Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 35 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

After hitting .240 in his first three seasons at Southern California, Stubbs batted .346 with 20 steals as a senior in 2015, when he won the Johnny Bench Award as the top college catcher as well as Pacific-12 Conference defensive player of the year honors. An eighth-rounder that June, he reached Double-A in his first full season but stalled there in 2017. He rebounded last year in Triple-A to claim a spot on Houston's 40-man roster.

Stubbs makes repeated contact with a simple left-handed swing and controls the strike zone better than any Astros product. He made a conscious effort to drive the ball more last year, though he's not very physical and his power will come more in the form of doubles than home runs. Extremely athletic for a catcher, he has average speed and knows what he's doing on the bases.

Stubbs moves well behind the plate and shows solid receiving skills. He has arm strength to match and it plays up because of his quick transfer, enabling him to throw out 44 percent of basestealers in his first four years as a pro. His biggest drawback is that he's just 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds and wears down over the course of a season, making him more of a backup because he won't hold up as a regular.
