32-year old lefty swinging DH/1B Adam Dunn and 31-year old righty swinging RF Alex Rios rebounded big time for the White Sox in 2012, after turning in very poor years in 2011. Dunn looks like a glorified softball slugger at the plate, as it’s quite often all or nothing with him at the plate. Dunn played in 122 games for the White Sox in 2011 and he was 66 for 415 (.159 avg, .569 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 11 homers and 42 RBIs. The White Sox were worried that Dunn might be done after last year. Dunn has rebounded big time for the Pale Hose in 2012. Dunn has played in 146 games for the White Sox this year and he is 108 of 520 (.208 avg, .818 OPS) with 86 runs scored, 41 homers, 94 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Dunn also leads the majors in both walks (103) and whiffs (212) so far this year. Alex Rios also had a year to forget in 2011. He played in 145 games for the White Sox last year and he was 122 of 537 (.227 avg, .613 OPS) with 64 runs scored, 13 homers, 44 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Rios has bounced back well this year for the White Sox. He has played in 153 games for the White Sox so far this year and he is 176 of 590 (.298 avg, .837 OPS) with 90 runs scored, 24 homers, 88 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. The White Sox need both Dunn and Rios to finish strongly in the last six games of the season.
