|Dunn Deal for White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Slugger Adam Dunn has officially joined the Chicago White Sox, giving them the big left-handed hitter they were seeking.
The White Sox announced the deal on Friday, a day after word came that he had agreed to a four-year, $56 million contract. Dunn batted .260 with 38 home runs with 103 RBIs for Washington last season.
Besides landing Dunn, the White Sox also announced that free-agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal and is staying put.
The White Sox would still like to retain free agent Paul Konerko, who turned down their arbitration offer.
