Not 1 to sulk, Dubon works challenging all calendar year to ensure he is completely ready to go for Spring Coaching. He then satisfies his objective of working towards devoid of limits.
Rapid forward to these days. He is at the moment severely ill and going through remedy at the hospital. Manager Craig Counsell has now ruled him out for an extended period of time of time.

Top quality Prospect
Dubon is at the moment the seventh-rated prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system by MLB.com. Having said that, he was not normally a substantial-profile prospect. The Boston Purple Sox drafted Dubon out of substantial college in the 26th spherical of the 2013 draft. Having said that, Brewers president David Stearns noticed some thing special in him. He obtained (or instead swindled) Dubon from the Purple Sox together with Travis Shaw, Josh Pennington, and Yeison Coca in the Tyler Thornburg trade. He was in the midst of a 23-match hitting streak in Triple-A very last calendar year when he tore his ACL.
Anticipated on Important League Roster in 2019
Dubon plays shortstop, second base, and even dabbles in the outfield a bit. The Brewers had been anticipated to call him up very last year after the Super-Two deadline handed. They needed help at shortstop and second base. There would have been sufficient possibility for Dubon very last calendar year as Orlando Arcia struggled substantially of the calendar year and Brad Miller, Eric Sogard, Tyler Saladino, and other individuals rode a carousel involving the majors, minors, and waivers. A healthier Dubon could have even prevented the notoriously bad Jonathan Schoop trade.
Dubon, if healthier, figures to get a crack at the roster at some stage this year. He can strike remaining-handed pitching as an infielder, some thing the Brewers need to have. He is also versatile adequate to participate in each shortstop and second base. When he does appear to the present, he will finally reach his lifestyle-long desire of starting to be the 1st Honduras-born MLB player. The very last tweet from his Twitter account demonstrates what it will imply to him:
