Recent reports have Sox GM Kenny Williams interested in being a buyer at the trading deadline with the Sox’s resurgence into the AL Central race.
Joe Cowley of the Sun-Times says perhaps they could be going after the Nationals’ Adam Dunn to DH:
According to multiple sources, Williams has been acting on his list in the last week, specifically targeting the Washington Nationals’ Adam Dunn.
‘’Names have been talked about by both sides,’’ one source said. ‘’[Williams] might want to act quickly, though.’’
Dunn’s name has gained steam in the rumor mill, with the Nationals now willing to part ways with their free-agent-to-be first baseman and try to build a talented group of young arms around pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg.
But Williams is working against the Los Angeles Angels, who are starting to turn up their efforts to acquire Dunn. And most of the Sox’ highly regarded pitching prospects were dealt in previous trades to acquire Jake Peavy and Juan Pierre.
