Saturday Farm Report: Dunn Strong Inning in Rehab Effort at Albuquerque

Mike Dunn, able to be activated from the 60-day disabled list on Sept. 3, worked a shutout inning in relief for Triple-A Albuquerque in his second appearance on a rehab assignment. Dunn gave up a leadoff double to Kristopher Negron. A fly ball to center and two ground balls later, Negron was stranded on third.

The effort came after a Tuesday appearance in El Paso when he retired two batters and gave up two runs on three hits and two walks before a lengthy rain delay.

Dunn has been sidelined since July 4 with inflamation in his left AC joint.
