White Sox DH Dunn has appendectomy, out 5 games

BY foxsports • April 6, 2011

Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night and will miss at least five games.

The team said Dunn felt discomfort during Kansas City's 7-6, 12-inning victory Tuesday and was taken to a hospital after the game. He was expected to travel with the team to Chicago after a Wednesday afternoon game.

Dunn scored a run and was 0 for 4 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch against the Royals.

Dunn is hitting .286 with one home run and needs 45 homers to reach 400. The offseason acquisition signed a four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox.
