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.
May 23 - 4:20 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.
May 14 - 11:35 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.
May 7 - 12:15 PM

Braves designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.

Stubbs slashed .237/.310/.316 across 42 plate appearances with the Braves. He can play all three outfield spots and still has good speed, so there should be some interest from other teams on the waiver wire.
May 2 - 3:53 PM

Braves purchased the contract of OF Drew Stubbs from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Stubbs was signed to a minor league deal earlier in the week and in limited time the Braves saw enough to give their reserve outfield spot to him instead of Michael Bourn. Unless there's an injury in the Braves' outfield, Stubbs fantasy value is limited, though he makes for an intriguing daily league option when squaring off against left-handed pitching.
Apr 2 - 9:55 AM

Braves signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league contract.

He also got an invitation to major league camp, though there are only a couple days left. Stubbs was released from the Rangers' roster on Tuesday morning despite hitting well in the Cactus League. He could see an extended opportunity at some point this season with the rebuilding Braves, and his speed does offer some fantasy intrigue. But he batted just .195/.283/.382 between Colorado and Texas in 2015.
Mar 30 - 7:04 PM

Rangers released OF Drew Stubbs.

Stubbs was expected to make the Opening Day roster as of a couple of days ago, but the Rangers apparently have other plans for their bench. The 31-year-old will look for a better opportunity elsewhere.
Mar 29 - 11:29 AM

Drew Stubbs is expected to make the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

Stubbs has batted .324 with two homers and three steals during Cactus League play. He's coming off an awful season that saw him bat only .195/.283/.382, but his speed, defense and proficiency against lefties could make him a useful bench option.
Mar 27 - 2:24 PM

Drew Stubbs displayed both power and speed in Saturday's 13-6, Cactus League win over the Royals, hitting a three-run home run and stealing two bases on the afternoon.

Stubbs finished 2-for-3. He didn't even start the game but made his impact felt, stealing third base off Danny Duffy and Salvador Perez before taking home on a double steal a few pitches later. Then, in the eighth inning, he hit a three-run home run to break the game open. Stubbs is in camp on a minor league contract but could be forcing his way onto the roster, batting .320 with two homers, two steals and nine RBI through Saturday's game.
Mar 19 - 6:31 PM

Adding financial details, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Drew Stubbs will earn $1.5 million if he makes the Rangers roster.

Stubbs was re-signed on Friday to a minor league contract to provide outfield depth in Texas. With the injury to Josh Hamilton, the door is open for Stubbs should he flash some of power and speed that once made him a sought-after fantasy commodity. He was brutal
Feb 28 - 10:15 PM

Rangers re-signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The Rangers were looking for some outfield depth with Josh Hamilton (knee) slated to begin the season on the disabled list, and they wound up bringing someone back who finished last year with them. Stubbs batted only .195/.283/.382 last season for the Rockies and Rangers, but he's a career .276/.350/.454 hitter versus lefties and can play all three outfield spots.
Feb 26 - 12:29 PM

The Rangers have discussed re-signing Drew Stubbs.

If Texas does decide to bring him back, it will be on a minor league deal. Stubbs is coming off a brutal year but the Rangers need outfield depth with Josh Hamilton battling another knee injury. The 31-year-old has struck out in 33.9 percent of his at-bats since debuting in 2009.
