White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko late scratch

Paul Konerko was a late scratch from the Chicago White Sox’s

lineup Friday night after having a minor medical procedure to

dislodge a loose fragment in his left wrist.

Konerko, who is hitting .312 with 12 home runs and 44 RBIs, had

the procedure done late Friday afternoon at Rush University Medical

Center. He will be available to pinch-hit.

Adam Dunn, who originally had the night off against Detroit

left-hander Andrew Oliver, will fill in at first base. Dunn is

hitting .180 with five home runs and 23 RBIs. Dunn is 0 for 38

against left-handers this season.
