|White Sox DH Dunn has Appendectomy, Out 5 Games
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night and will miss at least five games.
The team said Dunn felt discomfort during Kansas City's 7-6, 12-inning victory Tuesday and was taken to a hospital after the game. He was expected to travel with the team to Chicago.
Dunn scored a run and was 0 for 4 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch against the Royals.
Dunn is hitting .286 with one home run and needs 45 homers to reach 400. The offseason acquisition signed a four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox.
