Adam Dunn thinks best is yet to come in 2013

Adam Dunn of the Chicago White Sox thinks his best is yet to come in 2013, despite being the AL Comeback Player of the Year in 2012.


Adam Dunn had a great 2012, and was named the American League's Comeback Player of the Year. According to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago, Dunn thinks he can improve again in 2013, and take the Chicago White Sox to new heights. Dunn said that he feels like he has a better base to work on during the offseason, and that he knows what he needs to fix.

"I didn't really have time during the season. We worked on it. When you're in the middle of a playoff race you don't want to go tinkering too much with stuff. So we kind of managed what I was doing, but there are some things I want to work on (to get where I want to be)."

Dunn had 41 home runs, 96 RBIs and 105 walks in 151 games, with a batting average of .204. The batting average isn't the highest, but it was much better than his 2011 mark at .157. Even better was the fact that he hit only 11 home runs in 2011, so the improvement there was huge.

It's unlikely that Dunn will be able to improve at the same rate at which he did, and it's going to be tough for him to improve at all, but the White Sox as a whole are an improving team, so if Dunn can build off of that, then he could be looking at something special next season.
