Adam Dunn Agrees To Four Year Deal

Adam Dunn Agrees To Four Year Deal - Adam Dunn, the biggest slugger on the free-agent market, has agreed in principal to a four-year deal for $56 million with the White Sox, according to two officials involved in the contract talks who were not athorized to speak about it publicly because the deal is not yet official.

The deal is expected to be announced Friday after Dunn completes a physical. He spent the past two seasons with the Washington Nationals and has hit at least 38 home runs in seven consecutive seasons. Dunn also has been one of the game's most durable players. He has missed only 26 games since 2003.

The deal for Dunn, according to the two officials, does not preclude bringing back free-agent first baseman Paul Konerko. He hit 39 homers with 111 RBI last season for the White Sox If they are able to re-sign Konerko, the two will share the first base and DH duties.

"Not only is there room for (both), it would be the ideal fit from our persepctive," White Sox general manager Ken Williams said this afternoon. He said Konerko and his agent want to flush out all potential offers at next week's winter meetings.

Williams stop just short of officially confirming the Dunn signing, saying he'd discuss the reports at a 3 p.m. ET press conference at U.S. Cellular Field tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
