Dunning had an interesting seven-start run in 2020. He started out relying heavily on his outstanding slider and his fastball, which led to a strong swinging strike rate and plenty of punchouts in his first few starts. He then abandoned that approach to focus more on his changeup, which led to him missing fewer bats and being less successful. Now with the Rangers, Dunning should get a chance to compete for a rotation spot right out of the gate. He has the tools and skills necessary to be successful, and the draft capital necessary to acquire him should be minimal. He's worth a late-round pick in nearly all formats.

Dane Dunning dealt with COVID-19 in December

Dane Dunning revealed that he had a COVID-19 diagnosis back in December, according to Rangers beat writer Evan Grant.

Fantasy Impact

Dunning's symptoms were a "lost sense of smell and taste, fever, etc" according to Grant, who also mentioned that the recently acquired pitcher "has had no lingering effects." It's great news that Dunning is feeling healthy now and is ready to roll for spring training. He came over from the White Sox in the offseason as part of the Lance Lynn deal and should open the season in the Rangers' rotation.
