Mentally tired probably. That has nothing to do with how strong you are physically. A season like this has to wear on a player, especially one in Dunn's shoes who has struggled to live up to expectations, was the only guy on the team hitting during the heart of the season, is nearing the end of his prime years and still hasn't won a title. I imagine he's staring the end of his playing days right in the face and doesn't like how it's ending. That can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety.
