A slight shortstop with plus instincts, Arizona prospect Chris Owings could see a move to second base in the near future. Signed out of high school in South Carolina after being selected 41st overall in the 2009 draft, Owings is a gap-to-gap hitter with a bit of pop. He's decent defensively, and shows above average speed on the bases. He's not a likely All Star, but he could be a competent bench or utility player in the bigs at any time.

Chris Owings has been named as a replacement player on the 2013 Futures Game roster. The Arizona shortstop has been chewing up AAA pitching this year, slashing .348/.369/.481 with 8 homers and 15 stolen bases. He's having a career year, and at age 21, it might just be time to revise his ceiling upwards.
