Look at Drew Stubbs on the wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (4/26/2013) Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs was tabbed by Nando Di Fino as his "Flavor of the Week" in his waiver-wire analysis, as he thinks Stubbs is about to get hot.
Stubbs is hitting .320 in the last seven games, upping his batting average to a much more palatable .250 for the year. He will never help you out in that category, but if he can avoid hovering near the Mendoza line after a slow start, Stubbs will be well worth your time. Don't forget Stubbs' three straight seasons of at least 14 home runs and 30 stolen bases.
If Fantasy owners are looking for a speculative pickup off the wire, Stubbs might be able to provide a boost.
