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.
