Lineup, Stubbs note
From STATS Inc.
After Drew Stubbs went 2-for-2 as an in-game replacement on Opening Day, Reds manager Dusty Baker moved him into the leadoff spot. Stubbs was hitting .174/.267/.283 in 26 games when the experiment ended on May 5. Since then, he’s batting .266/.331/.463 in 115 games, with 18 home runs and 64 RBIs.
Among Reds players over this span, only Joey Votto (30) has more home runs, and Stubbs ranks fourth in RBIs. Stubbs, who leads Reds regulars with 25 steals and an 80.6 steal percentage, has been showing more patience and pop. In his last 40 games, he has batted .298/.373/.525 with nine doubles, seven homers and 23 RBIs.
