Nationals first baseman is putting up another great season of offensive numbers, hitting 23 points above his career average. Dunn, who is two homers shy of his sixth consecutive forty home run season, will make 12 million dollars in 2010.

While Adam Dunn may not be the best fielder in baseball, he would have an impact in virtually any lineup. Will the Nationals shop Dunn this off season? The Indians and Giants could pursue Dunn, and so could the Braves, but only if they don't resign Adam LaRoche.
Dunn is no guarantee to be traded though. Despite the Nationals putting together their worst season in franchise history, Dunn has had a positive impact on the Nationals clubhouse. A veteran presence has also taken some of the pressure off of Ryan Zimmerman, who is having a breakout year for the Nats.
Bringing in a veteran like Randy Wolf could have a positive impact on the rotation, similar to what Dunn has done for the middle of the lineup.
