Micah Owings, rhp

School: Gainesville HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Gainesville, Fla.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-5 Wt.: 220 Birthdate: 9/28/82
College Commitment: Georgia Tech.
Scouting Report: Another Georgia prospect drawing attention from the Braves, Owings should go in the sandwich or second round. He was MVP of the Connie Mack World Series last summer, helping East Cobb claim the championship by hitting a grand slam and earning a save in the semifinals and drilling a three-run homer in the finals. Though he would offer power potential and arm strength as a third baseman, he'll become a full-time pitcher this summer. He works at 88-92 mph and reaches 93-94, and can throw his late-breaking slider for strikes. Owings also has a strong body (6-foot-5, 220 pounds) and shows a feel for a changeup. He's not as projectable as some because he was held back a year in school and will turn 20 in September, but his raw stuff is plenty good as it is.
