Wrist procedure keeps Konerko out of lineup

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Paul Konerko was a late scratch from the White Sox lineup Tuesday night after having a small chip flushed in his left wrist before the game. Konerko, who had the same procedure done in early June last season, is expected back in the lineup Wednesday..

The Sox did not say before the game why the first baseman would not be playing against the Toronto Blue Jays. Konerko was given the day off Sunday and the team was off on Monday. He talked to reporters before the game and did not give any indication that anything was wrong. He did not speak to reporters after the game.

"They took care of it today and he should be available [Wednesday],'' manager Robin Ventura said.

Konerko is batting .366 with 11 home runs, 13 doubles and 33 RBI.

Brent Lillibridge replaced Konerko in the lineup and batted ninth. Dayan Viciedo moved into Konerko's cleanup spot.
