This is likely to continue. His contract is so huge so there's no way he's going to retire. The Orioles don't have anyone blocking him and have to be hopeful he can turn it around given their financial commitment. He's going to get 500+ at bats this year. This will be all time ugly.

I had to laugh when I saw who his last hit was against (James Shields).

I saw that and thought, "of course it was."

Suddenly, Adam Dunn's 2011 isn't looking so bad, is it?

Man I almost feel bad for the guy, if it werenít for the fact heís owed so much money. Heís definitely in Adam Dunn territory where heís just hopelessly lost at the plate. I think when something like this happens to a Major League player they should be allowed to go down to the minors and work it out. Thereís no reason the team and their fans should be subjected to watching something like this.

PS. I can remember Robin Ventura (0 for 41) and Luis Aparicio (0 for 44) going through something like this but both eventually getting out of their slumps.

I don't believe there's anything preventing this outside of approval by the player himself. Could be wrong on though?

Wouldn't the player need to clear waivers?
I guess there would be some risk that some other team could claim them...

Pretty sure that wouldn't qualify as a risk at this point. More like an extremely unlikely possible upside.

Any player with 3 or more years of major league service has the right to refuse an outright minor league assignment and file for free agency.

Any player with fewer than 3 years of major league service may be outrighted to the minors 1 time in his career. If a team tries to outright the player again, the player may refuse the assignment and file for free agency.

A player outrighted in this way does have the right to accept the assignment and keep getting paid, but most players in this situation just end up getting released instead of outrighted.

We can laugh all we want at the Orioles now over this, but it will be the Orioles who will get the last laugh when they pick ahead of the White Sox in a second consecutive MLB draft.
