Too much too soon?
It is important to remember that Dubon is entering just his second year at the big league level. He is only 25 years and still trying to figure things out at the MLB level.
Throwing him out into center field could give him too much to worry about when he is already focused on improving as a hitter.
That said, when you’re playing for an organization where Farhan Zaidi is calling the shots, you have to expect that you’re going to be asked to move around the diamond quite a bit.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s unlikely that exploring a new position would render Dubon useless as a hitter. However, it is possible that one extra thing on his mind could have a minor impact on his offensive game.
Regardless of who winds up winning the starting center field job for the Giants, this will be a compelling storyline to follow this spring.
