Report: Athletics DH Adam Dunn says he will probably retire after season

Sunday August 31st, 2014

Athletics designated hitter Adam Dunn said he is probably done after this season, he told CSN Chicago's Jen Lada on Sunday. 

Hours before announcing his probable retirement, the White Sox went ahead and traded the 34-year-old two-time All-Star for minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn. He said on Sunday that his four years in Chicago "were just bad," but admits that he did it to himself.

He now gets a legitimate opportunity to play in the postseason for the first time in his 14-year career, as the A's sit in second in the AL West.
