Mark Anderson at BP:

Ranked as the Diamondbacks no. 3 prospect heading into the season, Owings will make his debut on the heels of a season in which he was named both the Pacific Coast League MVP and Rookie of the Year.

...While he hit just .263 with six home runs in 69 games at Double-A last season, Owings was promoted to Triple-A to start the 2013 campaign. In his first taste of the minor leagues’ highest level he hit .330 with 31 doubles and 12 home runs for Reno.

... He likes to swing the bat and will never be known for working counts and drawing walks... Owings swings through quality breaking balls but he can barrel velocity and shows a keen ability to stay back on changeups and drive them to all fields. His offensive approach is likely to get him in trouble during his initial big league trials in 2013 and 2014, but once he settles in he’ll have the natural feel for hitting to post a .270-.275 average, and the pop to pound 25 doubles and 15 home runs...

Mike Gianella at BP:

... Owings’ power/speed potential has excited keeper league fantasy owners since he burst onto the scene as a prospect in 2011. Despite this, the contact issues Mark notes above pose a problem for Owings’ chances of getting into a big-league lineup, in both the short and long terms. Reno’s friendly Triple-A environment has artificially inflated the batting averages of more than a few prospects in the recent past, and Owings is no exception. I see the .270-.275 Mark notes above as a ceiling, but it’s worth noting that the floor is considerably lower.

... How much opportunity Owings gets down the stretch likely depends on how much longer Arizona can hang on in the race... Owings could pick up the odd start here and there, but the Diamondbacks are far more likely to go with Gregorius for at least the next couple of weeks. Looking forward, Owings should have a legitimate shot to wrestle the shortstop job away from Didi in 2014. If he can do that, the 15/20 HR/SB potential immediately puts Owings on the map. He is a high-risk/high-reward guy right out of the gate if he walks out of camp next spring with a job.
