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."
