Dunn feeling better, but out of lineup

Dunn feeling better, but out of lineup

DETROIT -- After a couple of days of intense treatment from White Sox head athletic trainer Herm Schneider, Adam Dunn reported his strained right oblique was feeling better than it did Friday.

Dunn intended to take some test swings during Sunday night's contest against the Tigers, although nothing could be projected as far as his return.

"I want to be in there today. I understand why I'm not. It's fine," Dunn said. "I'd rather miss today than miss [30] games. Hopefully we won't need me today, but hopefully I could maybe come in later in the game and do something, if not tomorrow.

"To sit there and watch a big game like that and can't do anything, it [stinks]. I love playing and if it was anything -- I've never had anything like this to where you can't swing. If I could even remotely, I would do it. That's the thing, other little nicks and knacks, you can cover them up but it's kind of hard to fake this one."
