I say no. You could use another hitter in case Brown/Bonifacio/Papi aren't your 2nd UTIL slot, but you could look on the waiver wire/free agency list for someone, dropping Ackley in the process. With Bonifacio and Altuve, you don't need another 2B, and well, Ackley hasn't, well, panned out so well, you know?

You have a solid team, and Fernandez could be lightning in a bottle.

I know he hurts the BA a little but his power walks XBH OBP are all great and worthwhile on your team. I'd do it. You have plenty of solid BA/speed/run production elsewhere and having Ortiz/Dunn gives you a nice boost to your XBH/power. He's a young rookie pitcher who can EASILY be replaced out of FA. You won't find a bat like Dunn's in FA IMO.
