WASHINGTON (AP) — The Houston Astros acquired utilityman Mauricio Dubón in a trade with the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
The roster crunch was going to get someone with everyone getting healthy, and Dubón was always the likeliest casualty. The childhood pictures of him at Oracle Park makes it hurt more, though.

The 27-year-old Dubón is batting .239 with two homers and eight RBIs in 21 games this season. He has big league experience at second base, third base, shortstop and center field.
