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.

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.

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.

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.

Drew Stubbs hit a walk off three-run home run as the Rockies put together a five-run ninth inning against the Reds in the first game of a double-header on Sunday.

Aroldis Chapman started the inning with a five-run lead, but walked all four batters he faced before departing. The Rockies pushed across two runs before Stubbs belted his two-out, three-run blast off of J.J. Hoover. It's his 12th home run of the season, and he has 35 RBI and a .292/.333/.490 slash line.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Mariners have asked the Rockies about Drew Stubbs.

But Morosi says the Rockies are unsure whether they're going to move the 29-year-old outfielder, who has a career-best .833 OPS with 10 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 82 games this season. Much of that production can be credited to Coors Field, and Colorado would be wise to sell high on the .245/.313/.392 career hitter. But the Rockies front office has always operated in mysterious ways.

Drew Stubbs launched a two-run homer Friday against the Twins.

It was his 10th home run of the season. Four of them have come in his last six games. His playing time is going to take a hit now that Carlos Gonzalez is back from the disabled list, but he still figures to get regular at-bats against left-handed starters at the very least.

Drew Stubbs finished 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Dodgers.

Stubbs also stole his 10th base of the season. He's been getting regular playing time with Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer both on the disabled list, and is worth owning in some deeper mixed fantasy formats until Gonzalez (finger) makes it back. Stubbs has an .807 OPS on the season.

Drew Stubbs went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Dodgers.

Stubbs has received regular playing time in the Rockies' outfield with Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer both sidelined, but his production has predictably dropped off in the process. He's hitting .258 with three homers, three steals, and a 32/6 K/BB ratio in 29 games over the past month. Look for him to move back into a part-time role once Gonzalez returns from the DL.

Drew Stubbs went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple and a stolen base against the Brewers on Sunday.

Stubbs also scored a run in the game. The triple was his second of the year, while the stolen base was his ninth in nine attempts. There'll soon be a logjam of capable outfielders in Colorado, but Stubbs and his .293/.324/.451 line may force the issue.
