News: Dunn went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer Monday against the Mariners. Impact: Dunn made quite a first impressive with his new team Monday. Batting average is always a problem for Dunn, but he is still a big power hitter even at this stage of his career. Being traded to a team with a chance to win a championship might lead to a rejuvenated Dunn and a big final month of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Dunn said he plans to retire after the 2014 season, Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports. Impact: In waiving his no-trade clause to join the Athletics on Sunday, Dunn will attempt to conclude his career with a World Series ring, which has eluded him in his 14 seasons in the big leagues. While Dunn could have a change of heart with regards to retirement based on how his season ultimately ends, those who own the slugger in keeper leagues may want to prepare to cut ties with him for 2015.(RotoWire, )

News: The Oakland Athletics have acquired Dunn from the Chicago White Sox, hoping to boost their lineup for the final stretch. Impact: Second in the AL West, the Athletics were looking to add a hitter after trading Yoenis Cespedes to the Boston Red Sox for starter Jon Lester before the July 31 nonwaiver deadline. Dunn has 460 career homers, but has struggled in four seasons with the White Sox.(STATS, 1:06pm)

News: Dunn was traded to the Athletics on Sunday in exchange for minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn. Impact: In acquiring Dunn on the final day of the waiver trade deadline, the slugger will be eligible for the Athletics' postseason roster. The 34-year-old Dunn has once again delivered his customary numbers - low batting average, high-power - but it's his on-base skills that might prove most beneficial to the Athletics. He'll make his team debut Monday against the Mariners, and he'll likely be a mainstay in the lineup at DH against right-handed pitching for the season's final month.(RotoWire, )

News: Dunn isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.com reports. Impact: Dunn will sit out the nightcap as Jose Abreu serves as the designated hitter and Paul Konerko mans first against lefty Kyle Ryan. The 34-year-old Dunn hit a two-run homer in Game 1, his 20th of the year, and is now just three shy of tying Jose Canseco on the all-time home run leader board.(RotoWire, )

News: Dunn is not in the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Impact: The Yankees will bring lefty Chris Capuano to the mound Sunday, with manager Robin Ventura countering with a right-handed-heavy lineup.

News: Dunn's four-year, $40 million contract is up at the end of this season and the slugger hinted Monday there is a possibility he could retire. Impact: Dunn, who turns 35 in November, has 459 homers and could move way up the all-time list by sticking around a few more years since he's just three away from tying Jose Canseco for 34th place. But he said numbers, even the possibility of hitting 500 homers, won't be a determining factor.(STATS, 1:07am)
