Ozzie Guillen talked previously about being patient with Dunn, but the manager has since moved him from the No. 3 spot in the batting order and is now sitting him altogether against certain pitchers, which certainly isn’t what the White Sox signed up for when they gave him a four-year, $56 million deal as a free agent this winter.
With an OPS above .850 in seven straight seasons Dunn is too good to remain in this season-long slump for long, but his struggles against lefties may not go away even when he gets back on track overall. Dunn’s career numbers versus southpaws are good, but even before going 0-for-38 off them this year he hit just .199 off them in 2010 and hasn’t had an OPS above .800 against lefties since 2006.
