[Adam] Dunn was not only benched as the Kansas City Royals went with a left-handed starter for the second consecutive night, manager Ozzie Guillen is now saying that Dunn is dealing with a sore knee. Guillen did not know what knee was ailing his struggling slugger.
The news would seem to indicate the White Sox might try to angle for a disabled list stint with Dunn, which could open the door to recall Dayan Viciedo from Triple-A Charlotte. Guillen, though, told reporters in Kansas City on Wednesday that he intends on using Dunn in Friday’s series opener at Cleveland. The club has a day of Thursday.
UPDATE #1: Daryl Van Schouwen says no:
Dunn has been in the trainer’s room the last couple of days because of a sore knee, but it’s not believed to be something that would keep him from playing.
UPDATE #2: Dunn says his quote was misinterpreted. And he’s having too much fun to quit.
