Re: Dunn traded to DBacks
1:47pm: Rosenthal has changed his report. It now says a deal was consummated just before the window expired. Dunn is a Diamondback.
1:45pm: MLB.com's Steve Gilbert says the D'Backs are "close to working out a deal" for Dunn for a minor league pitcher and two players to be named later.
1:41pm: Ken Rosenthal does not agree with Gambadoro's report. Rosenthal says the D'Backs won a waiver claim on Dunn but could not complete a deal before the window expired today.
1:27pm: John Gambadoro of Arizona radio station KTAR 620 reports that the Diamondbacks have acquired outfielder Adam Dunn for three prospects, including pitcher Dallas Buck. Right field is a poor match for Dunn, but this is still an excellent move by Josh Byrnes. Dunn didn't really make sense for the eight NL teams with a better waiver position than Arizona.
Dunn isn't the ideal fit for Arizona, given the strikeouts and defense. But a .900 OPS more than balances out his flaws.
Pay attention to the open sky
