After missing the last six White Sox games due to an emergency appendectomy, Adam Dunn will return to action tonight against the Oakland A’s, batting third.
The slugger has been itching to get back in the lineup. Since becoming a regular starter in 2002, Dunn has played in at least 158 games in every season but one. He doesn’t like to miss any time, and after getting his appendix removed on Tuesday April 5th, he declared he’d be ready to play by Thursday the 7th.
Manager Ozzie Guillen thought otherwise. The skipper said the club would be “very cautious” with their new 56-Million-Dollar investment, and cautious they were.
But Dunn appears to be back to full health and ready to face Trevor Cahill and the Oakland A’s this evening.
