Dunn was initially an outfielder, but the Yankees converted him into a pitcher.[1] 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 spent the majority of the 2008 season in single A, playing for the Tampa Yankees, going 4-7 in 30 games. He also played in 1 game in 2008 with the Trenton Thunder Double-A team.

Dunn was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster following the 2008 season to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[2] 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.[3] He made his major league debut on September 4, 2009 against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Atlanta Braves

On December 22, 2009 the New York Yankees traded Dunn, OF Melky Cabrera and pitching prospect Arodys Vizcaino to re-acquire Javier Vázquez from the Braves with LHP Boone Logan.[4]
