White Sox Spring Training 2012: Adam Dunn Most Likely Will Hit 3rd, According To Robin Ventura

While Robin Ventura hasn't been willing to name a closer just yet, he said Monday that Adam Dunn would most likely start out the year hitting in the No. 3 spot.

Monday, Ventura did reveal to reporters that he did like Adam Dunn hitting in the third spot, although he did say that could change Friday.

"He gets on base a lot," Ventura said. "Even though he might strike out a little bit, he does walk a lot. To me, that's a good thing in front of Paul (Konerko)."
