Dubón was drafted by the Red Sox in the 26th round of the 2013 MLB Draft. Soon after signing, Dubón was promoted to the Lowell Spinners after batting.245 in 20 games for the GCL Red Sox.
On December 6, 2016, the Red Sox dealt Tyler Thornburg to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for Dubón, Travis Shaw, and Josh Pennington. He played in 2017 for both the Colorado Springs Sky Sox and the Biloxi Shuckers.
Dubón was exchanged for Michael Papierski by the Houston Astros on May 14, 2022, after his initial stay at the San Francisco Giants.
