Blue Jays Vs. White Sox Lineups: Paul Konerko Returns To Lineup After Missing 3 Straight

The Chicago White Sox (31-25), clinging to a 0.5 game lead in the AL Central Standings, take on the Toronto Blue Jays (30-26) on Thursday, and the south side will have their most important bat in the lineup again with 1B Paul Konerko returning from his three-game injury absence.

The long-time Sox slugger is hitting .366/.445/.617 with 11 home runs in the 2012 MLB season, and he has been the anchor to a revitalized White Sox lineup. Here is a look at Thursday's order, courtesy of CSN Chicago:

  2. Gordon Beckham 2B
  3. Adam Dunn 1B
  4. Paul Konerko DH
