Stubbs made his first start for the Orioles on Wednesday and went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Stubbs was 0-for-3 while coming off the bench since being claimed by the Orioles a week ago. He has a career .274/.349/.449 slash line against left-handers, which is likely why he got the start against Drew Smyly. Stubbs went 1-for-2 with an infield single against Smyly before right-handed relief took over. Stubbs will remain in a crowded outfield mix with Steve Pearce, Hyun Soo Kim, Nolan Reimold and Michael Bourn on the roster.

Stubbs was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Wednesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

When healthy, the Orioles have a starting outfield of Hyun Soo Kim, Adam Jones, and Mark Trumbo. While Stubbs line of .259/.343/.414 isn't enough to take a spot from any of the aforementioned players, he'll add valuable depth to the Baltimore roster. It's expected that he'll join the team Friday for their series opener against the Yankees.

Stubbs refused his assignment to the minors and was placed on irrevocable waivers Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers had designated Stubbs for assignment last week after acquiring Carlos Gomez, but the 31-year-old declined going to the minor leagues. He'll now look to continue his season elsewhere and it's possible there will be some interest on the waiver wire especially once rosters expand in September, but the veteran had been hitting a combined .259 through 39 games this season with the Braves and Rangers.

Stubbs was designated for assignment Thursday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Carlos Gomez's activation Thursday, the club needed to clear space on the roster and Stubbs became the casualty. The 31-year-old has missed a large portion of the season with a toe injury and has thus been limited to just 39 games at the big league level in 2016, where he's slashed a combined .259/.343/.414 with the Braves and Rangers. He could be a candidate to rejoin the major league roster as outfield depth when rosters expand.

Stubbs (toe) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stubbs, who went down with his injury on May 22, is officially back with the club after a lengthy rehab assignment. During his rehab games, Stubbs went 11-for-48 (.229) with two home runs and four doubles. Now that he's back with the Rangers, he'll add depth to an outfield that features Nomar Mazara, Ian Desmond, and Shin-Soo Choo.

Stubbs (toe) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stubbs has been sidelined since late May with a sprained left toe, so he figures to spend at least most of the week with Round Rock before the Rangers would consider activating him. Even with Shin-Soo Choo (back) hitting the DL, the Rangers boast plenty of depth in the outfield, making it likely that Stubbs would be no better than a fourth or fifth outfielder for the club once he returns.

Stubbs (toe) received a cortisone injection Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stubbs remains at least a week away from embarking on a rehab assignment, but since receiving the shot he's returned to all baseball activities. Of course, a cortisone shot is far from a permanent solution, but it could help to accelerate Stubbs' return to the Rangers.

Stubbs (toe) is at least a week away from beginning a rehab assignment, Ryan Posner of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stubbs seemed destined for a toe injury at some point given his surname, and it seems that end up missing at least a month of action as a result of this. He'll be returning to an outfield that will have added Shin Soo-Choo to the current mix, making a reserve role upon his return all but guaranteed.
