Monday return for Adam Dunn?

Merkin @ CWS:

Adam Dunn termed Friday the worst day on his recovery road from an appendectomy performed early Wednesday morning in Kansas City. But when he woke up Saturday morning, his outlook changed for the better.

“I was actually laying on my side, which is how I sleep. I hadn’t been able to do that,” Dunn said. “I woke up and thought, ‘I have a little action going on here.'”

Dunn took some flips in the batting cage Saturday, and while he wasn’t feeling 100 percent, he felt OK.

“That means tomorrow is going to be great,” a smiling Dunn said.

Sunday’s game would be Dunn’s fifth out of action since the appendectomy, marking the original projection for his absence. Dunn stayed consistent and still hoped to return for the Tampa Bay series finale, but manager Ozzie Guillen thought the Oakland series starting Monday was more of a possibility.

“I’m not a doctor, but when they open your body and you say five days, I don’t care who you are, you’re not Superman,” Guillen said. “I don’t care how tough you are, that’s going to get you. In the meanwhile, that’s very good news. He wants to play. We have to be careful with that.”
