Brewers Acquire Dunn!

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent IJune 25, 2009

The Brewers have agreed to terms with A. Dunn.

Unfortunately, no, my dream of watching Adam Dunn play in a Brewers uniform is not unfolding…

The Brewers inked Andrew Dunn, a 6-foot-5 right-handed pitcher who played for John A. Logan College and, most recently, Southern Illinois University. He’ll join Helena in the coming weeks after an arm-strengthening program and a few games in the Arizona League.

Here’s some info on the other Dunn’s college playing career:

This past spring, Dunn went 8-4 with a 3.15 ERA in 18 appearances with the Salukis, nine of them starts. He struck out 29 and walked just 10 with five hit batsmen in 71 1-3 innings. In 2008, Dunn started 10 games and went 2-6 with a 5.40 ERA, striking out 18 and walking nine in 46 2-3 innings.

As a freshman at Logan, Dunn won six games and struck out 52 batters, leading to his being drafted in the 29th round of the major league draft by the Atlanta Braves. But he chose to return to Logan, where he went 9-1 with a 1.57 ERA.
