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.
