Stubbs under the weather, misses BP
CINCINNATI -- Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs, who has not played since June 5 because of a strained left oblique muscle, was unable to take batting practice again on Wednesday because he was sick. He also didn't take BP as planned on Tuesday.

Stubbs missed his seventh straight game as the Reds played the middle game against the Indians.

"We've got to address that too and where he is," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It's been a little over a week. We're reluctant to use him at this point."

If the Reds use Stubbs in a game, they would be unable to backdate a potential disabled list move to June 6. However, there are no current plans to place him on the DL.

"We haven't talked about it yet," Baker said.
