Stubbs headed to Dayton
As strongly indicated on Wednesday, Reds CF Drew Stubbs will start a rehab assignment on Friday. It will be with Class A Dayton, the Reds’ affiliate announced Thursday.
It’s unknown how many games Stubbs will play for Dayton, but I’d expect only two or three.
Stubbs has not played for the Reds since straining his left oblique on June 5. He went on the DL last Friday and is eligible for activation tomorrow, but clearly the club wants to have this one final test first. Stubbs took batting practice Wednesday without issue.
