Ventura mulling Dunn in left for Cubs set
CHICAGO -- With the designated hitter disappearing this weekend during three Interleague games at Wrigley Field, manager Robin Ventura indicated on Sunday that he will get Adam Dunn in left field against the Cubs and possibly for all three contests.

"It's a possibility, yeah," said Ventura of Dunn to the outfield. "I'm going to watch him catching some fly balls during [batting practice]. He has to play at some point. He'll probably play left field.

"We had him out there in Spring Training I think a couple of times. We'll find a way for him to get in there. The way he's swinging it and what he does for our lineup, you need to find a way to get him in there."

Dunn played in right field for two games for the White Sox during the 2011 season. He played left field for the Reds, Diamondbacks and even the Nationals before coming to the White Sox, while also having 25 career homers at Wrigley.
