Padres To Release Micah Owings

The Padres have requested unconditional release waivers for right-hander Micah Owings, Corey Brock of reports (on Twitter). The Legacy Sports Group client will hit free agency after he clears release waivers.

The move amounts to an early non-tender for Owings, who would have been arbitration eligible for the third time this coming offseason. He had been a non-tender candidate after missing most of the season with an elbow injury, so the move doesn't come as a surprise. Owings, 30, appeared in just six games this past season. He underwent season-ending arthroscopic elbow surgery in July and didn't pitch after April.
