Shortened season could land Giants’ Mauricio Dubon longterm deal

Giants’ utility man Mauricio Dubon seemingly had the most to gain from this season even under normal circumstances. He impressed us all with his abilities both at the plate and with a glove in his brief stint last season and his very solid spring training made everyone excited for what was in store for 2020.

In a shortened season, Dubon would be able to showcase his ability to play all over the field. Last year he showed us he can play up the middle in the infield, and in spring training we got a taste of his abilities in center field.

If baseball is played and Dubon is able to prove himself as a solid presence at the plate as well as a versatile defensive threat, then he would really be able to prove his value as a ballplayer and may force the Giants to consider trying to sign him to a longer-term deal.

Even under normal circumstances, we were hoping Dubon could have a break out year, but in a shortened season he could take advantage of the circumstances and prove he is a valuable big leaguer.
