Rangers | Drew Stubbs placed on disabled list

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:26:37 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Drew Stubbs (toe) was placed on the disabled list Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: With both Stubbs and Shin-Soo Choo landing on the DL, this may provide the biggest boost for top prospect Joey Gallo, who was just called up by the team. Although he hasn't played the outfield yet this season, he'll probably get some starts out there to get his bat in the lineup, and he'll also get time at first base and designated hitter. Outfielders Ryan Rya and Jared Hoying -- who was also just promoted -- will benefit, too.

Rangers | Texas sitting three starters

Sun, 22 May 2016 10:30:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (hamstring), 2B Rougned Odor and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, May 22. OF Drew Stubbs will start in right field and is batting first. OF Ryan Rua will start at first base and is batting seventh, while 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs, Rua and Alberto have all posted disappointing numbers over the past seven days and can all be avoided in daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara out vs. lefty

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:18:25 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Wednesday, May 18. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in right field and is hitting eighth. OF Ian Desmond is hitting in the two-hole again.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs has three hits in just eight at-bats with the Rangers, including a home run, but he remains a low-end daily candidate. Speed is his best asset, and it'll be tougher to utilize it hitting so low in the order. Desmond has come on strong lately and is hitting .318 with three home runs and 15 RBI in May. He's also hitting .350 with three of his six long balls against lefties. Desmond makes a fine addition to any daily lineups today.

Rangers | Drew Stubbs wins with walkoff homer

Sat, 14 May 2016 22:16:01 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Drew Stubbs hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday, May 14, as Texas beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-5.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, Stubbs has decreased fantasy value because he does not have a regular role yet. Stubbs plays left field, which may not be an option down the road if Josh Hamilton comes back healthy. With Ian Desmond and Nomar Mazara also playing in the outfield, and Shin-Soo Choo coming back soon, there won't be many places for Stubbs to play. He's worth a pickup in very deep leagues, but leave him alone in the majority of formats.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara, Mitch Moreland resting

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:37:52 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, May 10. OF Drew Stubbs is in right field and batting ninth, while OF Ryan Rua is starting at first base and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs' value is based on speed, and he'll have few chances to utilize it hitting ninth. He's a very weak daily pick. Rua hits much better against lefties (.368 in 19 at-bats), so he might be worth a selection as a deep sleeper if you're looking to save some salary cap space.

Rangers | Drew Stubbs signed

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:50:22 -0700

The Texas Rangers have signed free-agent OF Drew Stubbs (Braves) to a major-league contract. He is expected to serve as a reserve outfielder even though OF Delino DeShields Jr. has struggled at the plate this season. In corresponding moves, P Alex Claudio was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock and OF Josh Hamilton (knee) was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how much playing time Stubbs will receive but he is not worth rostering outside of AL-only fantasy leagues. The 31-year-old hit .237 with a home run and three RBI in 38 at-bats for Atlanta earlier this year.

Braves | Mallex Smith sits again

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:46:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Mallex Smith is out of the lineup Friday, April 29, with OF Drew Stubbs hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: It's worth noting that it's against lefty Jon Lester, but Stubbs has now started three of the last four games. Stubbs is 0-for-8 lifetime against Lester and doesn't make a great DFS flyer. He does have four steals on the year, and he's worth owning in NL-only leagues.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur, Drew Stubbs in lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:08:18 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur and OF Drew Stubbs are in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday, April 27. Francoeur will start in left field and is batting fifth, while Stubbs will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has picked up at least one hit in five of his last six games with two RBI during that span. Stubbs has recorded five hits in his last 11 games but did go 2-for-3 in his last game. Francoeur likely is more valuable than Stubbs in most leagues and could be a desperation option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Owners should avoid Stubbs in most leagues.

Braves | Mallex Smith, Drew Stubbs sharing center

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:40:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves OFs Mallex Smith and Drew Stubbs will start against right- and left-handed pitchers, respectively, until OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has the most fantasy value because of his speed, and the fact that his side of the platoon projects to yield more at-bats. However, Inciarte is approximately two weeks away from returning to the Braves, so Smith and Stubbs only have fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats.
