Stubbs takes BP, likely to get rehab assignment
CLEVELAND -- Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs (strained left oblique) took early batting practice on the field Wednesday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

"I took a lot of swings. Everything felt good," Stubbs said. "I feel ready and physically capable. Obviously I've sat out for two weeks, but I'm anxious to get back as soon as I can."

Although eligible to be activated on Friday, Stubbs is likely headed for a rehab assignment in the Minors first.

"That's a very good possibility," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We think it's the best for him and us. We don't need him to come back and be struggling. You can take BP, but there's nothing like live pitching where you have to go get it."
