Going up against Mike Trout and the Angels Justin Dunn gave up one run through 1 2/3 innings Wednesday. Dunn surrendered one hit and three punch-outs.
The loss doesn't tell the whole story as the Mariners failed to score a run in the game. Similar to his last outing, Dunn looked sharp. It will be interesting to see what he can do when given more innings to work with later in the spring.
Justin Dunn got the start against the Angels on Wednesday striking out three, allowing one hit, one earned run, and one walk over 1 2/3 innings.
Dunn led the double A Texas league in strikeouts last year and threw seven innings for the Mariners and 140 overall. Dunn still has work to do to reach his mid-rotation starter upside and if he does not improve his control could find himself in the bullpen. The Mariners have no reason to not give the 24 year old a chance in the rotation this year, but Dunn can be left off your draft board for now.
Justin Dunn issued one walk and struck out three batters over two shutout innings in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Athletics.
Dunn was used as the opener in all four of his MLB appearances this season and tossed two scoreless innings in three of those. He walked eight batters over his first 2 2/3 MLB innings but issued just one free pass over his last four frames. Dunn finished 2019 with a 2.70 ERA.
Justin Dunn allowed five walks and two runs through 2/3 of an inning in Thursday’s 11-5 loss to the Reds. He did not factor into the decision.
Dunn struggled mightily to find the strike zone in his first big league appearance. He threw just 14-of-37 pitches for strikes and walking five of the seven batters he faced. Dunn compiled an 8.8 percent walk rate in 392 1/3 innings in the minors. Dunn will most likely serve an opener Wednesday against the Pirates, but will need to demonstrate much better control to be considered for a rotation spot next season.
