 Biographical Information
Outfielder Drew Stubbs was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round of the 2006 amateur draft after being a two-time All-American at the University of Texas. The scout was Brian Wilson. He made his pro debut that year with the Billings Mustangs, hitting .252 with 6 home runs and 19 stolen bases. He reached the major leagues for the first time with the Reds in August of 2009.
Stubbs is one of the fastest players in the game, and to take advantage of his speed, the Reds batted him Leadoff at the start of the 2011 season. However, he was unable to maintain a high enough on-base percentage to make the move profitable, hitting only .243 on the year, with an OBP of .321. What jumped out most however were his 205 strikeouts, a club record that made him only the second player after Mark Reynolds (who had done it thrice) to strike out over 200 times in a season. He did hit 15 home runs, but drove in only 44 runs as a result of his different role. He did steal 40 bases and score 92 runs, but his OPS+ was only 86, well below average. In 2012, manager Dusty Baker moved him to a lower spot in the batting order. He hit .213 in 136 games, with 14 homers, 40 RBI and 75 runs scored, stealing 30 bases as the Reds won a division title. He went 4 for 19 (.211) with a double and a triple in the Reds' loss to the San Francisco Giants in the NLDS. On December 11th, he was traded to the Cleveland Indians along with SS Didi Gregorius in return for OF Shin-Soo Choo and IF Jason Donald.
His brother Clint Stubbs was drafted in 2006 but did not sign then was undrafted out of college.
