Dubin was added to the Astros' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Dubin, who is not on the 40-man roster, is a rail-thin starting pitcher that achieved a noteworthy level of success at High-A Fayetteville in 2019. Not much was expected of the 402nd overall pick (13th round) in the 2018 draft out of tiny Georgetown College (Kentucky), but Dubin put himself on the radar last season. The right-hander posted a 3.92 ERA (2.34 FIP) while striking out 132 and walking 42 over 98.2 innings, including 18 starts, for the Woodpeckers. He likely would have started the season at Double-A Corpus Christi, so the Astros are expected stash him in the alternate camp, where the 6-foot-1, 154-pounder can continue his development.
