The Washington Nationals have placed first baseman Adam Dunn on waivers today in a final attempt to move the slugger. Dunn, who is hitting .276 with 26 home runs and a .366 on-base percentage, is on pace for his seventh consecutive season with at least 38 home runs or more. He will also be a free agent following this season.
The Giants are one possibility to put a claim on Dunn, but it would probably be in the outfielder considering Aubrey Huff is having a great year.
This is really just a formality as I expect the Nationals to hold on to Dunn and then sign him to a long-term extension after the season.
