Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn, who is entering the final year of his contract, told The Washington Post that he has no desire to become a full-time DH.
"I like playing the field," Dunn said. "DH-ing is awesome during interleague, because it gives you a little break. But I couldn’t do it full time. I won’t do it full time. You can write that out right now."
Dunn added that he would like to sign an extension with Washington before the end of spring training.
In December, Nationals president Stan Kasten told Dunn in a radio interview that he needed to improve his defense at first base or accept going to the AL and becoming a DH.
