Dunn misses fifth straight game

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Adam Dunn missed his fifth straight game because of a right oblique strain on Tuesday, and while the White Sox slugger is feeling better and is getting closer to returning to the lineup, he and manager Robin Ventura won't rush the comeback this time.

"I want to wait until I have no problems as opposed to coming back a day or two early and having this thing do this again and missing significant time," said Dunn, who said he was "stupid" when he pushed the issue coming back the first time.

"I knew that it wasn't just a nice easy little strain, what I was feeling,'' he said.

Dunn took an injection and is getting treatment from trainer Herm Schneider.

"What we're trying to do is get it to where I can swing, that's the problem,'' he said. "It's not getting out of bed now, it's not sneezing. I'm not going to pick up a bat today and hopefully tomorrow they'll let me do some stuff."

On Monday, Ventura said Dunn was closer than day-to-day. "Hour to hour,'' he said.
On Tuesday, Ventura said Dunn was "half hour to half hour.''
