CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the Marlins could trade reliever Mike Dunn.

Dunn has a 3.38 ERA as a left-handed setup man with the Marlins and is currently part of a closer-by-committee with Steve Cishek. In addition to Dunn, Heyman says that Astros reliever Wesley Wright and Cubs left-hander James Russell are also on the trade block.

Michael Dunn nailed down his second career save in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Marlins manager Mike Redmond decided to pull closer Steve Cishek and go to Dunn with two on and lefty Miguel Montero coming up. Dunn walked Montero but then got A.J. Pollock to ground out after running the count full. With Cishek's struggles against left-handers this year, its possible Dunn could see the occasional save opportunity.

Michael Dunn nailed down his first save of the season in Monday's win over the Nationals.

He made manager Ozzie Guillen sweat first, allowing a hit and a walk before getting Andy LaRoche looking to cinch the two-run win. It's confirmation that the Marlins will go with a closer-by-committee, as Steve Cishek netted the first save since Heath Bell's demotion, and Randy Choate and Edward Mujica could get into the mix, as well. Bell pitched the eighth inning Monday.

Marlins recalled LHP Mike Dunn from Triple-A New Orleans.

Dunn has posted a hideous 9.58 ERA in 10 1/3 innings of major-league relief this season. The Marlins will hope for better this time around but seem doubtful to use the southpaw in many high-leverage situations early on.

Marlins optioned LHP Mike Dunn to Triple-A New Orleans.

Dunn got the boot after being tagged for four runs on three hits and two walks over one inning of work Thursday against the Giants. The 27-year-old southpaw now owns an ugly 9.58 ERA in 10 1/3 innings this season.

Marlins recalled LHP Mike Dunn from Triple-A New Orleans.

Dunn was exiled to NOLA in late-April after posting a 9.53 ERA with the Fish. When he's on, however, he is arguably Miami's most talented reliever. With the struggles of Heath Bell, the club could use a live arm in the late innings. Over the previous two seasons with the Braves and Marlins, Dunn posted an ERA+ of 128 in 97 relief appearances.

Marlins optioned LHP Mike Dunn to Triple-A New Orleans.

Dunn surrendered three earned runs in 2/3 of an inning Sunday against Arizona to bloat his ERA to 9.53. Over the past two seasons with the Braves and Fish, Dunn posted an ERA+ of 128 in 97 relief appearances. He should be back soon.

Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said Michael Dunn will be his primary eighth inning man after Clay Hensley landed on the disabled list.

Many thought it might be Ryan Webb or Brian Sanches, but Dunn is a fine choice. He has been terrific this season, posting a 1.35 ERA and 1.05 WHIP while striking out 19 over 13 1/3 innings. Dunn says he ultimately wants to be the closer. "What I want to do eventually is to be a closer," Dunn said. "So you take your chances wherever you can get them in the bullpen and try to work your way to the role you want."

Michael Dunn gave up three runs in one-third of an inning Saturday against the Red Sox.

Dunn was just as big of a part of the Dan Uggla trade as Omar Infante was, the but the hard-throwing left-hander is pitching himself out of the Marlins' plans for April. Not only has he given up five runs in 3 1/3 innings, but he's yet to strike out a batter.
Sat, Mar 12, 2011 04:44:00 PM

Marlins acquired LHP Mike Dunn and INF Omar Infante from the Braves for 2B Dan Uggla.

Dunn, 25, posted a 1.52 ERA and averaged 12.2 K/9 in 38 appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett this past season, but he also averaged 4.8 BB/9. His control was even less impressive after joining the Braves. Despite a 1.89 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 19 innings, he also walked 17. There's obviously potential here, but he shouldn't be a major piece of a trade for a player like Dan Uggla.

Braves recalled LHP Mike Dunn from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Dunn had luck on his side during his last trip through the majors and wound up posting 8 1/3 scoreless innings despite an ugly 8/11 K/BB ratio. He will be used in low-pressure situations down the stretch.

Braves optioned LHP Mike Dunn to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Dunn tossed 8 1/3 scoreless innings during his month-long stay with the team, however he also posted an 8/11 K/BB ratio. Look for the young left-hander to return when rosters expand in September.

Braves recalled LHP Mike Dunn from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Dunn, 25, will replace southpaw Eric O'Flaherty on the 25-man roster. The hard-throwing left-hander has a microscopic 1.05 ERA and seven saves in 33 relief appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, compiling a 56/22 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings. Acquired from the Yankees in the Javier Vazquez trade, Dunn has a real future in the big leagues.

Braves optioned LHP Mike Dunn to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Hard not to feel a little sorry for Dunn, whose stay in the majors lasted all of one day. The Braves felt they needed a pitcher more suited to long relief, so Dunn had to go. The promising 24-year-old left-hander had a 2.25 ERA in 20 innings last season with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate. He was acquired in the Javier Vazquez trade and has a future in the bigs as a left specialist.
