News: Konerko (hand) will rest Saturday but is expected to be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Impact: Konerko is still recovering from a hand injury that left him out of the lineup for a significant amount of time until he was able to play Friday. While not trying to rush into anything, he'll cautiously rest up before his appearance Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Konerko is back in the starting lineup after being out since early September because of a broken left hand. Impact: Konerko was listed to hit sixth in the posted lineup for Friday night's game at Tampa Bay. He hurt the hand in a game Sept. 2 against Minnesota. Konerko is retiring after this season, his 18th in the big leagues. The White Sox will honor him during a pregame ceremony on Sept. 27. (STATS, 3:43pm)

News: Konerko (hand) is back in the lineup Friday against the Rays. Impact: The training staff has signed off on Konerko returning to action, after his fractured hand held up well during an extended batting practice session earlier in the week. It will be his first start since Sept. 2. It's uncertain how Konerko will be deployed over the final week, but it's hard to imagine he'll play every day given his age and the nature of the injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Konerko (hand) could return Wednesday, but says he will certainly be ready by Friday, CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes reports. Impact: He hit 30 pitches in extended batting practice Tuesday, and while Konerko is close to returning, there isn't a set plan for how Chicago plans to deploy him over the final 11 games. The White Sox are holding Paul Konerko Day on Sept. 27, so he'll definitely be in the lineup for that affair, but it's doubtful he'll be used like an everyday player down the stretch.(RotoWire, )

News: Konerko (hand) felt only normal soreness after taking swings in the batting cage Saturday. Impact: Konerko is presumably ready to play again, and he should return to action in the next week. If he does not play in the upcoming three-game set with the Royals, he is confident he will be ready to play in next weekend's series with the Rays.(RotoWire, )

News: Konerko (hand) hopes to swing with his fractured hand over the weekend, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Konerko has been progressing well, and is hopeful that he will be able to return some point during the team's nine-game road trip starting Monday. The swelling in his hand has gone down, so if he can swing pain-free, he could return next week.(RotoWire, )
