    The Chicago White Sox have finalized a four-year, $56 million deal with free-agent slugger Adam Dunn, according to a source familiar with the situation.



    The deal is pending a physical.

    Chicago general manager Kenny Williams pursued Dunn at the trade deadline in July without success. The team also spoke to Dunn's representatives at last week's general manager meetings, sources told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine."



    Dunn, 31, ranks second in the major leagues to Albert Pujols since 2004 with 282 home runs. He hit .260 with 38 homers and 103 RBIs for the Washington Nationals this season.



    Although Dunn has expressed an interest in staying in the National League and continuing to play first base, most scouts consider him better suited to the designated hitter role at this stage of his career.



    The designated hitter spot was a major concern for the White Sox last season. Manager Ozzie Guillen's DH contingent hit only 18 home runs and logged a .728 aggregate OPS.

    It's kind of funny what 2 years has done for Adam Dunn. In late 2008 the Reds wanted to trade him and couldn't find a taker. He passed through waivers and was eventually dealt to Arizona for very little. He would have been a Type A free agent, but Arizona didn't offer him arbitration. He ended up with 2 years and $20 million in Washington. He hasn't really improved much as a player. He's hitting for a higher average now, but is actually coming off of the lowest OBP of his career. Somehow he got double the length and an extra $4 million per year.

    sportscenter just made their announcement of the signing. Naturally they showed adam dunn highlights. The highlights were 3 homeruns. One of off Zach Duke, one off of Karstens, and one from the side in which you can only see jaramillo catchings.

    Really? Didnt have a clip of him hitting a homerun off of any other team? Terrible, but it made me laugh when i saw it.
