Mike Dunn: Ending career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn announced Tuesday that he has elected to retire from professional baseball, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Citing a desire to spend more time with his family, the 34-year-old Dunn will step away from baseball after spending parts of 11 seasons in the majors with the Yankees, Braves, Marlins and Rockies. Dunn enjoyed his best years as a lefty specialist for Miami from 2011 through 2016, with his success in that role earning him a three-year, $18 million deal from the Rockies prior to the 2017 season. Dunn's numbers fell off in a major way during his time in Colorado, and MLB's decision to implement a three-batter minimum in 2020 likely resulted in him drawing limited interest when he became a free agent this winter. Rather than accepting a minor-league deal and pursuing a long-shot bid at an Opening Day roster spot, Dunn will end his playing days with a 4.00 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 9.7 K/9 across 555 career appearances in the majors.

Mike Dunn: Released by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn was released by the Rockies on Sunday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Dunn battled shoulder issues and struggled to a 7.13 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 17.2 innings with the Rockies before being designated for assignment and ultimately cut loose.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn was designated for assignment Tuesday.

Dunn owns a poor 7.13 ERA in 17.2 innings on the season, inflated by the four runs he allowed in just one-third of an inning in his most recent appearance Friday against the Padres. Infielder Pat Valaika was called up to take his place on the roster.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

He missed almost two weeks with left AC joint inflammation. Phillip Diehl was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Thomas Harding of reports.

It's unclear when Dunn suffered the injury, which is being described as shoulder inflammation, or how long it will keep him sidelined at this point. Prior to landing on the shelf, Dunn compiled a lackluster 5.19 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 17.1 innings of relief (27 appearances). Thursday's starter, Peter Lambert, was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) is listed among the Rockies' available relievers for Monday's Cactus League game against the Rangers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The Rockies eased Dunn into spring action after he required surgery on his left shoulder in September. The southpaw was cleared to make his Cactus League debut Friday versus the Athletics and aced his first test, striking out one as part of a 1-2-3 inning. If used again Monday, he'll likely be in store for another one-inning appearance.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Expected back for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Friday that he expects Dunn (shoulder) to be ready to go for Opening Day, Thomas Harding of reports. "We will monitor him closely early in spring training," Black said. "He's currently throwing off the mound and feeling good."

Dunn was shut down in July with inflammation in the AC joint of his left shoulder and ultimately required season-ending surgery in September. While it doesn't sound like any reconstructive work was necessary for Dunn's shoulder, the Rockies will most likely limit his usage in Cactus League play to avoid a setback heading into the regular season. The southpaw reliever hasn't lived up to expectations since inking a three-year, $19 million deal in December 2016, accruing a 5.61 ERA and 69:46 K:BB across 67.1 innings in 93 appearances.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Dunn was hoping to return from the 60-day DL during the Rockies' upcoming series against the Giants, but a setback suffered during the southpaw's rehab assignment effectively ended his season. He's set to undergo surgery on his AC joint in the coming weeks. The veteran reliever was limited to just 17 innings this season due to multiple injuries, struggling to a 9.00 ERA.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Set for testing due to soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) is dealing with soreness and will be evaluated at Coors Field on Monday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports.

The testing will determine the next step for the southpaw, who holds an ugly 9.00 ERA in 25 major-league appearances this season. Dunn has endured three stints on the disabled list and will need to respond positively to checkups in the next week in order to convince the club he's worth a roster spot down the stretch.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Aiming for September return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday and expects to return from the 10-day disabled list during the Rockies' series with the Giants that begins Sept. 3, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

The southpaw is in the midst of his third DL stint of the season, this time due to inflammation in the AC joint of his shoulder. Dunn seems to be on the cusp of a return, however, as he tossed a simulated game Friday and reported no pain during the sessions. He'll now prepare for the rehab assignment, with four appearances likely on tap for Dunn during his time on the farm. Once reinstated from the DL, Dunn will presumably be ticketed for a middle-relief role after turning in a 9.00 ERA and 2.35 WHIP over his 17 outings with the Rockies prior to being shut down.

July 27, 2018 07:20 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Shifts to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Dunn was placed on the disabled list July 7 with an injury to the AC joint in his left shoulder. He later received a platelet-rich injection in the injured shoulder, although there remains no timetable for his return.

July 12, 2018 04:48 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: To receive PRP injection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn will be treated with a platelet-rich plasma injection in his left shoulder Thursday, Thomas Harding of reports.

Dunn will be shut down from all throwing activities for the next 10-to-14 days. The left-hander has been dealing with shoulder problems since June 7, when he suffered a shoulder strain against the Reds. Recently, he was diagnosed with AC joint inflammation, which could cost him a lengthy period of time if this injection doesn't make an immediate difference.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Dealing with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn was placed on the disabled list Saturday with an AC joint issue in his left shoulder, Thomas Harding of reports.

It's the second time this season that Dunn hit the DL with a shoulder issue. He'll have an MRI to determine the extent of the problem. Jerry Vasto was called up to replace him Saturday.

July 7, 2018 10:28 AM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Returns to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn will be placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Saturday's game due to an undisclosed injury, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Dunn recently spent around three weeks on the DL with a shoulder injury, so there's a decent chance that he re-injured the shoulder, though an official announcement from the club should shed some light on the matter within the next few hours. In his place, Jerry Vasto was recalled from the minors.

June 27, 2018 05:08 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports.

Dunn will rejoin the Rockies after missing just under three weeks with his shoulder injury. He has really struggled this season, allowing 16 earned runs over 16 innings (9.00 ERA), so it's not out of the question the time away benefits him in the long run.

June 22, 2018 03:52 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Cleared for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Thomas Harding of reports.

Dunn has been on the disabled list since June 8 with a shoulder strain. He recently stated he felt healthy enough to return after throwing a bullpen session, so he could be back with the big club after just a couple appearances with Albuquerque.

June 20, 2018 05:56 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (shoulder) tossed a 20-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Dunn stated that he feels healthy enough to return at any time, so it's possible that the left-hander will be back in action in the very near future if the club determines that he's good to go. He's been out since June 7 after suffering a rhomboid strain during an outing in Cincinnati.

June 8, 2018 05:16 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Heads to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies placed Dunn on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a shoulder strain, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Dunn had seemed to find a groove after a rough start to the season with nine straight scoreless appearances (seven innings), but has now allowed six runs over his last three outings, recording only one out. Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports the injury as a rhomboid strain, but the severity of the issue remains unclear.

Rockies' Mike Dunn: Notches eighth straight scoreless appearance Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn gave up a hit and walked a batter in a scoreless inning Tuesday against the Giants.

It's been a tale of two months for the veteran southpaw, as Tuesday marked his eighth straight scoreless appearance out of the Rockies' bullpen. After allowing nine runs in 7.2 innings during the first month of the season, Dunn has given up just one run in nine appearances in May. His 11:13 K:BB still leaves much to be desired, but it appears that he's rounding back into his previous dominant self again.

April 12, 2018 01:36 PM
Rockies' Mike Dunn: Navigates five straight scoreless outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn has allowed two runs in 4.1 innings pitched so far this season.

The 32-year-old southpaw was rocked in his appearance on Opening Day, but he's logged five scoreless outings since then. However, Dunn currently holds a 1:3 K:BB on the year, which hurts his value even in leagues that value holds. He holds a 9.9 K/9 in his career, however, so this poor K:BB can likely just be chalked up to a slow start.
