Stubbs exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league contract after being told he would not make the Opening Day roster. The speedy outfielder will not try to catch on elsewhere quickly before Opening Day, although there's a good chance he'll have to go to the minors first. Mar 26 - 11:37 AM

Drew Stubbs went 0-for-4 on Wednesday, lowering his spring average to .147 in 34 at-bats.

Stubbs was just an insurance signing for the Twins and was only a candidate to make the team if someone got hurt. Still, this ugly spring means he's not likely to draw interest from anyone else who might need an outfielder.
Mar 22 - 4:30 PM

Twins signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Stubbs batted just .225/.330/.338 with three home runs and nine stolen bases in 59 games last season between the Orioles, Rangers, and Braves. He's always had decent power and speed, but the 32-year-old outfielder carries a .244/.314/.394 career batting line into Twins camp this spring. He'll compete for a spot on the Minnesota bench.
Feb 7 - 7:37 PM

Orioles claimed OF Drew Stubbs off irrevocable release waivers.

Stubbs was released by the Rangers after turning down an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock several days ago. He was hitting .259/.343/.414 over 67 plate appearances with the Rangers prior to his release. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Rangers released OF Drew Stubbs.

Stubbs refused an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock after getting pushed off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week. He'll officially become a free agent once he clears irrevocable release waivers. The 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .259/.343/.414 in 67 plate appearances this season between Atlanta and Arlington.

Rangers designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.

The Rangers needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Carlos Gomez, who is making his Texas debut Thursday against Cleveland. The well-traveled 31-year-old has hit .259 with three homers and eight steals across 59 at-bats this season. There's a good chance he'll get snatched up on waivers.

Rangers activated OF Drew Stubbs from the 60-day disabled list.

A pesky left toe sprain sidelined Stubbs back in mid-May and it took two months for him to rehab it. The veteran outfielder has seen just 176 at-bats since the start of the 2015 season. He likely won't have any true fantasy relevance moving forward.

Drew Stubbs (toe) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Stubbs has been sidelined for two months with a left toe sprain. He should be ready for activation before long.
Sun, Jul 24, 2016 12:52:00 PM

Rangers transferred OF Drew Stubbs from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Eric Surkamp on the 40-man roster. Stubbs has been sidelined for a little over a month with a left toe sprain.

Drew Stubbs received a cortisone injection Wednesday for his sprained left toe.

Stubbs has been cleared for all baseball activities except left-hand turns, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. A real Derek Zoolander. The speedy backup outfielder has been on the disabled list since May 23 and is still probably 7-10 days away.

Rangers placed OF Drew Stubbs on the 15-day disabled list with a left toe sprain.

The move was reported earlier Monday afternoon, but the Rangers waited until closer to game-time to make it official. Stubbs injured his toe during Sunday's game and will now get some extended rest. The Rangers have called up prospect slugger Joey Gallo in a corresponding roster move.

The Rangers will make a decision on Drew Stubbs (toe) prior to Monday's game.

Stubbs suffered a sprained left pinkie toe during Sunday's game and was reportedly headed to the disabled list, but the Rangers haven't made an official decision yet. There should be more clarity on his status in the next couple of hours.
Mon, May 23, 2016 04:20:00 PM

Drew Stubbs was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Astros with a sprained pinky toe on his left foot.

Stubbs is scheduled to undergo an X-ray on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. He was in considerable pain after the game, so there's a chance the toe could be broken. His availability for the next few games will likely depend on his tolerance for pain.

Drew Stubbs socked a walk-off solo home run to end Saturday's 6-5, 10-inning win over the Blue Jays

Stubbs erased a monster top of the ninth by the Blue Jays. They had tied the game up with back-to-back homers by Justin Smoak and Troy Tulowitzki. No matter for Stubbs, who homered off Gavin Floyd in the 10th to win the game. That he was designated for assignment by the Braves at the beginning of May has to make this feel all the sweeter. He has hits in three of his six games with the Rangers, but slashed just .237/.310/.316 with the Braves prior to being designated. There is no real fantasy upside here.
Sat, May 14, 2016 11:35:00 PM

Rangers signed OF Drew Stubbs to a one-year contract.

Stubbs played with the Rangers last year so both sides are familiar with each other. With Josh Hamilton's rehab taking longer than anticipated, Stubbs will provide outfield depth. He's active and with the team for Saturday's game against the Tigers.
