The eighth overall pick in the 2006 draft is headed to Louisville.
The Reds promoted Double-A Chattanooga center fielder Drew Stubbs to Triple-A, putting the 23-year-old one step away from the big leagues. Stubbs, who has 70 speed on the 20-80 scouting scale and good raw power, began the year with high Class A Sarasota, where he hit .261/.366/.406 in 86 games. In 26 games with Chattanooga, Stubbs batted .314/.400/.402.
Of the other top ten picks from the 2006 draft, eight have already reached the big leagues: Luke Hochevar, Greg Reynolds, Evan Longoria, Brandon Morrow, Andrew Miller, Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum, with Kershaw the lone high school pick. The other two—Pirates righthander Brad Lincoln (No. 4 overall out of Houstin) and Orioles third baseman Billy Rowell (No. 9 out of a New Jersey high school) are still in the minors.
