SAN DIEGO -- This has been a tough season for outfielder Drew Stubbs. A former No. 1 pick by the Reds in 2006, Stubbs was an everyday player for Cincinnati in 2009-12, in Cleveland in 2013 and in Colorado last season. That wasn't the case this season, but he still finds himself on a playoff contender going into September.
The Rangers added Stubbs to their 40-man roster Tuesday and will use him as a reserve outfielder for the final month of the season. His primary role could be as a pinch-runner.
