Dunn traded to Diamondbacks

August 11, 2008



The Arizona Diamondbacks finally got the boost they have been looking for in acquiring outfielder Adam Dunn from the Cincinnati Reds for a minor-league pitcher and two players to be named later on Monday. Dunn batted .233 this season for the Reds with 32 homers, tied for tops in the majors. Dunn will be a rental situation as he is eligible for free agency at the end of the season and should give a boost to their sputtering offense. The Diamonbacks currently have a 1 1/2 -game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West. The Diamondbacks sent right-hander Dallas Buck to the Reds.

In the last couple weeks the Reds have traded two of their best hitters in Ken Griffey Jr. and now Dunn, showing that they are ready to rebuild. The Reds are last in the NL Central and on a six-game slide.
