Above-average bat speed; short and liner swing; quick wrists; shows moderate barrel control; more slap than drive currently; does not always barrel pitches; crouched stance with inverted feet; moderate leg kick; can become off-balanced on off-speed; ability to recognize spin is present; lacks the physicality in his swing to hit the ball with force when thrown in on the hands.
Well below-average raw power; lacks physical strength and the body is not conducive to future muscle gain; swing is linear and more gap-to-gap oriented.
4.20 home to first; quicker times last season with Lowell; quick burst and has a solid second gear.
Utility glove profile; quick feet and soft hands; above-average range from both SS and 2B; struggles occasionally with the short hop right at him and will need to make better judgments on hops moving forward.
Whip-like arm action; efficient arm speed and generates carry on the ball even though he lacks the physical strength; can make the throws from the SS hole or from transfers at 2B.
Dubon's value is primarily primarily tied to his defensive capabilities, as he can play SS, 2B and 3B, with the athleticism to potentially play OF if needed. With the versatility, he fits the role of a utility player. Dubon's ability to play an above-average SS added along with moderate barrel control and above-average bat speed could push his role towards an everyday SS on a second-division squad. The risk is high since Dubon is in his first year of full-season ball.
Round Drafted: 26th round, 2013
Why: Athletic player with projection; displays barrel control and ability to stick up the middle; potential utility option.
