Diamondbacks reinstate A.J. Pollock and Chris Owings from DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks are getting healthier by the day, as the team announced Tuesday it had reinstated outfielder A.J. Pollock and infielder Chris Owings from the 15-day disabled list.

The 26-year-old Pollock had appeared in 52 games for the D-backs this season, in which he hit .316 with six home runs and 15 RBI. He landed on the disabled list when he was hit in the right hand with a pitch from the Reds’ Johnny Cueto, and has not played for the D-backs since. The outfielder hit .173 with two doubles, one triple and nine RBI in 15 rehab games with Triple-A Reno and Rookie AZL D-backs.

Owings, a rookie, was the teams’ Opening Day shortstop and one of the pleasant early-season surprises. The 23-year-old hit .277 with 15 doubles, five triples, six home runs and 21 RBI in 72 games before being placed on the DL with a strained left shoulder. He made 13 rehab appearances with Reno and the AZL D-backs, hitting .298 with three RBI, seven runs scored and eight stolen bases.

The moves put the D-back’s active roster at 29.
