    Micah Owings is one of the players to be named in the Adam Dunn deal.

    per the Arizona republic and rotoworld.com:

    The Arizona Republic reports that Micah Owings is one of the players to be named in the Adam Dunn deal.
    Depending on who the second player to be named is, this could end up looking like a great deal for Cincinnati, who wasn't going to re-sign Dunn anyway. Owings was a big disappointment this season after posting a 4.30 ERA in 2007, and while the Diamondbacks refused to say he was injured, he's currently dealing with shoulder stiffness in the minors. He'll need to improve his change-up to make it as a starter, and who knows - the Reds could always convert him to an outfielder or first baseman.

    I hope the Reds look seriously at making Owings a hitter.

    We'll have some power off the bench, that's for sure!

    It's one of the safeties of drafting a pitcher who mashes. I thought the same thing when Drabek was in the draft.

    I'd like see Owings kept as a pitcher and see if he can't return to his 2007 form. If not, he could always be converted back to a hitter.

    BoilerBC11 in the minor league forum is claiming his "inside sources" say the other player is Jarrod Parker. I'd find it highly unlikely, but there could be something to it. It looks like from previous posts that the poster went to the same HS as Parker. Just a rumor like any other at this point though.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    he isn't all that impressive as a pitcher ... really struggles against LHB

    I'm not at all enamored by Owings.

    If true maybe the Reds could get the Diamondbacks to have him convert to a position player in the minors before coming to the Reds at the end of the season?

    How so? Prior to his going downhill this year, presumably due to shoulder problems, he looked like a very solid young starter. And even now, if his arm is pretty damaged, he could become a RH hitter of consequence. Tremendous baseball athlete.

    Gotta believe he'll be converted to offense. This team is light years behind every team in the Central in offense now.

    Just maybe, Owings has a sore shoulder... Jocketty's done it before, with good success.
