Rangers signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league contract.
Stubbs was released by the Rockies last week after hitting just .216/.286/.431 with five homers and 10 RBI in 102 at-bats this season. He'll play at Triple-A Round Rock for the next week before being a part of the Rangers' September call-ups. Stubbs could wind up seeing some time in left field with the big club if Josh Hamilton's knee injury lingers. Aug 24 - 5:34 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Giants have interest in Drew Stubbs.

Stubbs was just released by the Rockies after hitting just .216/.286/.431 with five homers and 10 RBI in 102 at-bats this season. The Giants would want him on a minor league deal and would be responsible only for a prorated portion of the minimum salary, as the Rockies ate what remained of his $5.825 million contract.

Rockies released OF Drew Stubbs.

Stubbs was designated for assignment last week and has opted to look for employment elsewhere rather than accepting a minor league assignment with the Rockies. The 30-year-old has struggled with the bat this season, slashing .216/.286/.431 with five homers and 10 RBI in 102 at-bats.
Aug 20 - 7:36 PM

Rockies designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.

Stubbs had a very good 2014 with the Rox, batting .289/.339/.482 with 15 home runs and 20 stolen bases, but he has stumbled to a .216/.286/.431 slash line in 2015. The 30-year-old utility outfielder may draw some interest on waivers for his speed and defense.
Aug 12 - 4:19 PM

Drew Stubbs homered in a second straight start and walked Thursday against the Braves.

Stubbs spent six weeks in Triple-A after his horrible start, but he remains a fine fourth outfielder and he could be a smart pickup for some team this month. The Rockies should give him a fair amount of playing time to let him rebuild his value, providing him with value in NL-only leagues.
Jul 10 - 2:30 AM

Rockies recalled OF Drew Stubbs from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Stubbs was demoted to Triple-A on May 20 after struggling to an awful .118/.182/.255 slash line in his first 56 plate appearances. He appears to have righted the ship somewhat at Triple-A, hitting .263/.376/.380 tough his power was noticeably absent with just two homers and 20 RBI in 165 plate appearances.
Jul 2 - 7:00 PM

Rockies optioned OF Drew Stubbs to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Stubbs was batting just .118/.182/.255 through 56 plate appearances this season. Brandon Barnes has been recalled in a corresponding move to provide outfield depth while Corey Dickerson rests his plantar fasciitis. Stubbs is very good defensively and has posted strong overall offensive numbers since joining Colorado, so he should be back up as soon as he shows some life on the farm.
May 20 - 5:15 PM

Drew Stubbs homered off Ian Kennedy for his first hit of the season Friday.

Stubbs, one of the NL's best part-time players last year, went 0-for-20 with 12 strikeouts in April, causing the Rockies to hesitate to start him in recent days. He's obviously deserving of more of a rope, particularly since he's probably the team's best defensive outfielder.
May 2 - 2:34 AM

Drew Stubbs went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Wednesday's 10-3 loss to the Padres.

Stubbs hit his second Cactus League home run in the first inning off of Tyson Ross, then added an RBI single in the third inning against Ross. Stubbs is batting .333 (7-for-21) so far this spring. While he won't be a starting player, his combination of speed and power while playing in Colorado still makes him an attractive late-round option in deep leagues. He hit 15 home runs and stole 20 bases in 424 plate appearances last season.
Mar 18 - 7:24 PM

Drew Stubbs cranked a solo homer in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Stubbs' longball came in the fourth inning off of Tyler Thornburg. It was one of two homers on the day for the Rockies, as youngster Trevor Story also went deep. Stubbs had a surprising amount of fantasy value with the Rockies last season, hitting .289/.339/.482 with 15 homers and 20 steals in 388 at-bats. He should have value in deeper leagues again in 2015.
Mar 12 - 7:31 PM

Rockies and OF Drew Stubbs avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.825 million contract.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reported the details of the contract on Twitter. Stubbs enjoyed a strong 2014 season, hitting .289/.339/.482 with 15 homers and 20 steals in 388 at-bats. He'll likely be a part-time player again this season but is one of the more dynamic fourth outfielders in baseball.
Jan 14 - 6:34 PM

MASN Sports' Roch Kubatko reports that the Rockies have contacted the Orioles to gauge their interest in a trade for Drew Stubbs.

The Orioles have lost both Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis this offseason, so they are expected to be in the market for another outfielder. Kubatko hears that the Rockies hope to get pitching in return. Stubbs batted .289/.339/.482 with 15 home runs, 43 RBI, and 20 stolen bases in 132 games this past season, but did most of his damage at Coors Field.

Drew Stubbs hit a game-winning solo homer in the eighth inning to push the Rockies to a 3-2 win over the Padres on Tuesday.

He finished 1-for-4. Stubbs' shot to right scarcely cleared the fence, and also nearly injured Rymer Liriano, who chased to the wall and then bounced off it as he failed to reel in the sphere. Some predicted a nice bounceback year for Stubbs, who had an offensive profile conducive to Coors Field, and who would be escaping Cleveland's Progressive Field. Those that bought lottery tickets have cashed, as the 29-year-old is slashing .290/.340/.479 with 14 homers and 19 steals in only 376 at-bats.

Drew Stubbs had a hit, two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Stubbs scored on a fourth inning home run by Corey Dickerson, also crossing the plate in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old has 63 runs scored this year to go with a .288/.338/.481 line.

Drew Stubbs went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Stubbs scored on Nolan Arenado's home run in the first inning, and he added an RBI double in the sixth inning. The stolen base was his 16th of the season. With Carlos Gonzalez out for the year and Michael Cuddyer on the disabled list, Stubbs should get regular at-bats and is a deep mixed league option down the stretch.
