Dunn tossed a pair of scoreless innings in Saturday's blowout loss to the Braves, allowing one hit with one strikeout. After struggling in his previous two outings, Dunn fired a pair of scoreless frames as he continues to work his way back into form. The veteran got a late start to the season due to a forearm issue, and has compiled a 4.35 ERA and a troublesome 1.55 WHIP over 10.1 innings pitched in 13 games. The team will continue to give him a long leash given his solid track record and the fact that Dunn is currently the only left-hander in the Marlins' bullpen.
Dunn allowed one run on two hits with two strikeouts over one inning Friday in a loss to the Mets. It was his first official inning of the season after he failed to get a single out in his first appearance since returning from the disabled list. It wasn't his finest effort, giving up a home run to punchless lefty James Loney, but Dunn did manage to pick up a pair of strikeouts in the inning. Despite the shaky start to his season, Dunn will continue to serve a critical role in the Marlins' bullpen as the only lefty reliever on the roster.
Dunn (forearm) was officially reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. After tossing a simulated game last weekend and subsequently heading out on a rehab assignment at High-A Jupiter, Dunn will return to the Marlins' bullpen and is expected to be available Tuesday night. The left-hander is yet to pitch for the Marlins this season, but he's coming off of a 2015 campaign in which he posted a 4.50 ERA across 54 innings.
Dunn (forearm) threw a scoreless inning for High-A Jupiter on Friday and could return to the Marlins roster during their upcoming series with the Pirates beginning on Monday, MLB.com reports. Dunn opened the season on the disabled list after feeling discomfort in his pitching arm during Spring Training, but he appears to be on the verge of rejoining the club. The Marlins have lacked an effective left-handed presence in the bullpen for the majority of the season so his return will be a huge boost to the relief corps.
Dunn (forearm) tossed 27 pitches in a simulated game Saturday and is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday, MLB.com reports. The lefty reliever felt good following the session and is now targeting an early-June return. Following his rehab appearance with High-A Jupiter on Tuesday, Dunn is expected to make back-to-back appearances on Thursday and Friday before pitching in an extended spring game on May 30. The Marlins are anxiously awaiting the return of their top left-handed reliever as the team has spend much of the past few weeks without a single left-hander in the bullpen.
