Prior to Friday's game, the Chicago White Sox announced they have placed first baseman Paul Konerko on the 7-day disabled with a concussion, as reported by Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago. The team will not make a corresponding roster move until Saturday.

Konerko suffered the concussion Tuesday and missed Wednesday's game before Thursday's off day. Konerko will be eligible to come off the disabled list next Friday, just in time for a series against the Kansas City Royals. The team can use Adam Dunn at first base until Konerko returns.

The 36-year-old Konerko is having yet another fantastic season. Over 101 games on the year, Konerko entered the day batting .316/.388/.504 with 18 home runs and 17 doubles in 423 plate appearances.
