Konerko's been having some back problems, I believe, so his time in the field is limited. I'm sure if we were playing by AL rules he'd have been the DH.
That said, it's not like Konerko's been lighting the world on fire, either. .225/.279/.378 isn't exactly a bat you need to find room for no matter what.
