The Diamondbacks said Owings would be in his new Reds uniform Friday night when Cincinnati visits Arizona.

Owings did fine at the plate this season, hitting .288 with a home run, two doubles and three RBIs in 22 games with the Diamondbacks. But the 25-year-old struggled on the mound, going 6-9 with a 5.93 ERA and was sent down to Triple-A Tucson on July 29.

Owings went 4-for-5, including a pair of homers, drove in six runs and scored four times in a game against the Atlanta Braves last year. His 11 total bases were the most by a pitcher since 1942.

The Diamondbacks sent minor league pitcher Dallas Buck and two players to be named to Cincinnati for Dunn on Aug. 11. The Reds previously got minor league catcher Wilkin Castillo from Arizona as part of the deal.
