Does Magic bounce work behind a substitute?

I am just wondering because I have a Baton pass Espeon set with magic bounce and it knows subsitiute, if in a competitive battle, I move first and use substitute and the opponent decides to use stealth rock, will my magic bounce still activate? Thanks!

Yes Magic Bounce will still activate

Espeon used Substitute!
Espeon put in a substitute!
Espeon lost 25% of its health!
The foe's Ferrothorn used Stealth Rock!
The foe's Ferrothorn's Stealth Rock was bounced back by Magic Bounce!
Pointed stones float in the air around the foe's team!
