CHICAGO -- The return of Adam Dunn to the White Sox starting lineup sounds as if it's more likely to come this weekend at home against the Angels. The designated hitter has missed six straight games after having an appendectomy performed early Wednesday morning in Kansas City.
"Yeah, when he tells me he's ready to go, I am going to give him an extra day," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. "He talked to me yesterday. Every time he's running, he's uncomfortable there.
"We better wait to see how he's running the bases a little bit. Very cautious for us. Obviously the pain is going to be there. How much he is going to tolerate, that is the question."
Carlos Quentin started at designated hitter Monday against Oakland southpaw Dallas Braden, with Brent Lillibridge moving to right field. Mark Teahen was 5-for-10 with three RBIs over three straight starts this weekend at DH.
