New York YankeesEdit
Dunn was initially an outfielder, but the Yankees converted him into a pitcher. He made his minor league debut in 2006, pitching for both the GCL Yankees and the Staten Island Yankees. Dunn spent the entire 2007 season with the Charleston RiverDogs, going 12–5 with a 3.42 ERA.
Dunn was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster following the 2008 season to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He pitched in 2009 for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, until, on September 1, he was called up to the major leagues for the first time. He made his major league debut on September 4, 2009 against the Toronto Blue Jays.
On May 11, 2012, Dunn was called up by the Marlins. On May 24, he was sent back down after 4 appearances. He was called up again on June 21, after the Marlins sent Chris Hatcher to the minors.
On February 8, 2015 Dunn and the Marlins agreed to a $5.8 million, two-year contract.
On December 15, 2016, Dunn signed a three-year, $19 million contract with the Colorado Rockies. In his first season in Colorado, Dunn pitched in 68 games, collecting an ERA of 4.47 in 501⁄3 innings. In 2018, his season was cut short due to injury, only pitching in 25 games.
On June 19, 2019, the Rockies designated Dunn for assignment. He was released on June 21, 2019.
