The Chicago White Sox have a surplus of options when it comes to slugging first baseman and designated hitters. They have Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko, and the newly signed Jose Abreu.
As far as Dunn goes, there have been trade rumors involving the veteran slugger dating back to January. Now Nick Cafardo reports that the White Sox might get aggressive in their efforts to deal Dunn and his big contract.
The White Sox would love to move Dunn with their logjam of first base/DH types with Paul Konerko and Jose Abreu also on the roster.”
If batting average is your thing then Dunn, a career .238 hitter, is not your kind of player. But the fact is, he brings elite power rarely found which means that teams will always be intrigued by the opportunity to add him. A free agent at the end of the season, the White Sox might actually have a chance to move him to a contender this mid-season, especially an American League team.
Last year Dunn hit 34 home runs and drove in 86 runs. If he is producing on a similar clip this season there will be trade interest, but probably not any sooner than that.
