Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko is a career .435 hitter with a pair of home runs against Tigers left-hander David Price.
Insight: The 38-year-old is planning to retire at the end of the season, so he will likely be one of your last chances to get him in your lineup. Over his 18-year career he's a .279 hitter with 439 homers, 1,412 RBI and played in six All-Star games.
 
9/7/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko is a career 2-for-12 (.167) hitter against Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco.
Insight: Konerko may not play anyway as he has a fracture in his left hand. The 38-year-old is planning to retire at the end of the season, so he will likely try to play through the fracture to finish the season, but owners should probably stay away from putting him in the lineup.
 
7/10/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko is a career 10-for-28 (.357) with three home runs and a 1.223 OPS versus Boston left-hander Jon Lester.
Insight: Konerko doesn't get many opportunities to start, but this could be one of them. He's batting just .228 with five homers and 19 RBI in 123 at-bats.
 
7/7/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko is a career 7-for-15 (.467) with a 1.263 OPS versus Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Considering Adam Dunn is 0-for-7 against Buchholz, it should be an easy decision for manager Robin Ventura. Update: Konerko is not in the starting lineup.
 
7/7/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko is a career 7-for-15 (.467) with a 1.263 OPS versus Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Considering Adam Dunn is 0-for-7 against Buchholz, it should be an easy decision for manager Robin Ventura.
 
6/3/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: White Sox DH/1B Paul Konerko should get the nod over Adam Dunn on Tuesday against Dodgers starter Dan haren.
Insight: Adam Dunn is just 2-for-18 (.111) against the right-hander while Konerko is a career .381 hitter with a home run versus Haren (8-for-21). Jose Abreu is back from the disabled list so neither Dunn or Konerko has the option of playing at 1B.
 
5/10/2014 4:45:00 PM
Description: White Sox 1B Paul Konerko will get a rare start on Saturday.
Insight: Adam Dunn gets the day off against the left-handed Wade Miley and the home run leader Jose Abreu will be the DH. Konerko hasn't been fantasy worthy since 2012 and isn't a good play today.

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.
 
9/29/2013 10:56:00 AM
Description: White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is still on the fence about retirement. SOURCE: Chicago Sun-Times
Insight: He'll take a month off to weigh his options. If Konerko (.245, 12 HR, 54 RBI) decides to play one more season, it's doubtful that he'd play for anyone other than the White Sox.
 
9/24/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Chicago first baseman Paul Konerko left Tuesday's game after fouling a ball off his knee, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com.
Insight: Konerko is expected to address his future during Chicago's final homestand this weekend, ESPN Chicago reported earlier today. The 37-year-old has hit just .248 with 11 homers, 53 RBI and a .672 OPS in 508 plate appearances this season.
 
9/15/2013 10:39:00 AM
Description: Chicago first baseman Paul Konerko has gone 3-for-18 (.167) with zero extra-base hits against Cleveland's Zach McAllister.
Insight: The two will square off Sunday. Konerko has long appeared to be ageless but he has hit a wall this season, batting .247 with 11 homers, 51 RBI and a .679 OPS in 479 plate appearances.
 
9/8/2013 10:55:00 AM
Description: Chicago first baseman Paul Konerko won't be in the starting nine Sunday versus Baltimore.
Insight: Jeff Keppinger will get the start at first while Adam Dunn will do the DHing. Konerko, who is 4-for-10 in the series, will be a free agent after this season.
 
Cold8/25/2013 11:22:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko's miserable season has gotten worse in August -- he's hitting .203 with a .603 OPS this month -- but a matchup with Texas' Matt Garza Sunday might be able to help Konerko recapture his youth for a day.
Insight: The 37-year-old Konerko owns a .467 average (7-for-15) with two doubles, three homers, two walks, seven RBI and zero strikeouts against Garza. If you're still holding onto Konerko, start him Sunday.
 
8/23/2013 11:25:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is questionable for Friday's game against Texas after missing the last game due to feeling lightheaded, according to beat reporter Dan Hayes.
Insight: The 37-year-old has hit a wall in 2013, batting .241 with nine homers and a .662 OPS in 94 games after being a .300 hitter for the past three seasons.
 
8/21/2013 9:52:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has struck out 11 times in 36 at-bats against James Shields of the Royals.

8/5/2013 11:43:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is 13-for-23 (.371) with two homers and a 1.093 OPS versus Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte.
Insight: On Sunday Konerko homered for the first time since returning from the disabled list, but we're still waiting to see if he's really back.
 
7/30/2013 10:30:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is 11-for-24 (.458) with two homers and a 1.369 OPS versus Cleveland left-hander Scott Kazmir.
Insight: Konerko is batting just .200 since returning from the disabled list and should not be started until we see some signs of life - even in this favorable matchup.
 
Cold7/29/2013 11:20:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is 2-for-15 (.133) without an extra base hit versus Cleveland starter Zach McAllister.
Insight: Konerko is a pitiful 5-for-30 (.167) since returning from the disabled list and should not be started until we see some signs of life.
 
7/26/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is 3-for-13 (.231) since returning from the disabled list, and he doesn't have a favorable matchup Friday against the Royals.
Insight: Konerko is a pitiful 5-for-33 (.152) with zero extra-base hits and 11 K against Kansas City starter James Shields. Sit him Friday.
 
7/22/2013 2:43:00 PM
Description: Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has been activated from the disabled list in time for Monday's game against Detroit.
