Latest Update Adam Dunn is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Aug, 24, 10:19 AM
A rare mix of elite power and incredible patience at the dish, he's also durable and consistently produces homers and walks. Can play a corner outfield position, as well as first base.
Flaws: : Has a long swing and strikes out at huge rates. Doesn't make consistent contact with the ball, which hurts his batting average. Makes too many errors wherever he plays defense.
With lefty Chrius Capuano on the mound for the Yankees, the White Sox will sit Dunn and go with Jose Abreu at first base with Paul Konerko at DH.Analyst: Howard Bender
With lefty Wei-Yin Chen on the hill, the Big Donkey will get the day off. Jose Abreu will slide into the DH spot with old-timer Paul Konerko back at first base.Analyst: Howard Bender
He is putting together another classic Dunn-performance this season, as he is contributing good pop (19 homers) despite a poor batting average (.228). It would certainly be a surprise to see the 34 year old retire from the game this early, but Dunn will likely announce if he is done (pun-intended) at the end of this season. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Dunn is now 7-for-15 with three extra-base hits (2 HR), five RBI and two runs scored over his last four games as he tries to bounce back form a poor start to the month of August (.206 BA). Although he is not going to win any awards for batting average (.228 BA), Dunn is just one home run shy of reaching 20 long balls and if he heats up down the stretch could be a solid asset in deep leagues as long as he has a solid surrounding cast to make up for his poor numbers outside of that one category.
