San Francisco Giants infielder Mauricio Dubon could be a fit on the bench for the Colorado Rockies
San Francisco Giants infielder Mauricio Dubon could be a fit with the Colorado Rockies.
Dubon, 27, has spent parts of three seasons in the majors with Milwaukee (two games in 2019) and the Giants (after the trade deadline in 2019).
In 2021, Dubon played in 74 MLB games and he hit .240/.278/.377 with five homers, 22 RBI, and an OPS+ of 76. 2020 was his best season as he hit .274/.337/.389 with four homers and 19 RBI in 54 games. He had an OPS+ of 100.
In 2019 between the Brewers and Giants, he played in 30 games and he hit .274/.306/.434 with four homers and nine RBI.
Dubon could be a target for the Rockies because they have been big fans of versatility with their players. In the majors alone, Dubon has played at least a dozen games at second base, shortstop, third base, and center field. He also played a handful of games in left and right field in the minors.
The Rockies have some players that could play infield and outfield spots currently or in recent years (Garrett Hampson, Chris Owings, Taylor Motter, Ryan Vilade, Ian Desmond, Pat Valaika, Gerardo Parra) but Dubon has seen the most success at the MLB level with the bat (Vilade only has three games at the MLB level and Owings has had the best bat but he has been injured for the vast majority of the last two years).
Dubon doesn’t even have two years of service time so the Rokcies would have their fair share of control with him.
