Paul Konerko Has A Mild Concussion

Star first baseman Paul Konerko wasn't in the lineup during the Chicago White Sox's 2-1 loss in the series finale vs. the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. After the game, manager Robin Ventura revealed why.

Konerko suffered a mid concussion vs. the Royals on Tuesday. Ventura said the veteran will sit out again on Thursday before being reevaluated on Friday for the start of a three-game home series vs. the Oakland A's.

Konerko is having another monster for Chicago. The 36-year is hitting .316 with a .388 on-base percentage and .504 slugging percentage over 377 at-bats thus far. Konerko has 18 homers and 54 runs driven in.
