In Spring Training, Dunn told the media he needed to be aggressive earlier in counts to cut down on strikeouts and raise his batting average. The thought was that too many pitchers threw him a good pitch to hit on the first one. However, this plan is backfiring on Dunn and putting him behind in the count early. Pitchers have caught on to this and are throwing him poor pitches to hit on the first one. Dunn's game is to work the counts deep and either hit a HR, walk, or K. Now, he is getting no walks because he is swinging early and putting himself in a hole and just striking out all the time.
