Paul Konerko's left wrist has healed enough that he was given the go-ahead to not only bat for the White Sox but be back at first base for Sunday's finale against the Tigers.
Konerko had miss the previous two games after having a bone fragment flushed from the wrist.
Center fielder Alex Rios was on the bench, replaced by Brent Lillibridge, as his average fell below .200. However, Adam Dunn was the DH against right-hander Brad Penny despite being in a season-long slump and being booed by U.S. Cellular Field fans.
Jake Peavy willl be on the mound looking to give the Sox two wins in the three games against the Tigers.
Here's the lineup:
