Report: Adam Dunn clears waivers
White Sox slugger Adam Dunn, who will make roughly $20 million through the 2014 season, has cleared waivers, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Heyman writes that the hefty price tag attached to Dunn likely deterred any team from making a claim on the designated hitter, who has 26 home runs this season, tying him for sixth in the league.
The massive Texan, now eligible to be traded anywhere, is hitting .227 with a .332 on-base percentage this season, but has compiled a .289/.401/.532 line since June 1.
Heyman identifies the Rangers -- now without Nelson Cruz, as he's in the nascent stages of a 50-game suspension -- and the Orioles as potential suitors, but notes that Chicago will need to eat "significant dollars" in order to move the 33-year-old.
Only Albert Pujols has collected more home runs than Dunn's 360 since 2004.
