In an interview with ESPN Radio, Miami Marlins and former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen knew that Adam Dunn was in for a long season from the first day of Spring Training.
Guillen went on to say on ESPN Chicago's Waddle and Silvy Show, “I looked at his swing and I told [bench coach] Joey Cora going home, ‘My God we’ve got a big problem."
The White Sox tried everything to help Dunn find his groove again, but to no avail. “He couldn’t find his stroke, he couldn’t find it,” Guillen went on to say. “He do everything. People in Chicago, believe me, he try everything in his power to get better. We watched the videos, fastball, change up, everything was missing.”
Dunn might have had one of the worst seasons in MLB history, last season. In Dunn's 492 plate appearances, he hit .159, an on base percentage of .292, 11 home runs, and only a paltry 42 RBIs.
Dunn was signed away from the Washington Nationals when he signed a four year, $56 million deal with Chicago, last offseason.
