"We like Stubbs' addition to the club, and he'll be joining us on Friday," Duquette said. "He gives us a good, solid, dependable defensive outfielder. He's got very good speed, and he's shown versatility and good capability to play center and left. And he's also a pretty good base-stealer. It gives us a little more depth. Since we lost Joey Rickard [to a thumb injury on July 21], we've been looking for another outfielder, particularly one that can play center field and the other outfield positions. We think that adding Stubbs, who's very athletic — he was drafted high, No. 8 [overall in 2006] out of Texas. He's got great experience."
