D-backs' Owings nets Player of Week
Chris Owings has always had intriguing tools, with evaluators saying he just needed time for his performance to catch up to his potential.

That might be happening now.

The No. 4 prospect on the D-backs' Top 20 list led the Minors in total bases to earn Prospect Watch Player of the Week honors. Owings had 26 total bases over six games, finishing with a .519/.567/.963 line for the week. He had six extra-base hits (three homers, three doubles).

The Astros' George Springer gets a runner-up nod for hitting four homers in four games for the week, finishing with a .583 average and a 2.393 OPS. All four homers actually came in one day during a doubleheader.

Owings, 20, is now hitting .331 for the year, 11th best in the California League. He's sixth in the league, right behind Springer, with a .571 slugging percentage while he's currently third in home runs with nine.
