Manager Bob Melvin said today he was going with Owings and that he would start next Friday at Washington.
"His last outing wasn’t his best," said Melvin, who, when asked why he settled on Owings replied, "Because he’s good. We saw some things for a young guy that you don’t see. Not only his pitching but it’s the liitle things like holding runners on base."
Owings was told yesterday that he’d won the fifth starter’s spot.
"Like I said before the season, I’m glad I didn’t have to make the decision," he said. "There’s a lot of good guys out there. I’m just excited."
Owings likely will open the season on the minor league roster before being activated for next Friday’s start.
