Description: Paul Konerko isn't going anywhere. The veteran first baseman has agreed to a $2.5 million contract that will keep him in Chicago for another season. SOURCE: Scott Merkin, MLB.com
Insight: Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn are likely to see most of the reps at first base which means Konerko probably won't be an everyday player anymore. Because of this, his fantasy use will be limited to AL-only formats.
