Adam Dunn Gets Multiple Extra Base Hits Off A Left-Handed Pitcher; Pigs Remain Bound By Gravity

The Chicago White Sox signed slugger Adam Dunn last offseason to be the powerful left-handed bat Ozzie Guillen's lineup so desperately needed. Needless to say, things didn't work out the way the White Sox planned.

Dunn finished 2011 with the worst individual season for a hitter since the Dead Ball Era. His triple slash line of .159/.292/.277 presumably still haunts Kenny Williams' dreams. Dunn's output against left-handed pitching was particularly feeble.

Dunn finished the season just 6-for-94 against lefties, and only had one extra base hit. That's why it's at least somewhat notable that in a Spring Training game against the Kansas City Royals yesterday, Dunn hit two homers off of pitcher Bruce Chen, who happens to throw a baseball with his left hand.

He's back! Well, maybe not yet, but it's at least an encouraging sign for the White Sox. If nothing else, Dunn has no where to go but up this season.
