Adam Dunn clears waivers

Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn cleared waivers and is now eligible to be traded. It’s really no surprise here since Dunn’s contract calls for him to make another $20 million through the end of next year. On the year Dunn’s hitting .227 with 26 homers and 69 runs batted in.

Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn has cleared waivers and is eligible to be traded to any team, sources said Friday.

It’s no surprise that Dunn would go unclaimed since he has close to $20 million to go on his contract through the end of next year, but he’s hitting very well lately and potentially could help someone if Chicago finds a trade partner.

The Rangers and Orioles are two teams that might consider at least looking at DH, though the White Sox would presumably have to pay down significant dollars. Texas also has a greater need for a right-handed bat, not a lefty like Dunn. (Jon Heyman – CBS Sports)

Heyman’s article was written around 11:00 am this morning so obviously he didn’t know the Rangers already had made a trade for Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios. That trade should likely take them out of the running for Dunn.
