Adam Dunn went 3-for-5 and hit his 450th career homer Friday in a loss to the Angels.

It was Dunn's 10th homer of the year. Of course, three-hit games are much less common than homers for Dunn; it was just his second one of those this season, with the other coming April 19 against the Rangers. In fact, he had a total of three hits in his previous eight games combined.
Jun 7 - 1:40 AM

Adam Dunn launched a walk-off two-run homer in a 6-5 victory over the Yankees on Friday night.

After Dayan Viciedo led off the bottom of the ninth with a single, Dunn turned on an 0-2 fastball from David Robertson and sent it over the right field fence for the game-winner. It was a no-doubter, as the ball traveled an estimated 435 feet. The veteran slugger has three home runs and nine RBI over the past week.
May 24 - 12:40 AM

Adam Dunn fanned all four times he was up Sunday versus the Astros.

Dunn is hitting just .200 with one homer and three RBI in 40 at-bats this month after an excellent April. The White Sox would love to see him pull out of it with Jose Abreu out, but today wasn't a very good sign.
May 18 - 6:26 PM

Adam Dunn went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, and a three-run home run in Friday's 7-2 win over the Astros.

Dunn hit a tape measure blast in the sixth inning to give his team a 3-2 lead. It's career home run number 446 for the veteran, leaving him three shy of tying Jeff Bagwell and Vladimir Guerrero for 36th all-time. As for the season, the home run is Dunn's sixth. While Dunn has slowed down a bit lately, he's still slashing .252/.391/.477.
May 17 - 12:19 AM

Adam Dunn went 1-for-4 with a walk in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Dunn hadn't started since suffering a calf injury in Monday's game, but it was never a major concern. The slugger has had a fine start to the season, batting .268/.405/.485 with five homers and 12 RBI.
May 9 - 4:31 AM

Adam Dunn (calf) expects to be back in the lineup Wednesday.

Dunn sat out Tuesday's game after being kicked in the calf on Monday. He was unable to get the calf loose during batting practice Tuesday, but it sounds like the injury is no big deal.
May 7 - 12:12 AM

Adam Dunn was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a bruised right calf.

Dunn got kicked in the calf during Monday's game and is still a bit sore. He should be fine in a day or two.
May 6 - 7:51 PM

Adam Dunn will start in left field Monday against the Cubs.

It's obviously not ideal from a defensive perspective, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura wants to keep his bat in the lineup with the DH unavailable under National League rules. The 34-year-old slugger is batting .279/.409/.500 with five home runs and 12 RBI through 25 games this season.
May 5 - 4:22 PM

Adam Dunn went 1-for-2 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Dunn also walked twice in the game. The RBI double capped a three-run third inning against Tigers starter Justin Verlander, the only three runs the Sox would bring home on the evening. Dunn has been a gem for fantasy owners in the first month, especially in leagues that count on-base percentage, as the Big Donkey has batted .280/.409/.533 through 21 games.
Apr 30 - 12:33 AM

Adam Dunn went 1-for-4 with a walk and a home run as the White Sox lost to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Dunn's ninth-inning, two-run blast off of Phil Coke was part of the Tigers' late rally, but it ultimately wasn't enough. Dunn now has 444 career home runs and may be the next to join the 500-HR club, though it won't be until late 2015 at the earliest. Dunn, 34, has an .878 OPS in 17 games.
Apr 22 - 11:49 PM

Adam Dunn blasted the 443rd home run of his career on Tuesday, the only hit he had in his only official at-bat as the White Sox beat the Red Sox.

Dunn took Jake Peavy deep for a solo shot in the second inning, staking the White Sox to an early 1-0 lead. He broke a tie with Dave Kingman on the career home run leaderboard, moving into 38th place by himself. Dunn also drew three walks, as is typical of the 34-year-old veteran. He has quietly been off to a very productive start to the season.
Apr 15 - 11:47 PM

Adam Dunn went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

The 34-year-old slugger is off to a strong start for the White Sox, slashing .241/.410/.483 with two homers and seven RBI. His massive power and ability to get on base still provide considerable value in several fantasy formats.
Apr 12 - 5:41 PM

Adam Dunn is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's afternoon tilt against the Royals.

It's a routine day of rest for the veteran slugger against opposing southpaw Bruce Chen. Paul Konerko will make his first start of the season as the White Sox DH and will hit sixth in the White Sox lineup.
Apr 5 - 11:06 AM

Adam Dunn went 1-for-2 with a solo home run against the Cubs on Thursday.

Dunn belted his first spring homer in the ninth inning off of Wesley Wright. The slugger has had a forgettable spring and, at 34 years old, his numbers appear to be trending south. He can still be penciled in for close to 30 homers, but not much else.
