Reds Designate Micah Owings For Assignment

The Reds designated pitcher Micah Owings for assignment to make room for newly-signed draft pick Yasmani Grandal on the 40-man roster, tweets John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Owings was acquired from the Diamondbacks as the player to be named later in the Adam Dunn trade about two years ago.  In his Reds career he posted a 5.35 ERA, 6.1 K/9, 5.2 BB/9, and 1.2 HR/9 in 153 innings.  He's dealt with shoulder issues in recent years.  Owings is known for his bat; he slugged four homers, five doubles, and a triple in 76 Reds plate appearances.
