News: Konerko was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts Sunday against Kansas City in the final game of his career. Impact: Konerko posted a .572 OPS while playing just 81 games this year - not exactly a fitting end to the career of one of the most productive hitters of his generation. He finishes with a .279 career average with 439 homers and 1,412 RBIs over 2,349 games.(STATS, 12:46pm)

News: Konerko is in the lineup Sunday for the final game of his career. Impact: Konerko will make one more start in a lengthy career that began in 1997. He will play first base and bat cleanup Sunday against Kansas City's Yordano Ventura.(RotoWire, )

News: Konerko is expected to start each of the final three games of the season against the Royals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Impact: Though a little weakened by a recent hand injury, Konerko won't miss out on the opportunity to give White Sox fans a final bow as he heads into retirement after the season. Konerko is no longer the perennial power threat he used to be, but because many managers use the final weekend to rest their regulars, the 38-year-old may be one of the few players across the league that can be marked down for guaranteed at-bats.(RotoWire, )

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, )
