Dunn unavailable for rest of Royals series

CHICAGO -- Adam Dunn was out of the lineup for the second straight game on Saturday and will also miss Sunday's series finale against the Royals as he tends to a family matter, manager Ozzie Guillen said.

"Dunn has some family issues," Guillen said. "He should be back -- I told him he's not playing [Sunday] either -- but he should be back Tuesday."

In his place, Brent Lillibridge made his fourth career start at first base on Saturday, as the utility man continues to adjust to the latest position added to his arsenal. With Paul Konerko still nursing a left calf and knee injury that has relegated him to DH duties and Dunn continuing to struggle at the plate, Guillen also called on Lillibridge to start at first for one game each in Minnesota and Baltimore last week.

Entering Saturday's game, Lillibridge had yet to make an error this season while playing each of the outfield positions, second base and now first base, as he continues to learn the latest one on the fly by taking pre-game infield practice.

"He's a great athlete," Konerko said. "For the most part, a guy like him who can play the infield and the outfield, and move well, most guys like that can pull it off pretty easily."
