Drew Stubbs CF/RF COL 5 Hrs
Stubbs went 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.
Perhaps no Rockies player has exhibited the value of playing at Coors Field better than Stubbs this season. After Tuesday's performance, he's slashing .353/.384/.617 at home compared to a dismal .210/.283/.317 on the road. The stark differential has also been reflected in his counting stats, as Stubbs has provided 12 of his 14 homers and 32 of his 41 RBI on the season at home.

Stubbs went 1-for-3 with a double, walk and stolen base in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Mets.
He had the most offensive impact Wednesday for the Rockies, who were shut out by the Mets for the second consecutive night. Stubbs has started two of the three games since Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) returned from the disabled list Monday, and will likely have to contend with Charlie Blackmon for semi-regular duty in center field the rest of the way.

Stubbs is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Stubbs has started four of the past five games in center field for the Rockies, but will receive a regular day off Sunday afternoon. In his stead, Charlie Blackmon will move over to cover center field, while Ben Paulsen draws the start in right. Stubbs has hit safely in four of five games to start the month of September, and is slashing .289/.330/.480 on the season.

Stubbs smacked his 14th homer of the year off Padres starter Eric Stults on Friday, as he went 1-for-4 with a run scored and one RBI.
While he's not an everyday player, Stubbs has certainly made the most of his at-bats as he's currently hitting .291 on the season - a career high. If Stubbs received a few more at-bats this year, he may have been in line for a 20/20 season. Keep in mind down the stretch that Stubbs has horrific home/road splits hitting .362 in Colorado and .209 away.

Stubbs is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Giants.
Stubbs will take the day off Wednesday following a 2-for-4 night at the plate that included a stolen base and three runs scored. Charlie Blackmon will move to center and Ben Paulsen will enter the lineup in right for the Rockies on Wednesday, batting sixth.

Stubbs went 2-for-4 with a double, stolen base and three runs scored in Tuesday's 12-7 loss to the Giants.
The performance was quite the breakthrough for Stubbs, who with the three runs and the stolen base, matched his outputs in both categories from the last six games combined. He'll likely continue to hold down a starting job through at least next week, when Michael Cuddyer's expected return from the DL will bump him back to fourth-outfielder duties.

Stubbs is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Stubbs will sit Sunday after a 0-for-4, two-strikeout night at the plate Saturday. Brndon Barnes gets the start in right field Saturday and will bat sixth for the Rockies.

Stubbs is out of the lineup Thursday against the Giants.
Michael Cuddyer's placement on the DL last weekend with a hamstring issue has thrust Stubbs back into a regular role, but manager Walt Weiss will likely continue to get him occasional rests against right-handed starters. Charlie Blackmon will return to center field Thursday with Brandon Barnes in left. Stubbs is batting .304/.355/.471 with three homers and five steals since the All-Star break.
Drew Stubbs CF/RF COL 23 Days
Stubbs should continue to receive regular playing time following Michael Cuddyer's hamstring placement on the 15-day DL on Sunday.
Activated from the DL on Aug. 16, Cuddyer lasted just over a week before he was felled by another injury. As a result, fantasy owners who held on to Stubbs after Cuddyer's activation will be rewarded, as the outfielder continued his excellent season with three hits, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Marlins. As is the case with many Rockies hitters, Stubbs' numbers get a massive bump at Coors Field, so he may not be the best option in deeper leagues this week with Colorado set to play seven games on the road.

Stubbs clubbed his 13th home run of the year, while going 3-for-4 at the plate with a walk and adding a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's game against the Royals
Stubbs continues to fly under the radar with 13 home runs, 15 stolen bases and a .300/.343/.508 slash line in 303 at-bats. With the injuries the Rockies have endured, Stubbs may see an increase in playing time if he keeps this up.
