He hit a game-winning triple for Team USA in the 2004 FISU II World University Baseball Championship game in Taiwan. Stubbs was the Longhorns co-MVP, named Big 12 co-Player of the Year, and one of five finalists for the Golden Spikes Award in 2006.

Professional career

Stubbs was the first round pick (8th overall) of the Cincinnati Reds in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft. In his 2006 season at the rookie class Billings Mustangs, Stubbs batted .256 with six home runs and 24 RBIs in 56 games, including three triples, in 210 at-bats.

Earning a promotion to the Class A Dayton Dragons (the low A team), he batted .270 with 12 home runs, 43 RBIs, and 23 stolen bases in 129 games, including an 11-game hit streak to start the year. His performance earned him a spot in the Midwest League All-Star Game. After the season he was named the 10th best prospect in the Midwest League and the 5th best in the Reds' organization by Baseball America.

In the 2008 season Stubbs started with the Class A Sarasota Reds (the high A team), then was promoted to the Class AA Chattanooga Lookouts, and finally to the Class AAA Louisville Bats. In a combined 131 plate appearances, he batted .277 with 7 home runs, 57 RBIs, and 33 stolen bases. His 33 steals led all Reds minor leaguers.

Stubbs represented the U.S. in the 2009 All-Star Futures Game. As of 2009, he was ranked as the Reds' 3rd best prospect behind 1B Yonder Alonso and SS Todd Frazier.

Stubbs made his Major League Debut on August 19, 2009. In his second game, he hit a game winning home run to beat the San Francisco Giants. He finished the season with a .260 average and 8 home runs. Drew is projected to make the 2010 Reds Opening Day Roster.
