C. Trent Rosecrans has the latest on Adam Dunn. He reminds us that Dunn’s no-trade clause switches from all teams to 10 teams on Sunday. GM Walt Jocketty is aware of Dunn’s veto teams, even if the public is not. Ken Rosenthal has suggested that Dunn strategically chose the high-revenue teams (Dunn makes $13-16MM this year).
Despite the upcoming change in Dunn’s no-trade clause, Rosecrans quotes Walt Jocketty as saying "there have been no discussions." Negative on extension talks too, even when Wayne Krivsky was GM.
Dunn, 28, is hitting .240/.406/.531 in 251 plate appearances (in line with his career numbers). It’s been suggested by both Rosecrans and Rosenthal that Dunn would make sense in Boston if David Ortiz has complications. For Jocketty to trade his slugger, he’d need a bounty superior to two ’09 draft picks.
