I thought the NFL was a copycat league. Apparently Adam Dunn didn’t get the memo. Like Matt Holliday, Dunn underwent an emergency appendectomy early this morning. Like Holliday he’ll hope to make a speedy recovery. Dunn was hitting .286 with three runs, a home run, and five RBI. Here are some early season options that could help fill the void while he is out.

  • Gaby Sanchez, FLA: .444, two runs, two RBI
  • Ike Davis, NYM:  .333, three runs, one HR, four RBI
  • Justin Smoak, SEA:  .294, one run, one RBI
  • Lyle Overbay, PIT:  .278, one run, one HR, three RBI
  • Garrett Jones, PIT:  .250, two runs, one HR, one RBI
