As a starting pitcher Micah Owings is a decidedly unexciting proposition. Meanwhile he seems to have a lot more oomph working out of the pen. I don't know if his shoulder could sustain more frequent work, but it seems to me that Owings might be able to give the club a legitimate long reliever, a guy who can actually go 2+ IP. He could spare the rest of the pen from having to log a ton of innings and from getting used too early in the game. And you don't have to pinch hit for him.
That's my case for him, but let's poll this one. Anyone else think he's got a future as a long man?
