Dunn gets start at first; Konerko DH's
CLEVELAND -- Manger Robin Ventura returned Brent Morel to the second spot in the White Sox batting order for Monday's series opener at Progressive Field. He also moved Paul Konerko to designated hitter and gave Adam Dunn his first 2012 regular-season start in the field at first base.

"Get him in there now, and Paulie will play there tomorrow," Ventura said. "It's just getting in late, letting Paulie DH, get out on the field and I'm fine with that."

Ventura liked the way Dunn was moving at first base during Spring Training.

"I'd rather have him there than in left field," Ventura said. "So we're going to keep him at first."
