The Ashland, KY native and UK alum has been out with a shoulder injury since Opening Day, and shows no signs of returning before September at the earliest.
Meanwhile, the cash-strapped DBacks must make a choice to pick up his $8.5MM option or buy him out for $2MM. Unless he shows he's completely healthy, I have to imagine they buy him out, especially if last year's refusal to offer Dunn arbitration was any indication of their financial situation.
Assuming he is bought out, could/would/should the Reds make a run at him? Obviously it all depends on his health. What kind of deal would he command? Would he take a hometown discount? Could he be the TOR guy to headline a rotation filled with the youngsters? He just turned 30 in May.
What are your thoughts?
