SF Giants trade Mauricio Dubon to Astros before roster crunch

The Giants were finally going to make a full recovery, which meant a tough move to take.

The tough move came early on Saturday morning, with Giants trading utility player Mauricio Dubon giving the Houston Astros a replacement for catcher and first baseman Michael Papiersky. The Giants also recalled recently acquired infielder Donovan Walton to replace Dubon on the active roster and will start Walton at second base in St.

Dubon was in a fight for roster spots with Thyro Estrada – both out of minor league options – throughout the spring. But injuries to Ivan Longoria, Tommy La Stella and Lamonte Wade Jr opened up opportunities for Dubon to make the opening day roster.

In 49 plate appearances, Dubon batted at .239 with two home runs and eight RBIs. He had his moments in the first month of the season, like going 3-for-4 against the Rockies on Monday with a homer and three RBIs.

But Dubon’s Ops are down 20 points from 2021 and have some mistakes on their bases as well. And with both Longoria and Wade returning — and La Stella not far behind them — the Giants finally had to make a decision for their roster crunch.
