Dunn trying to get better in left field
Outfielder Adam Dunn is not afraid to critique himself when it comes to his defense. He will be the first to say that he needs work out there.
The fact is, he is working hard to get better. He is often practicing with outfield/first-base coach Marquis Grissom before games. Dunn said he is feeling comfortable in left field these days because he is concentrating on one position out there. During the first half, Dunn was also playing right field.
“I’m feeling comfortable out there, but [I make] a bunch of stupid errors and [I know I have to work at getting better],” he said.
Dunn doesn’t have a problem hitting the baseball. Entering Saturday’s action, Dunn is hitting .272 with a team-leading 24 home runs and 65 RBIs.
