Pain-free Stubbs set for Monday return
CINCINNATI -- Reds fans may see a familiar face in the lineup Monday night as center fielder Drew Stubbs is set to make his return to Cincinnati after three rehab appearances in Class A Dayton.

Stubbs, who has been out since June 6 with a strained left oblique, made his second of three scheduled starts for Dayton on Saturday, again playing without pain.

Stubbs played seven innings in the 6-3 loss, going 0-for-4 at the plate with one strikeout.

Stubbs played five innings Friday night with an 0-for-2 showing at the plate, and is set to play a full nine innings Sunday before returning to the club Monday.

"That's the plan, but I have a lot of plans," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It depends on how he feels. I'm sure he'll be back here, probably."
