I made that exact move. Dropped Broxton for Owings. The SS eligibility is a bonus. No reason to think Owings can't get 25 - 30 steals with 500+ ABs. Broxton does have more HR potential, but that with Owings in the 2-hole he can be equal or more productive across the board.
you can find a replacement level player of Eickhoff value on the wire any time you need. You won't find some to match Kipnis with 2B eligibility. Plus, you'll likely upgrade someone else in your league.
