The Arizona Diamondbacks are giving one of their top prospects a taste of the Major Leagues.

Infielder Chris Owings, who was recently named the MVP of the Pacific Coast League, was one of three players the team called up from Triple-A Reno Tuesday, with infielder Matt Davidson and catcher Tuffy Gosewisch being the others.

Owings, 22, hit .330 with 31 doubles, eight triples and 12 home runs for the Aces. He drove in 81.

This will be the second stint with the D-backs for Davidson, who hit .179 with two RBI in 12 games with the team, and Gosewisch, who batted .185 in eight games with the team.
