Dunn to sit out Monday's action
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Adam Dunn will not play Monday when the White Sox host Oakland, giving the left-handed slugger just his third inactive game in nine played by the White Sox.

Manager Robin Ventura wanted to get Dunn going early with extra at-bats and three starts at first base. The plan has seemed to work, with Dunn seeing the ball well at the plate.

"He's been swinging it great, and we've been able to get him at first base and DH, moving him around," said Ventura. "That's just one way to get him at-bats and get him active.

"Get him on the field and get him running around. Even in Spring Training, DH is boring. So get him out there and get him comfortable. If we have to get Paulie [Konerko] a day off during the season, we can do that."
