Tigers have interest in Adam Dunn

With the injury to outfielder Magglio Ordonez, the Tigers have “great interest” in Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn, according to a baseball source.

The Tigers need a run producer after Ordonez fractured his right ankle in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays, knocking him out for an estimated six to eight weeks.

If the Tigers were to acquire him, Dunn would be a designated hitter and play in the outfield. They already have a first baseman in Miguel Cabrera.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo have said in the past that he would want a lot in return if he were to trade Dunn. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski also indicated to local beat reporters that he would not trade top prospects for short-term players. 

Dunn, who was hitting .279 with 23 home runs and 62 RBIs entering Sunday’s action, is a free agent after the season.

Young pitchers seem to be the theme of the season. Some good. Some not so good.
Josh Wilkie is having an outstanding season at Syracuse after great seasons in each of the prior years at the lower levels. He has overachieved at every level. His current ERA is around 1.70. Induces ground balls regularly and in critical situations. Low number of walks. Lately he has been saving games when the opportunity has been presented to him. Yet he seems to be overlooked when the Nats bring up a new pitcher. When will they finally see the light with Josh? As far as I can see he is a keeper. Ask the guys who have played with him like Strasberg. They know. Why doesn’t the Nats front office know by now?

Sign Dunny to a 3 or 4 year contract and watch him start really wacking the ball. Stop jerking him around.
