White Sox Vs. Tigers: Adam Dunn Unlikely To Play Sunday With Injury, According To Report

Adam Dunn was not listed in the Chicago White Sox lineup for their crucial game game with the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, and Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago is reporting that he may not make an appearance at all off the bench.

Dunn has been feeling discomfort in his right oblique and did not play in the team's 5-1 loss to the Tigers on Saturday. After receiving a treatment on Sunday, he is hoping to work out in the batting cage during the game to see if he could make a pinch hitting appearance.

Dunn knows that while this is a very important game for Chicago, there is more at stake if he were to risk injuring it further.

"I want to be in there today," Dunn said. "I understand why I'm not. It's fine. It sucks, obviously. But I'd rather miss today than miss (30) games."
