RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Reno Aces infielder Chris Owings has been named the D-backs Player of the Year, according to D-backs’ Director, Player Development Mike Bell.

Last month, Owings was named the Pacific Coast League Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player, marking the second-straight season an Aces player has swept both awards. In addition to being named a PCL mid and postseason All-Star, the 22-year-old was also awarded the D-backs Organizational Player of the Month Award for April, May and June.

Owings hit .330 (180-for-546) with 31 doubles, 8 triples, 12 home runs, 81 RBI, 20 stolen bases and 104 runs scored in 125 games for Reno. Among D-backs prospects, he ranked first in games, at-bats, batting average, hits and runs scored.

His contract was selected by the D-backs in September, and he has recorded four multi-hit games with the D-backs so far. Selected by the D-backs in the 1st round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Gilbert High School, Owings carries a .290 average over five minor league seasons.
