A’s acquire Adam Dunn from White Sox

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser in Anaheim The A’s haven’t scored in 22 innings, cleanup hitter Brandon Moss hasn’t homered since July 24 – and this morning, the team addressed at least the power issue by acquiring slugger Adam Dunn and cash from the White Sox for minor-league pitcher Nolan Sanburn. Dunn will join the A’s in Oakland tomorrow, I am told. With Sept. 1 roster expansion, no corresponding move must be made to add him. Dunn is among the top home-run hitters in the game, and perhaps the most notorious strikeout king. A DH and first baseman, Dunn has 20 homers...

Adam Dunn traded by White Sox for RHP Nolan Sanburn

In the end, Adam Dunn could get what he hoped for when he signed that ballyhooed four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox in 2011 — the chance to play in the postseason. But it would be with the Oakland Athletics, who acquired the left-handed slugger Sunday on the last day players are eligible for postseason rosters. And it would be the final chapter of his 14-year career. Dunn had hinted in recent days that this season would be his last, and he...

MLB Trade Rumors: Athletics interested in Adam Dunn, according to Tom Verducci

Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated reports that both the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants "are among teams interested in acquiring Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn before the Monday deadline for postseason eligibility." Adam Dunn could bring an added power bat to what can charitably be described as a struggling offense that is sitting on a 22-inning scoreless streak dealing with injuries to key contributors. The 34-year-old left-handed batter is .220/.340/.433 this year, and his his 20th home run of the season Saturday night against the Detroit Tigers. Dunn has mostly impressed...

Adam Dunn traded to Oakland

The White Sox traded Adam Dunn to Oakland for minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn and cash, marking an end to a disastrous tenure with the White Sox that began with a 4 year, $56 million contract. In 528 games with the White Sox, Dunn batted .201/.321/.410 with 106 home runs. Depending upon which WAR you prefer, he was worth -1.5 bWAR or -3.1 fWAR. His negative value and low offensive numbers can largely be attributed to one of the worst seasons a baseball player has ever had. In the first year of his contract in 2011, Dunn batted .159/.292/.277. While he made a solid turnaround in 2012 and...

Game #137: The Athletics' slump is Dunn with a 6-1 victory over the Mariners

The new misfit toys led the charge as the Athletics broke their four-game losing streak. When Adam Dunn was a free agent prior to the 2011 season, I kind of wanted the Oakland Athletics to sign him. The A's were coming off a solid season built around pitching and defense, and they needed to add power to the lineup if they wanted to build on that success. They ended up getting Josh Willingham, and Dunn signed with the White Sox. Although that 2011 team didn't go anywhere, it still looked like they'd dodged a bullet after Dunn posted .569 OPS in Chicago and threatened the MLB record for worst...
