Dunn participates in batting practice Sunday
CHICAGO -- Although Adam Dunn missed his fifth straight game after having an appendectomy performed early Wednesday morning in Kansas City, the slugger took batting practice on Sunday morning. Dunn reported nothing really inhibiting him during the swings.

"It was good to get out of solitary confinement and hang out with the general population, you know what I mean?" Dunn said. "I feel better than I did yesterday, which is good.

"Again, the guys that are looking at me are a lot smarter than I am. I just want to be ready when I'm in the lineup, whenever that may be."

Dunn could return some time during the Oakland series, beginning Monday night.

"I wouldn't call it a learning experience," said Dunn with a smile. "I feel like I'm being punished. It's kind of like you are being punished, being grounded, and you don't know what you did. I hope it never, ever happens again."
