Stubbs begins exercising strained oblique

CINCINNATI -- Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs, who missed his third straight game due to a strained left oblique muscle, has started doing some exercises.

"I did some cardiovascular work to get loose and did some core work to kind of engage it and see how it feels," Stubbs said on Friday. "I'm not in any pain or anything."

Stubbs has yet to try any baseball-related activity. He is awaiting the green light from the medical staff.
