CHICAGO -- A move to the National League for the next three games against the Nationals means the White Sox will lose the designated hitter. And with right-handed starters Jordan Zimmerman and Dan Haren pitching Wednesday and Thursday, it's likely Adam Dunn will get at least one start in left field.

"We'll just see how it goes," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "He'll probably have one of them at some point. He says he feels it's his home park.

"I don't know what that means," added Ventura with a laugh.

Dunn played for the Nationals in 2009-10 and played 84 games in the outfield during the 2009 season.

"I know it's obviously a big park, but it'll be fine," Dunn said. "It'll actually be kind of fun if I do it."
