Justin Dunn, out with shoulder injury, doing his best to remain positive and patient

It was just throwing catch before a game, miles from pitching on a big-league mound, but it was an important step for Justin Dunn last week. Dunn hasn’t pitched in a game since June 17, 2021, and after a few setbacks with his right shoulder, he’s happy to celebrate milestones. Last week was his first time throwing since he was traded to the Reds in March.  ...

Cincinnati Reds trade for Justin Dunn looks even worse now

The decision to attach Jesse Winker to Eugenio Suarez to facilitate a trade was already unpopular with Cincinnati Reds fans. The return for that duo – Justin Dunn, Jake Fraley, Brandon Williamson, and a player to be named later – was underwhelming. Dunn, at least, is a well regarded pitching prospect, giving the Reds something to point to as a sign of hope.

Mariners: They Don’t Need a Fifth Starter, They Have Justin Dunn

Throughout the offseason, plenty has been made about the Mariners needing to find another starting pitcher. The conversation continued even after the Robbie Ray signing, as many wondered who would take the 5th and final spot in the rotation. Personally, I think the Mariners can save their money and use it on hitters because they already have the solution currently on the team. His name is Justin Dunn.

What the Seattle Mariners Plan Should Be with Justin Dunn

One of the first young players to make his debut in the big leagues for the Seattle Mariners at the start of their rebuild was Justin Dunn. He debuted in 2019, and started all 10 games available for him in the Mariners’ six-man rotation in 2020. Last year, he was one of Seattle’s six starters at the beginning of the season; the 2021 season was a season of some marginal improvements for Justin Dunn, but overall one without much success. The Mariners have some choices of what to do with him going forward.

Mariners Moose Tracks, 10/11/21: Christian Vazquez, Justin Dunn, and OL Reign

With a walk-off two-run home run in the 13th inning by catcher Christian Vazquez, the Boston Red Sox have taken a 2-1 lead in the ALDS. The Tampa Bay Rays were on pace to take the lead in the top of the 13th after a drive from Kevin Kiermaier to deep center, but the ball bounced off the wall and then hit Hunter Renfroe before ending up in the bullpen. Since the hit was ruled a ground-rule double, Yandy Diaz was held at third and no runs were scored.

Mariners' Justin Dunn: Shut down for season

Dunn (shoulder) was sent back to Seattle for an MRI on Friday and will not pitch again this season, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

Mariners' Justin Dunn: Throws simulated game

Dunn (shoulder) threw a simulated game Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Dunn is expected to begin a rehab assignment soon, and Friday's throwing session marked the first time he faced live hitters since he was placed on the injured list in mid-June. The right-hander shouldn't need much time to build up his pitch count since the Mariners plan to use him as a reliever once he's cleared to return.

Mariners' Justin Dunn: Could be nearing bullpen

The Mariners are hopeful that Dunn (shoulder) will be able to throw a bullpen session in the coming days, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. Dunn has been on the injured list since June 18 due to a right shoulder strain but suffered a setback in his recovery in early August.
