SF Giants who could hit 20 home runs: Mauricio Dubon
Mauricio Dubon’s name is not one you’d expect to find on this list, but hear me out. He had four home runs in just 28 games last season, and in Triple-A with both the Brewers organization and the River Cats, he hit 20 home runs in 123 games.
Now, Triple-A numbers don’t immediately translate to what MLB numbers will be, but I feel that Dubon is a player the Giants are going to try to work into the lineup any way possible because of his versatility defensively as well as his promise with the bat.
He can play the outfield and the infield, and his speed on the base paths should not be overlooked considering the team does not have that many speed threats. No one will expect him to hit 20 home runs, but then again no one expected Yaz to hit 21 homers last season.
So there you have it, five players who I think are capable of hitting 20 home runs for the Giants in a normal season.
