Dunn good in clean-up spot: Ventura

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Any positive sign that Adam Dunn's bat is coming around is a good sign for the White Sox.
``He's swinging better and I like him in that [clean up] spot,'' manager Robin Ventura repeated Friday. ``If he walks or is having good at-bats and gets on base with Paulie [Konerko] and [Conor] Gillaspie coming up behind him, he can be dangerous, or he'll give [Alex] Rios good pitches to see, so it's a good spot for him.''
Dunn still was batting around .100, with only three hits in his last 50 at bats.
But Dunn's demeanor always has been positive during his slumps.
``As far as what we get inside the clubhouse as a teammate, he's about as good as it gets,'' Ventura said. ``He's upbeat and just wants to win. That part is never in question.
``But we're playing baseball, and it's about what goes on out here [on the field] and what we're doing, so you make decisions based on that, too.''
