|Adam Dunn playing through back issue|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn is not fully healed from the back spasms that flared up Saturday, CSN Chicago reports. But Dunn will continue to play through the issue.
Dunn, who said his problem is more related to fielding, was the DH Wednesday against Boston.
"It takes so long to get loose," Dunn said. "I have to probably go two or three batters before I normally do just to go and get loose again. Other than that, it’s pretty much the same."
Chicago is off Thursday before opening a three-game series against Miami Friday.
"Laying down, that hurts it worse and sitting down makes it stiff," Dunn said. "So, I’m sure I’ll be walking around doing some stuff. Again, I never had any back problems. I don’t consider this a back problem really. But I don’t know. I guess it just has to run its course."
Dunn hit his 11th home run of the year Monday. With two on, Dunn sent a first-inning fastball from Jon Lester to right field. Dunn finished 1 for 3 with a walk. Dunn is hitting .172/.268/.428 in 145 at-bats.

|Adam Dunn returns from back spasms|

(5/19/13) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn is back in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

|Adam Dunn is day-to-day with back injury|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn, who was removed from Saturday's game with back spasms, is day-to-day.
"It's just more treating it and making sure everything is all right," White Sox manager Robin Ventura told MLB.com. "As of right now, it's day-to-day. Just watching him on the field, he had done something. I don't know exactly when he did it. We were watching him at first and he couldn't move around very well. When he came in, he just wasn't moving around too good. It just tightened up on him."
Dunn is questionable for Sunday's game against the Angels.
|It's almost like 2011 never happened for Adam Dunn. Riding a streak of seven straight seasons with 38 or more home runs, Dunn signed with the White Sox before the 2011 season and completely bottomed out, hitting 11 home runs with a .159 average in 415 at-bats. And then 2012 arrived, and Dunn, with the help of hitting coach Don Cooper, began mashing the ball again. His 41 home runs were the most since 2004, when he hit 46. He led MLB in both walks and strikeouts. His average flirted with the Mendoza Line, finally finishing at .204. and the 6-foot-6, 285-pound designated hitter/first baseman even stole two bases. Dunn would be lucky, at this point, to see his average get anywhere close to his .240 lifetime mark, but you aren't drafting Dunn for that aspect of his game. He's pure power. And now that he's fixed whatever ailed him in 2011, he seems primed to maybe even improve on those numbers in 2013, with some momentum hopefully carrying over to this spring. He makes for a decent selection toward the end of the middle rounds in most drafts. (Updated 12/4/12)|
