Player Notes
Adam Dunn smacked an RBI pinch-hit single against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Advice: Acquired from the White Sox in exchange for pitching prospect Nolan Sanburn on the last day of August, Dunn is now 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in two games for the A's. Not bad -- and much needed. Prior to grabbing the aging slugger, the A's had hit .223 in 29 games since swapping Yoenis Cespedes to Boston on Deadline Day for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Dunn has knocked in at least one run in six straight games. He can still drive the ball, and is slashing .226/.345/.444.

Adam Dunn homered and drove in two in his first game with the A's on Monday.

Advice: Dunn finished the contest 2-for-3. He got things going in style, hitting a two-run homer off of Mariners' starter Chris Young in the first inning. The home run was Dunn's 21st of the year, though obviously he hit 20 of those with the White Sox. For Dunn, the trade to the A's puts him on a winning ball club, and for the A's, there's hope he can revitalize their struggling offense in the dogfight that is the AL West. Dunn batted clean-up in this one. For the year, he's slashing .224/.344/.443.

When asked Sunday by Jen Lada of CSNChicago.com if he planned to play next season, Adam Dunn said "this is probably it."

Advice: Dunn has often hinted at the possibility of retirement when his current contract expires after this season. He'll turn just 35 in November and can always change his mind, but it appears, at least at the moment, that he'll hang it up after the 2014 campaign. Dunn was traded to the A's Sunday, giving him an opportunity to play in the playoffs for the first time in his 14-year career.

Athletics acquired DH Adam Dunn and cash considerations from the White Sox in exchange for RHP Nolan Sanburn.

Advice: Chicago is expected to cover $1.3 million of the $2.5 million remaining on Dunn's contract. The A's were on Dunn's limited no-trade list, but he waived the clause for the opportunity to play for a contender. Dunn, who has indicated that he might retire after the season, has never played in a playoff game. The hulking slugger has batted .220/.340/.433 with 20 homers and 54 RBI for the White Sox this season and the A's are hopeful that he'll spark a suddenly dormant offense. He play regularly in the DH spot versus righties and is expected to join the team on Monday.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Athletics are "closing in" on a trade for Adam Dunn.

Advice: The report comes less than an hour after FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal said that the A's were the front-runners to acquire Dunn. Dunn has to waive his no-trade clause in order for a deal to Oakland to go through, but he's expected to do so. The slugger has about $2.5 million remaining on his contract for the rest of this season. Dunn will be a free agent this winter and has hinted at retirement.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics are the front-runners to acquire Adam Dunn.

Advice: He'll have to waive his no-trade clause in order to accept the deal, which Rosenthal has said the slugger is willing to do. Oakland makes sense as a landing spot for Dunn, as they can use him in the DH spot, their offense has been scuffling of late and general manager Billy Beane has long been infatuated with the 34-year-old. Dunn has batted .220/.340/.433 with 20 homers and 54 RBI for the White Sox this season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that, in addition to the Giants and Athletics, there is a third, unnamed team in pursuit of Adam Dunn.

Advice: The third team is likely the Dodgers, as ESPN's Buster Olney says the White Sox are talking only to the A's and Dodgers about a Dunn deal. Tom Verducci of SI.com previously reported that the Dodgers had been in on Dunn but it was determined that there was no fit. Rosenthal says that Oakland is on Dunn's no-trade list but he would be willing to waive the clause in order for a chance to win. It sounds like the slugger will be shipped somewhere on Sunday.

Tom Verducci of SI.com reports that the Giants and Athletics are among the teams interested in acquiring Adam Dunn.

Advice: Dunn has a limited no-trade clause and it's unclear which teams are on the list. However, he might be willing to go anywhere for a couple months if it means finally getting a shot at postseason play for the first time in his career. Dunn has indicated that he might retire after the season, so it could be his last chance to experience the playoffs. A deal would need to be completed Sunday in order for Dunn to be eligible for a postseason roster. The slugger is batting .220/.340/.433 with 20 homers and 54 RBI for the White Sox this season.

Adam Dunn blasted his 20th home run of the season, powering the White Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Tigers in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Advice: Dunn's two-run shot off opposing starter Max Scherzer capped a four-run third inning where the White Sox turned a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 advantage and never looked back. The veteran slugger is now hitting .220/.340/.433 with 20 long balls and 54 RBI on the 2014 campaign.
