Washington Nationals: Pitching to Adam Dunn

Last month, I wrote a post on Federal Baseball indicating that MLB pitchers were afraid to pitch to Adam Dunn. At the time, pitchers had thrown 44.49% of all pitches in the strike zone, while only throwing strikes to Dunn 35.05% of the time. As a result, 30% of Dunn's plate appearances resulted in walks.

Over the Nats last 20 games, Dunn has walked less and hit more – 10 walks in 70 plate appearances. This 14.29% walk rate is still substantially higher than the major league rate of 8.16% during the same time frame, but is also closer to Dunn’s 16.8% career walk rate. Check out my new post on NatsStats for the May update on the approach MLB pitchers are taking with Adam Dunn.
