Diamondbacks Acquire Dunn

The Reds have traded Adam Dunn to the Diamondbacks in exchange for Dallas Buck, and two players to be named later. Dunn is hitting .233 with 32 HR and 74 RBI in 144 games this, leading the league in homeruns. The power is definitely there for Dunn, but he really does not hit for average. He is a free agent following this year as well and they will need to pay him at least fifteen million to keep his services. If the Diamondbacks wanted a big name outfielder, I would have recommended Raul Ibanez, mostly because he brings power and average to the plate. Dunn will take over in right field and give the Diamondbacks a solid number four hitter.
