The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a deal with Adam Dunn, pending a physical. Jon Heyman first reported they were on the verge of an agreement, then Peter Gammons was the first to have the figures. (His $56 means millions) The deal is four years and $56 million for Dunn, who will likely split time playing first base and DH.
The White Sox will still try to sign Paul Konerko, and moved quickly in signing Dunn.
Dunn hit .260/.356/.536 with 38 HR and 103 RBI for the Nationals last season, including 199 strikeouts and 77 walks.
The White Sox will still look to acquire another left handed bat if Kenny Williams sticks to his word. Earlier in the offseason he stated that the White Sox are looking to sign two lefty bats this offseason.
