Dunn has sacrificed his on base skills this year in an effort to improve his batting average by being more aggressive and making more contact. Accordingly, his OBP isn't what it used to be.
It currently sits at .358, which ranks him 74th amongst qualified hitters in MLB. It also only ranks him 4th on the Reds, behind Hatty (.403), Jr. (.388), and Hamilton (.371).
