According to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, a four-year deal for “a bit less” than $60 million over four-years is basically complete between the Chicago White Sox and Adam Dunn.
Other sources are saying the specific number is $56 million. So once again, Sox GM Kenny Williams has landed one of the biggest free agents in Major League Baseball. And eventually gotten the man he wanted. (Believe me, someday you’ll inevitably see Chone Figgins in Sox pinstripes) And with the Sox not offering a contract to closer Bobby Jenks, they still have designs on keeping Paul Konerko.

Dunn is a career .250 hitter with 354 homers in 1448 games. He has spent his entire career in the National League playing eight years in Cincinnati and one in Arizona. He signed with Washington as a free agent in 2009. The thing about Dunn is that he does strike out a ton. Last year he struck out 199 times in 558 at bats while hitting 38 homers. He also drove in 103 runs in 158 games for the Nationals.
