It’s no secret that White Sox slugger Adam Dunn has had his struggles at the plate since signing a free agent contract in 2011.
Through the first 19 games of the 2013 season, Dunn has a batting average of .100 with 3 homers and 6 RBI hitting just .027 with two strikes in the count. The DH-first baseman is hitting .030 in road games with no hits against left-handed pitchers.
In an interview published on the club’s website, a determined Dunn said, “I swear on the grave of Moose Skowron that I will get at least one hit this week.”
“It’s been a tough month for me, no doubt, but, c’mon, it’s still April,” said Dunn. “Come talk to me in July when I’m up to .190 with 10 or 12 home runs.”
Dunn said his primary goal for 2013 is “to be voted Comeback Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.”
