Latest Update Adam Dunn and Brandon Moss are in the new Athletics starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Sep, 27, 07:23 PM
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.
The were both originally out of the lineup, but with left handed Holland scratched due to a migraine, they were added back into the lineup to face righty Scott Baker. Analyst: Ben Diamond
After getting one hit in five at bats from the second spot in the order on Friday night, Dunn gets the day off on Saturday. His last day off was September 9, so he is due for a breather.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
After no hits in his last seven at-bats, the A's are hoping to jump-start Dunn a little bit here. He'll bat in front of Josh Donaldson for Friday's game in Texas and will hopefully be able to produce more than just a strikeout as the A's cling to their current spot in the wild card.Analyst: Howard Bender
The A's are facing Wade LeBlanc, who's absolutely garbage, but is a left handed pitcher and the A's would rather get a right handed bat vs him, then have Dunn in the lineup. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
