Micah Owings | Pitcher Washington Nationals

Updated on June 23, 2014

Micah Owings of the Washington Nationals

Micah Owings made his major league debut on April 6, 2007 against the Washington Nationals. He pitched five shutout innings, allowing only one hit, and striking out six. Originally brought up to fill a starter spot while Randy Johnson recovered from back surgery, management was very impressed by his performances. He now holds a starter spot in the Diamondbacks rotation.

Owings holds Georgia's high school home run record with 69, fourth in the nation only to Drew Henson, Jeff Clement, and James Peterson. As a sophomore, he hit .630 with 21 homers; as a senior he hit .448 with 25 home runs while going 12-1 on the mound with a 1.03 ERA, 121 strikeouts, and 3 walks in 75 innings. Owings played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Forsyth Central High School in Cumming and transferred to Gainesville High School as a junior.

Owings played college baseball at Georgia Tech in 2003 and 2004 before transferring to Tulane University in New Orleans. He was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 2nd round (50th overall) in the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign with them. He was selected again in 2003 in the 19th round (576th overall) by the Chicago Cubs and again chose not to sign. In 2005, he was selected in the third round by the Arizona Diamondbacks (83rd overall).

After signing with the D-backs, he was assigned to the Single-A Lancaster JetHawks. He pitched in 16 games out of the bullpen, going 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA. In 2006, he played in Double-A and Triple-A for the Tennessee Smokies and the Tucson Sidewinders, respectively. He made 12 starts for the Smokies and went 6-2 with a 2.88 ERA. His stats in Triple-A were also impressive, in which he went a perfect 10-0 with a 3.75 ERA in just 15 starts. [Source]

      Isn't this something? I just picked a lens at random to pop in and see that I was here previously -- a little over a year ago? Isn't that interesting???

      Micah who? I never heard of this guy until I meandered onto your wonderful SquidWho lens today. I hope Micah takes time out from his busy career to check out his tribute page. Wonderful job as usual my dear.

      My best team of MLB is The Arizona Diamondbacks . This why I always fallow their games especially whenever I have some time. I’m always trying not o miss any of their game and hear about the team’s news. But The Arizona Diamondbacks tickets get more pricy especially when there are some hot games. But, if we’re really good fans we should try not to be mean when we’re talking about a favourite teams. It’s not only the Diamondbacks tickets that got pricy, but there are other major teams too, so the team needs our support and we should provide as much as we can.
