White Sox Injury Update: Paul Konerko hits off a tee

By on 9/15/2014 07:30:00 AM

The Derek Jeter retirement parade has been going on for months, but Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is not set to begin his retirement yet.  Scott Merkin is reporting that he has hit off a tee and should be able to play in one of the team's next two series.
In his 18th season, the seven time all-star has only played in 74 games this season.  He has a .220 average with five home runs and 22 RBIs.  He has not only dealt with injury, but also the emergence of rookie phenom, Jose Abreu.

By spending 16 years with the White Sox he has become the face of the franchise.  Through his years as their first base mainstay, he is a career .279 hitter who has hit 439 home runs and driven in over 1,400 runs. 

The White Sox will finish their season at home against the Kansas City Royals on September 28th. Konerko will receive a fine sendoff whether he makes it back or not, but the veteran would surely love to be on the field for that final game.
