Owings' injured right forearm is improving
SAN DIEGO -- Padres long reliever Micah Owings said his strained right forearm is feeling better.

Owings went on the disabled list on Thursday. He said the results of an MRI on Friday were encouraging.

"Structurally, everything looked good," Owings said.

Owings went on the disabled list for the lingering injury after he experienced discomfort when he threw Wednesday against the Nationals. He allowed a run in 1 2/3 innings during the outing.

"I treated it the end of the Colorado trip all the way up to the homestand, and it was still bothering me," Owings said. "[I] didn't feel sharp, didn't feel like I could extend with it, so I knew something was a little bit off. I can rely on [the training staff] to help get it right."
