Paul Konerko provided the offense in the White Sox's win over Padres on Sunday, hitting his third home run of 2014 while going 2-for-3 at the plate with three RBI.

Konerko slugged a solo home run in the second inning to get the Sox on the board. He then added a two-run double in the sixth to give Chicago all the runs it needed in the 4-1 victory. Konerko, who is batting just .191, has had a hard time adjusting to a part-time role this season.

Paul Konerko (back) has returned to the starting lineup Saturday against the Padres.

Konerko didn't start Wednesday or Friday due to a back strain, but he's going to try to give it a go. The 37-year-old has received more playing time since Jose Abreu landed on the DL, but he'll move back into a part-time role again soon.

Paul Konerko hit a two-run homer off the Royals' Jason Vargas in Monday's win.

Konerko should be the White Sox's regular first baseman for a couple of weeks while Jose Abreu rests his ankle. He probably won't go on a homer spree to celebrate, but it'd sure be nice. Tonight's long ball was his second of the year.

Paul Konerko went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the White Sox defeated the Tigers on Wednesday.

Konerko, who has played sparingly, was hitting .105 in 20 plate appearances entering the night. The 38-year-old was making only his fourth start of the season. With Adam Dunn and Jose Abreu hitting so well, it's hard to fault the White Sox for using Konerko so sparingly.

Making just his second start of the season, Paul Konerko went 0-for-4 on Thursday, leaving him 1-for-13.

With Adam Dunn and Jose Abreu off to such nice starts, the White Sox haven't found much for Konerko to do yet. Fortunately, that seems to be OK with him, though he'd surely prefer to better capitalize on what chances he does get.

Paul Konerko went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run as the White Sox defeated the Mariners 7-6 on Monday.

Konerko took Blake Beavan deep in the sixth inning, ultimately chasing the right-hander out of the game. It is the veteran's first blast of the spring. He also singled for good measure and his spring average is up to .256. The 38-year-old, entering his final season, posted a lackluster .669 OPS last season.

Paul Konerko went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in a losing effort against the Rangers on Sunday.

The 38-year-old slugger will be a part-time player for the White Sox this season as he embarks on his farewell tour around Major League Baseball. Unless injury strikes to Adam Dunn or Jose Abreu, he's probably best left to those in AL-only formats.

White Sox re-signed 1B/DH Paul Konerko to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Konerko will receive $1.5 million in 2014 while another $1 million will be deferred to 2021. The 37-year-old is expected to serve as Jose Abreu's backup at first base while seeing some time at DH against left-handers. However, he likely won't get enough at-bats to be relevant in most mixed fantasy leagues.
