Nats GM not impressed with offers for Dunn

MLB.com reports Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo doesn’t like the trade offers he has received for first baseman Adam Dunn ahead of baseball’s July 31 nonwaiver trading deadline.

Last week, Rizzo told reporters it would take "an extraordinary deal" to move Dunn, who can become a free agent after the season. Negotiations on a new contract have stalled.

The White Sox, Angels and Yankees reportedly have expressed interest in Dunn as a first baseman or designated hitter.

Dunn said Saturday he’s not anxious about the situation.

"There’s nothing I can control so what am I going to get impatient about?" Dunn asked. "I’m playing baseball — I’m not playing any other game. It’s out of my decision and I don’t know anything else to say about it. It’s out of my control."
