The Major League Baseball trade deadline hit the San Antonio Missions on Wednesday afternoon.
With less than an hour remaining before the 3 p.m. (Central) deadline, it was reported that Missions shortstop and Milwaukee Brewers prospect Mauricio Dubon was part of a deal between the Brewers and San Francisco Giants.
Dubon played 98 games for the Missions this season, batting .297 and hitting 16 home runs.
The 25-year-old from Honduras made a brief appearance with the Brewers this season, becoming the first native of Honduras to play in the majors.
Dubon was originally drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2013.
In Tuesday’s deadline trade, Dubon went to the Giants in exchange for pitchers Drew Pomeranz and Ray Black. The Brewers badly needed pitching for the stretch run. Dubon is likely to have more opportunity to play in the majors with the Giants as a middle infielder than he was with the Brewers.
Jake Hager is slotted to start for the Missions tonight against the Sacramento River Cats at Wolff Stadium.
