Why??? If you can get a good player in return that makes sense. But to eat some money(say $8Mil) and get a low level prospect is a waste. Hopefully Dunn is not blocking a young player's progress. Next year his bat in the lineup should help the development of the young players, Abreu and/or Garcia see better pitches. Now if Abreu is so bad defensively that he needs to be a full time DH then your idea makes sense. Otherwise you are better holding on to Dunn and maybe at the trading deadline he brings back a good prospect from a team in the pennant race
