White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko was accidentally elbowed in the head by the Royals’ Jarrod Dyson 10 days ago. He’s been gradually getting back into baseball activities after being placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list. According to a press release from the team, he’ll be back and available Friday:
Prior to tonight’s game at Kansas City, the Chicago White Sox placed infielder Orlando Hudson on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to August 16) with a contusion of the first metatarsal joint in his left foot, placed left-handed pitcher Leyson Septimo on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to August 14) with left biceps inflammation, reinstated first baseman Paul Konerko from the seven-day disabled list and recalled left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago from Class AAA Charlotte.
Wednesday night in Toronto, Hudson fouled a ball off the top of his foot, and it took him a while just to stand up. The other move will bolster the White Sox’ bullpen.
