Adam Dunn slugs 13th home run Monday vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-0 win over the Red Sox Monday.

Dunn gave his team the lead with his second-inning blast, which was just his second home run since rattling off three straight games with home runs in early June. He has hit .229/.366/.441 with 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 245 at-bats.


Adam Dunn slams homer to aid in victory over Giants


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn provided a key blow in a Wednesday win over the suddenly struggling Giants.

Dunn cranked a three-run homer in the fifth inning to give his team a 7-2 lead. The Sox needed every one of those runs as they held on for a 7-6 win. Dunn raised his slugging percentage to .465 with the blast.


Adam Dunn clubs number 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn hit his 10th home run Friday against the Angels.

After striking out in his first two at-bats, Dunn collected hits in his final three. He singled in the fifth and eighth innings before stepping to the plate with a man on in the ninth. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Dunn took a 94 mph fastball out to right for the two-run shot. He finished 3 for 5, with one run and three RBI.


Adam Dunn could play outfield vs. Dodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said he "wouldn't be surprised" if designated hitter Adam Dunn starts in the outfield against the Dodgers on Tuesday or Wednesday. Dunn has played two games in left this season, and 12 in the outfield as a member of the White Sox, reports MLB.com.

With Jose Abreu back in the lineup and no DH used at National League parks, Dunn playing the outfield is a real possibility.

"Today he's going to go out there and run around and see how it looks," Ventura said. "It's a bigger outfield than Wrigley. He's capable, but when you haven't been out there in a while, you want him to feel comfortable. We're a better lineup with him in there."


Hitters to sit in Week 10


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/31/2014) Some hitters to sit in Fantasy Week 10 (June 2-8) include A.J. Pierzynski, Adam Dunn, Yangervis Solarte, Andrelton Simmons, Marcell Ozuna and, yes, even Dee Gordon (at least at second base in certain formats).

Find out why in my latest Start and Sit Hitters column.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dunn took New York closer David Robertson deep for a two-run home run in the ninth inning. He finished 1 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI. It's his 10th walkoff home run since 2001. He is hitting .248 with eight homers and 21 RBI in 133 at-bats.

Adam Dunn records seventh home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-6 win over the Royals Tuesday.

Dunn's eighth-inning home run would increase his team's lead to 7-2, and they would need every one of those insurance runs to hang on to the lead by the time the final pitch was thrown. Dunn has hit .250/.394/.476 with seven home runs and 18 RBI in 124 at-bats.


Adam Dunn hits sixth home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said DH Adam Dunn could play left field during the team's two-game series at Chicago Cubs, per MLB.com. The absence of Adam Eaton (hamstring), who is on the disabled list, has created an opportunity for Dunn to get some time in the outfield.

Adam Dunn proving he's not done with strong start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2014) Adam Dunn has again earned every-day at-bats for the White Sox with numbers exceeding those he has compiled in recent years.

The 34-year-old Dunn owns a .269 batting average and .402 on-base percentage, both of which are higher than what he has achieved in any full season. He is also well ahead of an impressive career walk rate with 17 in 89 plate appearances. Dunn has five home runs and 12 RBI in 72 at-bats.

The result has been virtually full-time starter status. Dunn has three hits in 17 at-bats against left-handers.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn certainly couldn't be blamed for the Thursday loss to Detroit. He got his team off on the right foot with a solo home run in the second inning and added a double and run in the eighth.

The ninth-inning home run cut the Tigers' lead in half, but the White Sox weren't able to complete the comeback. With Albert Pujols reaching 500 home runs Tuesday, Dunn is the closest active player to reaching 500 with 443 career home runs. He has hit .250/.395/.483 with 60 at-bats.


Adam Dunn stays hot in defeat of Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Adam Dunn not expected to play Friday or Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn is not expected to play Friday or Sunday, according to MLB.com.

Dunn is not listed in the lineup Friday, and will miss Sunday's game to attend the Oscars. Dunn had a cameo in Dallas Buyers Club, which was nominated for best picture. Dunn is also an investor in the company that made the movie. Dunn may not see playing time early on, but at least he's not dealing with an injury.

Dunn hit .219/.320/.442 in 525 at-bats last season. 


Adam Dunn plans to return in 2015


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn plans to return for the 2015 season, MLB.com reports.

"Yeah, as of right now, today, yeah. I plan on coming [back]," Dunn said Monday. "Again I could go out and stretch and say, 'I'm done, I'm not having any fun.' But I don't see that happening today."

The White Sox plan to get Dunn some work in left field this spring with the hope of using him in the outfield during the regular season. The team has a logjam at first base with Paul Konerko and Jose Abreu also looking for playing time.


Adam Dunn accepting of smaller role in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2014) The White Sox logjam at first base and designated hitter could result in less playing time for slugger Adam Dunn. The return of Paul Konerko and signing of Cuban standout Jose Abreu will likely cut into the at-bats for the two veterans, but Dunn is not about to complain.

"Whatever to win, I don't care," Dunn told CSNChicago.com. "The good news is there's no egos, especially with me and Paul. We talked about when he was making his decision."

Dunn, who is entering the last season of a four-year contract, was his typical all-or-nothing self in 2013. He batted .219 with 189 strikeouts, but slugged 34 home runs with 86 RBI.


Adam Dunn hints at retirement


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn suggested that he could retire after the season Tuesday, FOX Sports reports. The 33-year-old is within striking distance of 500 career homers.

"I’m not coming back just to come back for money or because I have one year left (on his contract)," Dunn said. "I’m not coming back to chase home-run numbers or whatever. If I end up with 499 and I’m not having fun, see ya — 499 it is."

Adam Dunn learning to hit against the shift


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has figured out how to beat the shift, according to the CSN Chicago.

At the urging of hitter coach Joe McEwing, Adam Dunn has overcome his "stupid, stubborn ways" at the plate, and learned to combat the shift. Dunn said he realized that he has to take what the defense gives him, even if it means fewer home runs. He's been more successful hitting the ball to left, causing teams to abandon the shift.

Dunn is hitting .239/.343/.476 in 414 at-bats.


Adam Dunn playing well of late


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said Tuesday that designated hitter Adam Dunn has not lived up to the expectations that came with him when he signed with Chicago three years ago, CSN Chicago reports. 

Williams did go on to praise Dunn's recent play, however. He said there have been positive signs lately. 

Dunn, batting .231 on the year with 27 homers and 70 runs driven in, has gone 14 for 35 (.400) over his last 11 games with two homers and four RBI. He has just six strikeouts over that stretch.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2013) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has cleared waivers, according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.
