You don’t know. It’s a tough decision. This is something he’s done most of his adult life. It’s important. It’s still fun. You just never know.

Adam Dunn could play outfield vs. Dodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.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."
