Adam Dunn had an emergency appendectomy

Apr 6, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT


UPDATE: Brett Ballantini of CSN Chicago reports that the procedure was a laproscopic appendectomy — which is far less-invasive than the slice-and-dice you got as a kid — and that the team estimates that Dunn will only be out up to five days.

9:55AM: Tough break for the White Sox as it’s being reported that Adam Dunn had an emergency appendectomy this morning. He apprently fell-ill last night after the Royals-Sox game.

As the Cardinals are learning with Matt Holliday, the time for recovery may not be extensive, but look for the Donkey to be out of the lineup for at least a couple of weeks.

    I wonder what Old Hoss Radbourn has to say about this?

    Is appendectomy the new oblique?

      Getting an appendectomy to baseball is like getting a nose job to a rock star or getting lypo to an ugly, overpaid, semi-star actress. It’s just the new black.

        I think we have clearly established the oblique injury as the New Black. I think the appendectomy is more of a “when to wear white”; after the season starts.

    First Obliques and now Appendectomies? What’s next, Captain Tripps?

    The White Sox are FAR better prepared to lose Dunn for a while than the Cardinals were to lose Holliday to the same malady. Mark Teahen and Lastings Milledge will platoon at DH until the Big Donkey gets back. Better to have this happen now though than in late August or early September.

    This will be the most games missed by Dunn in a single season since he became a starter years ago. Dude has always played 159 or more games. I hope Ozzie doesn’t tell him to get his head out of his incission if he misses to many games.

    Oh yeah, by the way, Ozzie Guillen is a (you fill in the blank). I can’t believe any free agent like Dunn would even consider playing for this dude. Of course, 10 mil a year might persuade ya.

      Ozzie is highly respected as being a “players manager” and being honest as a church mouse with his players and has the utmost respect of his locker room. What the fans think is irrelevant.

      Why do you think that Paul Konerko and AJ Pierczinski both left money on the table in free agency this offseason to resign with the White Sox knowing that Ozzie is signed through the 2012 season as their manager? Why do you think that Bobby Jenks was so publicly upset when the White Sox decided at the end of last season to non-tender him a contract because his off field problems had become such a pain in the butt?

      I have yet to hear or read ANYTHING from ANY player who has played for Ozzie since he took over as the White Sox manager 7 years ago that’s negative. How many other big league managers can make the same claim?
