Stubbs smacked a solo home run in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Braves.

Stubbs earned the rare start because a lefty in Alex Wood was scheduled to take the hill for the Braves, but the Rockies' lineup maneuver appeared to be spoiled when a two-hour, six-minute resulted in Wood's night ending after just two pitches. However, that didn't prevent Stubbs from coming through without the platoon advantage in his favor, as he teed off against righty reliever Jacob Brigham in the second inning for his fourth homer of the season. Alas, Stubbs would strike out in two of his other three plate appearances on the evening, a disconcerting trend that shouldn't result in a spike in playing time. Stubbs has struck out in a mind-boggling 52.1 percent of the time this season, the most of anyone in the majors -- pitchers included -- with at least 40 plate appearances.

Stubbs connected on his third home run of the season in Tuesday's 10-2 loss to the Angels.

Stubbs' homer was the only extra-base hit the Rockies could muster against Andrew Heaney, whose steady performance in the place of Chad Bettis' early implosion allowed the Angels to run away with the victory. Though he earned a start Tuesday at the expense of Ben Paulsen and Brandon Barnes, Stubbs has a long way to go before he earns consideration for more frequent at-bats. He owns a .182 on-base percentage this season and has struck out in a startling 52.2 percent of his 67 plate appearances.

Stubbs was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Stubbs will likely serve a an additional outfielder while Corey Dickerson remains on the shelf, as Rafael Ynoa was sent down in a corresponding move. He's not in the lineup Thursday, but will be available off the bench.

Stubbs is batting .241/.364/.333 over 132 plate appearances at Triple-A Albuquerque since his demotion in May.

The Rockies could be in need of an extra outfielder with Corey Dickerson (foot) recently landing back on the DL and Carlos Gonzalez slowed by a hand injury, but Stubbs isn't really making much of a case for a promotion. His 96 wRC+ at Triple-A shows that he's providing close to average production after adjusting for his park and league level. That would be acceptable if Stubbs were a young prospect seeing Triple-A pitching for the first time, but he's a 30-year-old veteran with 788 career MLB games under his belt.

Stubbs was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Stubbs posted an extremely poor start to the 2015 season, batting .118 through 24 games despite sticking in the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. He'll head to the minors in an attempt to collect himself, while the Rockies recalled Brandon Barnes to take his place on the 25-man roster.

With the Rockies mulling the idea of placing Corey Dickerson (foot) on the disabled list, Stubbs could be in line for regular at-bats, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Stubbs has already started the last five games in center field, but hasn't been able to break out of his season-long funk just yet. During that stretch of starts, he's gone just 2-for-14 at the dish with seven strikeouts, keeping his average at .109 and his on-base percentage at .180 for the year. Stubbs' low-contact tendencies have made his average vulnerable throughout his career, but his ability to steal bases and hit for pop on the few occasions he's not whiffing makes him a useful target for fantasy owners looking to build up their counting totals. With the Rockies set to begin an eight-game homestand Monday and Dickerson uncertain to be available, Stubbs could finally bust out. For all his shortcomings, Stubbs took full advantage last season of the favorable hitting confines of Coors Field, where he batted an astounding .356 to go along with 12 homers and 33 RBI over 225 plate appearances.

Stubbs will start in center field and bat seventh Saturday against the Dodgers.

Stubbs went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk while appearing in both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Both of Stubbs' hits this season have gone for home runs, but it's come with a woeful .071 batting average and .161 on-base percentage. While additional plate appearances could be on the horizon for Stubbs if Corey Dickerson's setback with plantar fasciitis opens up an outfield spot, he may need to dramatically curb his strikeouts (17 in 28 at-bats) to deliver consistent fantasy utility in deep leagues.
