Drew Stubbs

Here was John's comment from the book on Stubbs:

http://www.minorleagueball.com/2007/12/7/143649/622

He's since been promoted to AAA Louisville.  His  numbers across 3 levels:

High-A Sarasota: .261/.366/.406, 21 2B, 4 3B, 5 HR, 50BB, 82K, 27/35SB in 303 AB
AA Chattanooga: .315/.400/.402, 8 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 11BB, 21K, 3/4SB in 92 AB
AAA Louisville: .316/.381/.579, 2 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 3 BB, 7K, 2/2 SB in 38 AB

2008 Totals: .277/.374/.420, 31 2B, 5 3B, 7 HR, 64BB, 110K, 32/41 SB in 433 AB

Obviously, sample size caveats apply to the AA/AAA numbers, but he looks to be improving the strikeout rate, which was his major red flag coming into the season, and maintaining a nice walk rate in the high minors.   The power numbers aren't spectacular, however, Sarasota and Chattanooga are both pitchers' environments, and he looks to be hitting the ball with some authority thus far at AAA.  He also has a tremendous defensive reputation, with some going as far as to say he could contend for a gold glove in CF today.

So, what are the projections for Stubbs now?  Nice 4th OF?  Ryan Sweeney with speed?  Perennial .380 OBP, 20/20 leadoff hitter?  Does the strikeout rate still worry you?  Do you anticipate any further power development?  Yeah, I know that's a lot of questions.

Just curious on people's thoughts on Stubbs now that the production appears to be catching up to his scouting reports.
