He cheats on fastballs, but still has the ability to hit the curve. Swing hard in case you hit it type guy but he actually does hit it.
This is probably the reason most people say Owings wouldn't hit as well if he played every day in the OF.Flaws like that are usually figured out by other teams and exploited.I wouldn't be surprised if they already have but like it has been said he still is a pitcher and I imagine that goes through the other guys head a little when he facing Owings.
