White Sox slugger Paul Konerko hit his 400th career homer last week and holds a .383/.444/.679 batting line in 90 plate appearances this season.
So we’ll call Sunday a well-earned day of rest.
According to Sahadev Sharma of ESPN Chicago, the first baseman was scratched from the lineup this afternoon due to neck stiffness. It’s not a serious issue, but the White Sox didn’t want to push it.
“He’s had it the past couple days, but played through it,” said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. “Today it’s just more of being cautious so nothing happens.”
