Konerko to undergo concussion test tomorrow.

Looking for a silver lining in this dark cloud, hoping that Konerko can come back rested and recharged after (hopefully only) a week off. Look what a little time off did for AJ's batteries. Guy's been on fire since missing 5 days with that oblique injury.

Hopefully a week off will help him shake off all the little aches and pains that come with playing baseball everyday and he'll be fresh for the last stretch of the season.

What's interesting is the 7 day DL doesn't work like the regular DL not only in terms of no retroactive placement, but you have to be examined and its supposedly really tough to qualify to get on it, and very tough to get off of it. Its not as easy as Paulie saying he's ready to go.

If the MLB docs clear him he plays...simple as that.

I don't remember talk of a concussion after that ball he took to the face at Wrigley, but repeated head injuries are a concern. Just get better, Paulie!

Tomorrow is a big day for the Sox in the grand scheme of things -- for reasons that have nothing to do with the game against Toronto. Hopefully Paul is cleared to resume baseball-related activities and returns to the lineup when he's eligible to do so. The Sox can survive in the short term without him, but the team is going to need a healthy, productive Konerko for the big September games ahead.

Yes and I sure hope if Paul will not be ready, their solution isnt coming from their minors or bench.

Tribune says Konerko has been cleared to resume activity on Tuesday (i.e. riding a bike etc...) Then if he's still OK he can start baseball activity.

Good to read that the WS aren't going to rush PK back.

CSN Chicago
The White Sox pushed for his inclusion on the seven-day DL. He will have to endure and pass a series of tests --- both while active and inactive --- and be cleared by Major League Baseball before he returns to the field.

Actually, it's not as simple as that. Just because he is cleared does not mean he is 100%. He could still face some issues or once he starts regular baseball activities could always have a setback. This isn't an arm injury or a leg injury, it's all going to depend on how he feels, his reaction time, etc. I hope he can be back with the team on Friday, but I have a feeling he'll be out until next week or maybe longer.

After his battery of tests yesterday at Rush University Medical Center, Paul Konerko resumed baseball-related activities today.

Good deal. We need his bat back in the lineup. BAD.

I had to edit. I think the rest will do him nicely.

Agree. If anyone needs a week off to get healthy and then come back and crush the ball, it's Paulie.

This could pan out nicely for us down the stretch.

Paul Konerko continues to show positive signs. Hit in cage today & did light work. Robin Ventura said he'll fly to KC on Thursday.
White Sox can't say definitively Paul Konerko will come off DL Fri, bc MLB must clear it. Ventura: "But everything's looking pretty good."

Daryl Van Schouwen
All is good on Konerko front, Ventura said. He'll meet team in KC. Eligible Friday, will DH when he returns, for a game or 2 at least.

I had this exact thought. In fact I'd like to see Viciedo get the majority of time at DH while PK is out for this exact same reason. He's coming into the final few months of his first full season playing the OF. Give him a chance to catch his legs up a bit. It might pay dividends down the road.

It would also enable the Sox to field their best defensive outfield.

I like this idea too. The Tank hit one out today, but he hasn't been much of a factor in this second half. He's slugging at less than a .400 clip since the AS break.

This team isn't deep, so the staff will have to get creative.

Konerko said first three days he felt "out of the world. It's a weird feeling."

Reading that makes me really feel sorry for Justin Morneau and Sidney Crosby. Regardless of their personalities or the teams they're on, feeling like Konerko describes for months? No one should have to deal with that.

Wonder if we'll see him start doing the Olerud thing and wearing a batting helmet in the field.

Voodoo:

Olerud actually wore the helmet because when he was in college he had a brain aneurysm if I remember correctly. The doctors said he couldn't take the risk of getting hit in the head by a ball.
