Rosenthal: A's are front-runners to acquire Adam Dunn
The Oakland A's are among the teams interested in adding some offense to their lineup before Sunday's 11:59 p.m. ET waiver trade deadline.
And FOX Sports 1 Insider Ken Rosenthal reports the A's are the front-runners to acquire one of the premier power bats available: Chicago White Sox DH/1B Adam Dunn.

Rosenthal notes the A's aren't the only team in the Dunn sweepstakes:
In 106 games this season, Dunn is hitting .220/.340/.433 with 20 homers and 54 RBI. During his 14-season major-league career, he has 460 homers.
