#WhiteSox won't make a corresponding move until Saturday after Paul Konerko was placed on the 7-day DL on Friday with a concussion.
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.
