Adam Dunn is entering the fourth and final season of his $56 million contract with the Chicago White Sox. There had been some speculation that the 34-year-old could retire at the end of the season but Dunn told WhiteSox.com that he is planning on returning beyond 2014.
“Yeah, as of right now, today, yeah. I plan on coming [back],” said Dunn. “Again I could go out and stretch and say, ‘I’m done, I’m not having any fun.’ But I don’t see that happening today.”
Dunn is planning to wait until late November to make a definite decision. His prospects for a contract will lay a large role on whether he returns. Dunn finished the 2013 season hitting .219/.320/.442 with 34 home run and 86 RBI.
“Whatever is going to help win, I’m in,” Dunn said. “If I’m not swinging it good and everyone else is, I’ll sit and watch and do that. But I don’t plan on that happening.”
