Dunn likely to miss more than five games
Slugger Adam Dunn will probably miss more than the five games the Chicago White Sox initially expected as he recovers from an emergency appendectomy.
Dunn was out of the lineup for the third straight game Friday against Tampa Bay.
Manager Ozzie Guillen says he'd rather lose a game than risk further injury by sending Dunn out to hit before he's fully healed.
He also says Dunn is improving.
Dunn is hitting .286 in four games for the White Sox this season. He has one home run and five RBIs. Chicago signed the slugger to a four-year, $56 million contract in December.
