After recovering from an ACL damage that took place days right before he could have been the 1st ever Major League player from Honduras (it was widely speculated that he was extremely shut to changing Orlando Arcia at shortstop), Dubon predicted to get a lot of at-bats this spring, and that match was supposed to be the 1st of several with the huge league club this thirty day period.
Rather, Dubon has reportedly not been sensation effectively the earlier few of games he would have played, and was held out of the lineup. Evidently, he nonetheless isn’t sensation much better — according to Craig Counsell, Dubon was checked into the healthcare facility to see what’s been ailing him.

We never know what indications Dubon has been sensation, but the “out for some time” line is about — and disappointing for Dubon, whose possibility to get frequent at-bats was possible likely to be early in spring, right before Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas and other regulars saw their participating in time enhance. His probabilities of creating the Major League roster out of Spring Coaching were being considerably reduced with the Moustakas signing, but this spring was nonetheless likely to be useful in encouraging him shake off any rust after lacking nearly a full calendar year.
For now, while, here’s to hoping the health issues isn’t everything way too critical and that he’ll be back on his feet before long. Items out of his command have now robbed him of just one possibility. It would be a disgrace to see it happen for a second time in less than a calendar year.
