It's possible Dusty meant as a pinch runner, or a defensive replacement, or for another team, or in a different profession. But most likely, Dusty meant that Drew will be back playing most of the time in CF.
As others have said, the Reds value his defense. I'd expect Stubbs as the primary CFer until the team acquires a new player, maybe this off-season.
Stubbs will still get PT was all Dusty was saying. I really feel going forward Stubbs will get less time. Dusty held a closed-door, 30 minute meeting with Stubbs. To me, that screams "We're making some changes, keep your head up." Of course, it's all speculation. But Dusty is trying to handle this with respect for Stubbs, while doing what's best for the team. Which is playing Stubbs less.
