The Chicago White Sox have placed 1B Paul Konerko (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain. The team has also placed RP Jesse Crain (shoulder) on the 15-day DL because of a right shoulder strain. The move is retroactive to June 30.
Fantasy Tip: Konerko has been dealing with his back injury for the last week or so and will sit out to allow it to heal. Jeff Keppinger could see most of the time at first base while Konerko is out with Conor Gillaspie and Brent Morel splitting time at third base. Both Gillaspie and Morel could have value in AL-only leagues.

Chicago White Sox 1B Paul Konerko (back) received six injections in his back Friday, June 28. He'll try to take batting practice Saturday, June 29, and play Sunday, June 30. If he can't, he'll likely land on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Adam Dunn would likely see most of the starts at first base if Konerko were sidelined. Conor Gillaspie or Brent Morel could also fill in, if needed, but they could also be used in the designated hitter role if Dunn plays first.

The Chicago White Sox placed 3B Conor Gillaspie on the paternity list Wednesday, June 26, and recalled 3B Brent Morel from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie could miss up to three days. Morel is a short-term, temporary fill-in that'll likely be sent back down when Gillaspie returns to the team.

Chicago White Sox minor league 3B Brent Morel (undisclosed), currently playing for Triple-A Charlotte, has been placed on the disabled list with an undisclosed injury.

Scott Merkin speculates that the Chicago White Sox will use some combination of 3Bs Conor Gillaspie and Brent Morel at third base with 2B Gordon Beckham (wrist) out for six weeks. The team has roster flexibility, so they don't necessarily have to call up Morel from Triple-A Charlotte, though.
Fantasy Tip: Neither player is very attractive, except for those desperate for a third sacker in AL-only leagues. The picture will become more clear once the club makes a roster move tomorrow.

The Chicago White Sox optioned 3B Brent Morel and RP Deunte Heath to Triple-A Charlotte Tuesday, March 19, and reassigned 2B Carlos Sanchez and RPs Daniel Moskos and Zach Stewart to minor league camp.

Chicago White Sox 3B Brent Morel received a look at shortstop Thursday, Feb. 28. 3B Jeff Keppinger's (shoulder) sore shoulder has allowed 3B Conor Gillaspie to see more time at third base. Morel was primarily a shortstop in high school and as a freshman at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. "My goal still is to play third base every day," Morel said. "I think that kind of has to be your mindset. And if they want me to play other positions and that's going to get me to break camp and on that 25-man roster, then I'll do anything."
