It’s a Dunn deal; Owings to the Reds

The Reds sent outfielder Adam Dunn to the Dbacks in exchange for starting pitcher Micah Owings.

I can’t remember that time the media has focused more on a pitcher’s hitting stats rather than his pitching.  Perhaps it’s because Owings comes with a 6-9 record and a 5.93 ERA.

Owings has a .288 average for the year and a career .313 average with 5 homers with 18 rbis. 

As it looks, Owings won’t be doing much pitching (or hitting) for the Reds down the homestretch anyway.

Update:  Maybe the Reds shoulda waited a couple days.  Dbacks skip used Micah Owings as a pinch hitter against the Reds in the 10th inning Saturday and Owings responded with a rbi double.
