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.

August 5, 2017 02:20 PM
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.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Low batting average at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs, 24, is batting .237/.325/.340 with four home runs, 24 RBI and eight steals through 68 games for Double-A Corpus Christi.

Stubbs hit .304 last year, so 2017 has clearly been a disappointment in terms of his batting average, even as he has accumulated almost as many walks as strikeouts. His home runs and steals are down as well, though he does have double-digit potential in both areas.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Activated from 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs (hamstring) was activated Sunday from the 7-day disabled list at Double-A Corpus Christi, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 23-year-old appeared in only four games for Corpus Christi before succumbing to the hamstring injury, which kept him sidelined for two weeks. It shouldn't be a major setback in the development of Stubbs, who remains the Astros' top catching prospect.

April 18, 2017 12:08 PM
Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Placed on 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs has landed on the 7-day disabled list with Double-A Corpus Christi due to a hamstring injury, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Astros' top catching prospect, Stubbs hasn't played in more than a week while nursing the injury, and it's unclear when he'll be able to come off the DL. The 23-year-old's athleticism should allow him to stick behind the plate as he rises through the system, but his performance as a hitter is what those who own the backstop in dynasty leagues will want to track. He slashed .325/.401/.517 across 137 plate appearances with Corpus Christi in the second half of last season.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Makes spring debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs (shoulder) entered Sunday's game against the Yankees in the seventh inning and caught the rest of the game.

Stubbs developed a shoulder issue early in camp and hadn't gotten into any games until Sunday. His defense is top-notch, particularly in the area of controlling the running game. Developing a competent bat will be a focus over the next 12 months.

March 12, 2017 09:32 AM
Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Assigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs (shoulder) was assigned to the Astros' minor-league camp Sunday, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs hadn't been able to play in any Grapefruit League games while battling shoulder discomfort when camp opened in September, so it was an easy decision for the Astros to dispatch him to the minors in the first round of cuts. The organization hasn't provided any indication that Stubbs' injury is a long-term concern, so it may not be long before he's able to take the field again. Look for Stubbs to open the season at Double-A Corpus Christi after slashing .325/.401/.517 across 137 plate appearances with the club in 2016.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs (shoulder) didn't throw for the third straight day because of discomfort in his shoulder, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

It doesn't seem too serious, but the Astros are playing it safe with the 23-year-old, who is being held out of Grapefruit League games for the time-being. He slashes .304/.391/.469 in 86 games last season between High-A and Double-A, and he'll likely work in the minors again in 2017.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Builds mass in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs reported to training camp weighing 10 pounds heavier than when he finished playing in the Arizona Fall League last November, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Stubbs, the organization's seventh-ranked prospect according to RotoWire, is the catcher closest to the major leagues after reaching Double-A Corpus Christi in 2016. Between High-A Lancaster and his time with the Double-A Hooks, he slashed /304/.391/.469/.860 and was actually better after leaving the hitter-smooching High-A California League. The Astros want to see the slight-framed catcher bulk up to better handle the rigors of catching long term. He'll reach Triple-A this season and is on schedule for MLB in 2018 or 2019.
