Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Joins postseason roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros recalled Stubbs from their alternate training site Tuesday ahead of the team's wild-card opener against the Twins.

Stubbs will serve as Houston's third catcher during the postseason, providing depth behind Martin Maldonado and Dustin Garneau. The 27-year-old appeared in 14 games during the regular season, going 1-for-8 at the dish.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Moves to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday and will remain with the team on the taxi squad, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 27-year-old earned a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he'll be removed from the active roster with Josh James (hip) returning from the injured list. Stubbs went 1-for-8 with one run and one RBI in 14 appearances this season.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Officially makes roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs is part of Houston's 30-man roster, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

As expected, Stubbs will open the season with the Astros thanks to expanded rosters. He'll serve as the team's third catcher for now, though the team has also talked about potentially using him at other positions.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Benefits from expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs will likely be part of the Astros' expanded roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Stubbs lost out on the backup catcher job to Dustin Garneau in spring training and was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock, but the luxury of an expanded roster means Houston can carry a third catcher. The Astros have talked about using Stubbs at other positions, which could benefit him as the team trims its roster from 30 to 28 two weeks into the season, then from 28 to 26 two weeks later.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Ushered to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs impressed in his limited opportunities before Spring Training was suspended, slashing .455/.625/.727 with a homer and two steals in 16 plate appearances, but it wasn't enough for him to beat out Dustin Garneau for the job as Houston's backup catcher.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Hitting well during spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs is batting .455 (5-for-11) with a home run, two RBI and two stolen bases over 10 spring games.

Stubbs is competing with Dustin Garneau to be the backup catcher to starter Martin Maldonado. Stubbs has experience in the outfield as well as catcher and brings a modicum of speed (47 SB in minors), so he could land as the 26th man for the Astros, if he doesn't win the No. 2 catcher job.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: To see infield work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs is expected to get looks in the infield during spring training, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Stubbs saw time in the outfield with the Astros a season ago, manning left field in seven contests. It would certainly make him a more valuable ballplayer if he's able to add a few infield positions to his repertoire.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Scores three runs off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs went 1-for-1 with a double, a walk and three runs Sunday in the Astros' 21-1 win over the Mariners.

Stubbs was making just his second appearance with the Astros since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Sept. 2. With the Astros leading 13-0 after three innings, manager AJ Hinch pulled a couple key regulars early, allowing Stubbs and Myles Straw (3-for-3 with an RBI and three runs) to produce big lines off the bench. Though Stubbs was used in left field Sunday, he'll primarily serve as insurance at catcher behind Robinson Chirinos and Martin Maldonado in the season's final month.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Joins big club as No. 3 catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros recalled Stubbs from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Monday's game against the Brewers, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

He'll join Houston as the club's No. 3 catcher, a role that likely won't afford him many regular starts in September. Instead, Stubbs will merely function as insurance behind veterans Robinson Chirinos and Martin Maldonado, the clear top two options on the depth chart.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Stubbs was recalled from Round Rock last week when Robinson Chirinos was dealing with a shoulder injury, but he'll be sent back down now that Chirinos is healthy. Stubbs figures to rejoin the Astros once rosters expand in September, but he's unlikely to see much of a workload.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Stubbs is set to serve as the backup catcher Friday evening after the Astros announced that Robinson Chirinos is unavailable due to shoulder soreness. Stubbs has appeared in eight games this season for Houston and is 4-for-25 with two RBI and a stolen base over that brief stretch.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs slashed .160/.192/.200 in 26 plate appearances since being called up in late May after Max Stassi (knee) landed on the injured list. Stubbs received six starts during his first major-league stint and makes his way back to the minors with Stassi returning to action.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Hitless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Stubbs made just his third start in the last 10 games and sixth overall. The catching prospect's first exposure to MLB was not expected to last long, and it may be coming to a close as early as this weekend after the injured Max Stassi (knee) caught nine innings on consecutive days Tuesday and Wednesday. Stubbs is 4-for-25 (.160) in eight games (six starts) since being called up in late May.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Catching Cole
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs will start against Oakland on Sunday with Gerrit Cole on the mound, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This will be Stubbs' second start since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock as a replacement for the injured Max Stassi (knee). He had a pair of hits, including a double, and an RBI in his previous start, which was his MLB debut. Robinson Chirinos, who has started seven of the last eight games, gets a well-deserved break.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Gets call to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros will recall Stubbs from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The organization's top catching prospect, Stubbs gets his first call to the big leagues after fellow backstop Max Stassi suffered a left knee injury in Saturday's game. It's unclear if Stassi's setback is serious enough to warrant a trip to the injured list, but Stubbs should at least serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Robinson Chirinos while Stassi is day-to-day.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Shifts to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Stubbs to their minor-league camp Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs is likely in line to spend a third consecutive season at the Triple-A level, this time at Round Rock after spending the previous two campaigns with Fresno. There isn't currently an opening for Stubbs in the majors with Robinson Chirinos and Max Stassi locked in as the top two catchers, but the 25-year-old may be first in line for a promotion if an injury should arise.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Joins 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was added to Houston's 40-man roster Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs will be shielded from the Rule 5 draft following the Astros' latest move. He's advanced to Triple-A Fresno in each of the last two seasons and appears to be closing in on his big-league debut after slashing .310/.382/.455 with four homers and 38 RBI over 84 games with the Grizzlies in 2018.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Clubs second homer of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs went 1-for-4 with a home run for Triple-A Fresno in its 5-4 loss to El Paso on Wednesday.

It was only the second long ball in 179 plate appearances on the season for Stubbs, but power has never been regarded as a major component of the backstop's game. Instead, Stubbs draws raves for his exceptional bat-to-ball and on-base skills, which are evident in his meager 15.6 percent strikeout rate and 9.8 percent walk rate, the latter of which is actually his lowest mark at any stop of the minors. An inflated .403 BABIP has propped Stubbs' average up to .346, but his aforementioned plate approach should allow him to at least be a neutral asset in that category when he hits the majors. There are more questions about Stubbs' ability to handle the rigors of catching, however, as he has already proven susceptible to injury during his young pro career and lacks ideal size for the position (5-foot-10, 175 pounds).

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Reassigned to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros reassigned Stubbs to their minor-league camp Sunday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

The Astros appear set to keep three catchers for their Opening Day roster, but the battle for the final spot has come down to Max Stassi and Tim Federowicz rather than Stubbs, who is less of a finished product and still in need of a full-time role. Since that wouldn't have been available to him at the big-league level, Stubbs will likely report to Triple-A Fresno when the season begins and hold down an everyday role behind the dish. Following his late-season callup to Fresno in 2017, Stubbs logged 91 plate appearances and slashed .221/.341/.286 while going 3-for-3 on stolen-base attempts.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs was promoted to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs didn't exactly rake with Double-A Corpus Christi, slashing just .236/.324/.331 in 300 plate appearances to begin 2017. However, with Juan Centeno moving up to the big club to replace Evan Gattis (concussion), Stubbs will get his first opportunity with the top minor-league affiliate. His speed at the catcher position makes Stubbs somewhat intriguing in dynasty leagues, but he is a work in progress at the dish, and there are questions about his ability to hold up to the rigors of catching duties.
