Mauricio Dubon: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Dubon's path to MLB was hastened this offseason when the Red Sox traded him to the Brewers in the deal that returned relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg. With Boston, Dubon was blocked in the middle infield, and even the organization's experiment with him at third base was fraught with traffic. There should be a quicker path to the majors as a shortstop, his best position, in the Milwaukee organization. Dubon is a high-contact guy who performed well at both High-A and Double-A (.840 OPS). More attention would have been paid to his productive year had Dubon not spent time with more heralded prospects, Yoan Moncada and Andrew Benintendi. He actually showed some power in Double-A, clubbing six homers in 62 games with the Sea Dogs, but there's nothing in his past to suggest the power is here to stay. His defense and speed (30-of-37 steals) are enough to get him to the majors. Whether he continues to hit is the major question entering 2017.
Dubon, 21, has been a good contact hitter since joining the Red Sox organization, and he continued along the same path in 2015. He began the season at Low-A Greenville, registering a hit in 14 of his first 16 games on his way to a .301/.354/.428 slash line in 58 games for the Drive, including 22 multi-hit games. He fell off some after a promotion to High-A Salem, experiencing the predictable challenges and a big drop off in power moving up a level. He was hitting just .231 at Salem in late July, but showed signs of adjustment, going on a .328 tear in August / September. Dubon also showed off his speed, swiping 30 bags in 37 stolen-base attempts. Defensively, Dubon has the arm to handle shortstop and should get back there full time after Boston parted with Javier Guerra in the Craig Kimbrel trade. Dubon will start at High-A Salem this season with a promotion to Double-A Portland expected later in the season.
Dubon, a native of Honduras who moved to California in 2009, was drafted in the 26th round of the 2013 draft. He's a skinny kid, but has a frame that projects some growth. Dubon's got some refining to do in the field, but has plenty of arm to play shortstop. At the plate, he shows surprising pop. Dubon stays back and generates good bat speed. He's just beginning to develop an approach.
