Dunn Done in Cincinnati

Earlier this afternoon, the Arizona Diamondbacks acquired left fielder Adam Dunn from the Cincinnati Reds. Dunn has 32 homers, which is tied with Ryan Howard for the most in the league. Dunn is batting .233 with 74 RBIs.

Arizona is 29th in Major League Baseball in batting. Dunn will not bring a good batting average (.247 for career), but he will definitely bring home runs. Dunn does strike out quite a bit. He is fifth in the National League in strikeouts.

This is the D-backs answer to Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers. Though Dunn is not as good as Ramirez, he will improve the D-backs. The D-backs have good starters in Brandon Webb and Dan Haren. This NL West Race will be very close.
