Description: Minnesota DH/OF Jason Kubel has been designated for assignment.
Insight: The Twins needed to clear a roster spot to make room for Kendrys Morales. Kubel (.224, 1 HR, 13 RBI) hasn't done much this year so it's no surprise that he's the odd man out.
 
4/25/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Twins OF/DH Jason Kubel is a career .433 hitter (13-for-30) versus Detroit starter Rick Porcello.
Insight: Kubel batting .294 with an .803 OPS, though he has just three hits in his last 18 at-bats.
 
Cold4/24/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Twins OF/DH Jason Kubel is a career .100 hitter (1-for-10) versus Rays starter Erik Bedard.
Insight: Kubel is also 1-for-10 in the first two games of the series with seven strikeouts. Avoid.
 
Hot4/12/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Twins OF/DH Jason Kubel is a career .391 hitter (9-for-23) versus Royals ace James Shields.
Insight: Kubel is off to a hot start, batting .412 through the first nine games and has a six-game hitting streak. Add in a favorable matchup and he's a solid start on Saturday.
 
4/9/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: Twins DH Jason Kubel went 4-for-5 with a solo homer Wednesday against Oakland.
Insight: Prior to Wednesday's game, Kubel had hit just 12 homers in 112 games at Target Field. He's hitting .462 with five runs, four doubles, one homer, six RBI and a 1.212 OPS this season after batting .216 with five homers in 97 games a year ago.
 
4/6/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Indians starter Justin Masterson has limited Twins DH Jason Kubel to three hits in 17 at-bats (.176).
Insight: Kubel, back with Minnesota after two years in Arizona and eight games with Cleveland, has hit .385 with two doubles and three RBI in four games this season. He usually hits righties well but has never had success against Masterson.
 
3/25/2014 11:02:00 PM
Description: Jason Kubel was informed Tuesday that he has made the Twins 25-man roster. The 31-year-old is expected to see time as a designated hitter and backup outfielder this season. SOURCE: mlb.com
Insight: Kubel had just five homers, a .216 average and a .610 OPS in 97 games with Arizona and Cleveland last season after hitting 30 homers with 90 RBI and an .833 OPS for the D'Backs in 2012. Kubel hit .273 and 94 home runs with the Twins from 2007-11, though he owns a .254 average and .724 OPS in 111 games at Target Field and shouldn't be owned in most fantasy leagues.
 
12/13/2013 3:36:00 PM
Description: OF/DH Jason Kubel has signed a minor league deal with Minnesota.
Insight: Some of Kubel's best seasons have come in Minnesota. He hit 30 homers for Arizona in 2012 before completely falling off the map last season (.216, 5 HR, 32 RBI). Kubel should be comfortable back in Minnesota where he played for seven seasons, though Target Field isn't always kind to power hitters.
 
9/11/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Cleveland OF/DH Jason Kubel is a career .450 hitter (9-for-20) against Royals right-hander James Shields.
Insight: It was just a season ago that Kubel posted 30 HR and 90 RBI for the D'backs, but his production has been non-existent this season (.220, 5 HR, 32 RBI).
 
Cold9/9/2013 12:33:00 PM
Description: Cleveland OF/DH Jason Kubel is a career .190 hitter (4-for-21) with no extra base hits and six strikeouts versus Royals starter Ervin Santana.
Insight: It was just a season ago that Kubel posted 30 HR and 90 RBI for the D'backs, but his production has been non-existent this season (.223, 5 HR, 32 RBI). The Indians' other DH option, Jason Giambi, is even worse (.095 vs. Santana).
 
8/30/2013 1:43:00 PM
Description: The Diamondbacks have traded outfielder Jason Kubel to the Cleveland Indians.
Insight: It was just a season ago that Kubel posted 30 HR and 90 RBI for the D'backs, but his production has been non-existent this season (.220, 5 HR, 32 RBI). He'll be a part-time guy in Cleveland, so his fantasy value is limited.
 
7/30/2013 9:53:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks left fielder Jason Kubel is questionable for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with a stiff back, but if he plays he's a career .368 hitter with three homers versus Rays starter Roberto Hernandez.
Insight: Kubel hasn't performed up to expectations this season (.234, 5 HR, 27 RBI, .668 OPS), so this injury shouldn't cause much angst for fantasy owners. A.J. Pollock would likely get the start if Kubel can't go.
 
7/19/2013 10:40:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks left fielder Jason Kubel is a stunning 9-for-13 (.692) with a pair of home runs and a 1.945 OPS versus Giants starter Chad Gaudin.
Insight: Kubel finished the first half in a slump, going 1-for-16 over his last six games before the break, but this hugely favorable matchup should not be ignored.
 
7/11/2013 12:47:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks left fielder Jason Kubel owns Brewers righthander Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: Kubel carries a .462 lifetime average against Gallardo in 13 previous at bats. Fantasy owners will look for him to add to those totals Thursday night at Chase Field. Of course, that's assuming Kirk Gibson actually decides to play him. Kubel (.250, 4 HR, 25 RBI) has only started six of the team's last 12 games.
 
6/30/2013 10:37:00 AM
Description: Arizona left fielder Jason Kubel has only taken 24 at-bats against left-handers this season and has a .167 average in those situations, but he might be a good play Sunday.
Insight: Kubel has gone 5-for-12 (.417) with a double, a homer and four RBI against Braves left-hander Paul Maholm, who will be on the hill Sunday.
 
5/20/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Arizona left fielder Jason Kubel is a career .360 hitter (9-for-25) with three homers against Colorado starter Jon Garland.
Insight: Kubel returned to the lineup Sunday after missing two games with a left quad injury. He went 0-for-3 with a sac fly and is now hitting .238. Fantasy owners are looking for another big season out of him after he blasted 30 home runs last season with 90 RBI.
 
5/19/2013 4:19:00 PM
Description: Arizona left fielder Jason Kubel returned to the lineup Sunday after missing two games with a left quad injury.
Insight: Kubel went 0-for-3 with a sac fly and is now hitting .238. He's taken just 63 at-bats this season due to the lingering quad injury.
 
5/18/2013 11:13:00 AM
Description: Arizona left fielder Jason Kubel missed Friday's against the Marlins and is questionable for Saturday's game against Miami with a strained left quad.
Insight: Kubel (.250, 3 HR, 9 RBI) hasn't played since Wednesday and possibly more importantly hasn't homered since April 29. After hitting 30 homers last season and knocking in 90 runs, a lot is expected of Kubel and to date we haven't seem much to be excited about.
 
5/17/2013 6:50:00 PM
Description: D'Backs left fielder Jason Kubel won't be in action Friday against the Marlins.
Insight: It's the second game in a row he's missed because of a quad injury. Kubel (.250, 3 HR, 9 RBI) hasn't homered since April.
 
4/28/2013 12:59:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks left fielder Jason Kubel has been activated from the disabled list. He's been on the DL with an injured quad.
Insight: He was expected to begin a rehab assignment on Monday, but apparently those plans were tossed out. Gerardo Parra should move back to a reserve role upon Kubel's return.
