Stubbs has also been consistent in having a K/BB around 2. It was 3.25 in his major league stint. Stubbs's advancement has been gradual and he has shown an ability to adjust at each level. While this may be no guarantee that he will improve, I think that an argument can be made that he will improve. Let's see how it plays out. We might even have our answer before spring training ends.
