Latest Update Adam Dunn is not in the Athletics' starting lineup Tuesday. Tue Sep, 23, 05:03 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 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
With lefty Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox, Dunn will park it on the bench for the afternoon. Well, he'll be available to pinch-hit should the team need him. Derek Norris will be the DH on Thursday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Dunn provided the only offense for the Athletics in today's loss. Before rushing to pick up Dunn, we need to see what his role is going to be moving forward. If he is going to be the everyday DH and you are okay with accepting the low average, then go ahead and pick up the slugger.Analyst: Colby Conway
Dunn homered in his debut for Oakland on Monday, but will not be in the starting lineup because the A's are trying to get as many right handed hitters vs the lefty, James Paxton. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
