimated to major-league pitching again first.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo gets a break

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:26:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson on Saturday, July 23. INF/OF Chris Owings will fill in for Ahmed and hit fifth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will replace Castillo behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is batting a miserable .158 in July, but this appears to be nothing more than a day off as he is in no danger of losing his job to Gosewisch. Owings will be making his first big-league appearance since June 5 after recovering from a foot injury, but neither Gosewisch nor Owings is worth using outside of NL-only leagues today.

Diamondbacks | Arizona receiving reinforcements soon

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 05:57:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (back), INF/OF Chris Owings (foot) and OF Socrates Brito (toe) are all expected to return from the disabled list following the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is the only one of the three with fantasy appeal across all formats, and he should be stashed everywhere. Owings and Brito are best left to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. When everyone is healthy, Michael Broun's playing time projects to take a hit.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings may play in rehab games

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 12:55:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) may play in some rehab games this week for the Arizona League Diamondbacks. Manager Chip Hale said the team hopes Owings will be able to be activated from the disabled list during their upcoming homestand.

Fantasy Tip: Owings likely will have to play in a few rehab games before he is ready to return. It is not known how he will be used when he returns, but he should see decent playing time. Owings has value in NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings to DL

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 14:03:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF/2B Chris Owings (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Owings was pretty much pushed out of a position with Peter O'Brien's callup. Yasmany Tomas will likely share a bit of time with Michael Bourn, but Bourn probably won't play enough to make him a viable option outside of NL-only leagues. Owings will be relegated to NL-only depth when he returns unless an injury opens a place for him.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings set for duty in the infield

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:58:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) will see more starts at shortstop and second base going forward, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has returned a .285/.340/.419 slash line with 21 runs and eight stolen bases, which makes him a viable starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. However, Arizona looks to be on the verge of mixing and matching their lineup going forward, so Owings could lose some playing time going forward.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings could play Saturday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:29:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) could be available off the bench Friday, June 10, and could return to the lineup against the Miami Marlins Saturday, June 11, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has been losing time to Michael Bourn of late, which lessens Owings' fantasy value in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. Stay tuned for updates, but there isn't a lot of upside with Owings.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings out with foot injury

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 11:19:45 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings (foot) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8, for the third straight day with a left foot injury. Owings has dealt with soreness in his right foot all season, but now the left foot is an issue. Owings is day to day with plantar fasciitis.

Fantasy Tip: David Peralta is filling in at center field with Michael Bourn sitting. Peralta is a midrange outfielder as he's fresh off the DL. Bourn is hitting .250 with three steals and has some NL-only value due to speed, albeit in diminished form. Owings, himself, is hitting .285 with eight steals and is a NL-only option as well when he returns.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings not playing

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:27:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/OF Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and is hitting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Owings has been flying under the radar for Arizona this year with a .285/.340/.419 slash line with two home runs, 18 RBI and eight stolen bases. His playing time could suffer now with David Peralta back in the fold in the outfield. However, Owings is still a fine depth option in cavernous mixed leagues because of his multiposition eligibility and speed.
