White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has been bothered by discomfort in his left wrist for several days now and finally underwent X-rays on Saturday night to rule out the possibility of structural damage.

Good news.

According to Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago, the X-ray results turned up “normal” and Konerko is not expected to miss a significant amount of time.

Konerko was lifted from Saturday’s 6-0 defeat of the Mariners before his spot in the batting order rolled around in the ninth inning and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen spoke to the media about the situation after the game:

“He’s had that for a little while,” said Guillen. “Something locked there. He took one swing and [he aggravated it]. It was unnecessary to go that last at-bat.”

Konerko, 35, is batting .295/.362/.516 with eight home runs and 27 RBI in 33 games this season.
