  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Starting at first base Saturday

    Dubon is starting at first base and batting ninth for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

    With southpaw JP Sears taking the mound for Oakland on Saturday, the righty-hitting Dubon will make just his fourth career start at first base while Jon Singleton begins the game on the bench. Over 39 games this season, Dubon is slashing .311/.330/.443 with two home runs and 20 RBI across 112 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Blasts second homer

    Dubon went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and two additional runs scored in Monday's 9-7 loss to the Angels.

    Dubon's hits continue to come in bunches. He's logged three or more hits in three of his last 10 games, but he has just one other hit in that span. The homer was his second of the year and briefly put the Astros ahead 6-1 in the fourth inning before the Angels' comeback rally in the fifth. Dubon is slashing .301/.321/.427 with 19 RBI, 13 runs scored, one stolen base and seven doubles across 37 contests this season. His splits are not too far apart this season, but the Astros are soon to be at full health among their hitters, so there's unlikely to be consistent playing time for the right-handed Dubon against same-handed pitching.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Sitting after four-hit game

    Dubon is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics.

    After rapping out a season-high four hits in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Tigers, Dubon will retreat to the bench as the Astros open a four-game set with the Athletics. Dubon had started in four of the past five games, but he's still seemingly viewed as a utility player for Houston and hasn't yet seized hold of an everyday spot in the lineup.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: On bench for second straight game

    Dubon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Dubon is on the bench for a second straight game and seems to have moved into a part-time role after he had drawn starts in the outfield in each of the first three games of May. The Astros have a regular opening in left field with Chas McCormick (hamstring) moving to the injured list, but rookie Joey Loperfido looks to have an edge on the gig, leaving Dubon to vie with Jake Meyers and Trey Cabbage for playing time at the other outfield spot while Kyle Tucker is locked in as the everyday right fielder.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Sits Saturday

    Dubon isn't in the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Dubon went 0-for-3 with a sac fly during Friday's series opener, and he'll now get a day off for Saturday's contest. His absence will move Joey Loperfido into center field while Jon Singleton starts at first base.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Remains productive

    Dubon went 3-for-4 with an RBI on Friday against the Nationals.

    Dubon started in center field and hit ninth, which marked his ninth start in the last 11 games. In that span, he's gone 13-for-36 with a home run, nine RBI and a stolen base. Dubon has primarily cut into Jake Meyers' playing time, and that could continue so long as he remains hot at the plate.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Pops first homer of 2024

    Dubon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to Atlanta.

    Getting the start in center field and batting seventh, Dubon took Jesse Chavez deep in the sixth inning to give the Astros a 4-2 lead that the bullpen couldn't protect. The 29-year-old utility player has hit safely in four straight games and six of the last seven as he pushes Jake Meyers for playing time in center. On the season Dubon is batting .279 (12-for-43) with one homer, one steal, four runs and 10 RBI.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Playing time ticking up

    Dubon went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Thursday against the Royals.

    Dubon was in the lineup for the third time in the last four games, two of which have come in center field in the place of Jake Meyers. The former has picked up a total of 13 plate appearances in that span, collecting four hits and a double with two runs scored and an RBI. Meyers is likely to return to a more regular role, but Dubon is a capable replacement if he continues to be called upon.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Scores run in win

    Dubon went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's 10-5 win over the Rangers.

    The 29-year-old is capable of playing every defensive position except catcher, and it is that ability that has gotten him into games this season for the Astros. Dubon has started only two games through Houston's first nine contests, but he has entered multiple times as a defensive replacement all over the field. If any Astro were to go down with an injury and miss significant time, Dubon is more than likely to be the man to replace him.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Key bench option

    Dubon is a lock to make the Astros' Opening Day roster thanks to his defensive versatility, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Dubon logged a career-high 492 plate appearances in 2023 and posted a passable .720 OPS with 10 homers and seven stolen bases. He'll enter the 2024 season as a bench bat, but he would likely step into a more significant role should any of the Astros' regular starters be forced to miss time thanks to his ability to play any defensive position except catcher.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Wins arbitration hearing

    Dubon will make $3.5 million in 2024 after winning his arbitration hearing with the Astros on Monday, Ari Alexander of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Houston had offered $3 million. Dubon earned the substantial salary bump after slashing .278/.309/.411 with 10 home runs and seven stolen bases over 132 games for the Astros in 2023. He played seven different positions last year and is in line for a super-utility role again in 2024.

    This is the highest lineup spot yet for Dubon, who hit seventh Wednesday in Game 3 and went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored as the Astros earned an 8-5 victory.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: In lineup for Game 1

    Dubon is starting in center field and batting seventh in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Rangers on Sunday.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Back to bench in Game 4

    Dubon is out of the lineup Wednesday for Game 4 of the ALDS versus the Twins.

    Dubon started in center field Tuesday in Game 3 and went 2-for-5 with two singles, but the Astros will turn back to Chas McCormick to cover the position Wednesday as they take on right-hander Joe Ryan. McCormick has gone 2-for-7 with a homer in his career meetings against Ryan. Dubon, meanwhile, has never once faced Ryan.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Starts in center field in Game 3

    Dubon will start in center field and bat seventh in Game 3 of the ALDS on Tuesday at Minnesota.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Blasts 10th homer

    Dubon went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Mariners.

    Dubon put the Astros ahead in the fourth inning when he took Bryce Miller deep, and that blast was enough for the win. Dubon had gone 15 games without a homer, but he hit .333 (14-for-42) in that span while filling a part-time role. He's at a solid .279/.309/.413 slash line with 10 long balls, 46 RBI, 76 runs scored and seven stolen bases through 129 contests this year.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Homers twice in win

    Dubon went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Monday's victory over the Rangers.

    Dubon tied the game 4-4 in the sixth inning with his first home run off Glenn Otto before extending Houston's lead to 12-5 with an opposite-field blast off Martin Perez in the ninth. It's the first multi-homer game of the year for Dubon, who now has a career-high nine long balls this season. While he's retreated to a bench role of late, Dubon's still slashing a solid .274/.304/.404 with 67 runs scored, 39 RBI and seven stolen bases across 438 plate appearances this season.
