The Arizona Diamondbacks finished the 2014 season with a record of 64-98, last in the National League West. They were near the bottom of the league in runs scored and team ERA. Injuries also hindered the team, as only two players appeared in over 120 games. Shortstop Chris Owings, who missed nearly half the season, will undergo shoulder surgery on Thursday.

Our own Nathaniel Reeves reported on September 29 that Owings was still having problems with his shoulder that he injured on June 20. 

An update on Owings, as reported by Steve Gilbert of, is that he would undergo surgery on Thursday to repair the posterior labrum of his left shoulder. The injury occurred when sliding into home plate in a game on June 20, which put him on the disabled list until September 2.  The pain in his shoulder persisted and he underwent another MRI. The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews.

Owings, in his first full Major League season, hit .261 with six home runs and 26 RBI in 91 games. He's appeared in 111 career games and has a batting average of .266 with six home runs and 31 RBI.
