Reds manager Dusty Baker didn't believe Stubbs, who came in batting .222 for the season, was showing effects from the injury.
"He said he's feeling good," Baker said. "A lot of times when you're off, you come back quick and you're timing is still off. Plus, we've been facing [Matt] Cain, [Madison] Bumgarner and you're going to be off sometimes whether you're healthy or not. We knew coming into this stretch we would see some good pitching."
