Update: Dunn and New Approach at the Plate


Just thought I'd check on Dunn and see how if he is sticking with his more aggressive approach at the plate.

Dunn is staying aggressive. In fact, he's even more aggressive. He's swinging more often, at more first pitches, and making a bit more contact. His production is much better, but unfortunately his strikeout rate has gotten worse.

It'll be interesting to see how his production plays out over the season if he stays aggressive.
