Konerko set to play first base on Sunday
KANSAS CITY -- For the first time since Aug. 7, Paul Konerko is expected to play first base for the White Sox on Sunday.

Konerko, who has worked his way back from a concussion, was in the lineup as the designated hitter on Saturday for the second consecutive game. Manager Robin Ventura plans to use Konerko defensively in the series finale against the Royals.

"I just wanted to make sure he was acclimated," Ventura said.
