Dunn has been on the disabled list since July 7 with discomfort in the AC joint.

Phillies blow eighth-inning lead, fail to sweep Marlins
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies manager Pete Mackanin still isn't sure why reliable reliever Hector Neris didn't throw his best pitch in a big spot.
With the Phillies leading by two runs in the eighth and closing in on a three game-sweep of the Miami Marlins, Neris allowed a two-run homer to Christian Yelich and a go-ahead infield single to J.T. Realmuto as the Marlins rallied for a 5-4 victory Sunday.
