Konerko injury not that bad

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Paul-Konerko_1.jpgThe right thumb injury to Paul Konerko is not as bad as first believed, and manager Ozzie Guillen declared that the first baseman could even be available to play Friday night in Milwaukee.
Konerko spoke to the media Thursday morning and reiterated that it was the same injury that hampered him for years, with it getting to a point of no return after his third at-bat against Justin Verlander on Wednesday.
The team captain had a shot - more for prevention - back in mid-March, with the hope that he wouldn't need another one until the All-Star Break. That plan went out the window, however, as he was scheduled to receive that July shot a bit earlier, specifically this afternoon.
Until Konerko is ready to return Josh Fields will be the Sox starting first baseman.

Oh great. Now when "Josh no hit...no Fields" muffs the ball, all he has to do is pick it up.

Meh...I'll believe its not that bad when i see it...i remember hearing about konerkos sore hand for the better part of 4 months last year...so im skeptical..
