Dunning enters his first season with the Ducks in the midst of his ninth season of professional baseball. The right-hander reached the Major Leagues in 2013 and 2014 with the San Francisco Giants. He combined to appear in 30 games out of the bullpen and accrued a 2.77 ERA, yielding just eight runs in 26 innings while striking out 16 batters. The 28-year-old made his Major League debut on June 16, 2013 against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, tossing one scoreless inning of relief. Three days later, he recorded his first MLB strikeout, setting down the San Diego Padres’ Chris Denorfia in the eighth inning after taking over for Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner.

The Georgia native began the 2017 season in the Chicago White Sox organization, splitting time at Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He posted a 2-1 record and picked up a save in 14 games (one start), striking out 23 batters in 24 and two-thirds innings. In 2016, the Indiana University alum appeared in a career-high 49 games with Triple-A Sacramento and struck out 43 batters in 59 and one-third innings. Dunning was originally drafted by the Giants in the 33rd round of the 2009 amateur draft.
