White Sox- Down On The Farm: Dane Dunning

Player: Dane Dunning

Position: Pitcher

Height: 6’4 Weight: 200 Age: 25 Bats/Throws: R/R Current Level: AA Birmingham

MLB.com Rank: 6th in White Sox System

Drafted: 2016 (1st Round, 29th Overall by WSH)

College: Florida

Acquired: In trade with Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez from Washington for Adam Eaton (2016)

Dunning hasn’t pitched since the middle of 2018. He missed the second-half of 2018 and the entire 2019 season with Tommy John surgery. In 2018, Dunning pitched 86.1 innings with a 2.71 ERA over 15 starts between High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham before the injury.

Scouting Grades

Scouting grades are based on a 20-80 scale where 50 is league average. Every 10 points away from there represents 1 standard deviation away. First number is current grade, second number after the slash is a potential future grade. FV means Future Value overall

The former National’s first-round pick was really starting to pitch well when he went down for the rest of 2018 and all of 2019 with elbow-surgery. On the mound, Dunning’s best weapon is his slider and he has enough of a mix to be a future major league starter. His velocity sits 90-93 mph and tops out at 94. If Dunning’s rehab goes to plan he will be a near-MLB-ready 4/5 starter for either this season or 2021.
