Reds Officially Acquire Owings

According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds officially received pitcher Micah Owings as part of the bounty for the Adam Dunn trade.  Owings dealt with shoulder stiffness shortly after the D'Backs sent him to the minors in late July.

Owings, 26 in a few weeks, posted a 5.93 ERA in 104.2 innings this year.  He lost a mile an hour on his fastball, but maintained a solid strikeout rate.  His control worsened, and home runs continued to be a problem.  Owings' flyball tendencies won't be a good fit for Great American Ballpark, but he can still be a solid #4 starter when healthy.
