Chicago White Sox 1B Paul Konerko has a sixth-inning double Wednesday, April 3, against the Kansas City Royals. It was the 2,136th hit of his career, tying him for third on the franchise's all-time hits list with former 1B Frank Thomas.

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo is prepared for his second straight season as the team's left fielder. However, he has played third base, first base and right field during his time with the team, and he could move back to first base depending on the moves made with 1Bs Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko in the near future. "He certainly has the ability to play first if we needed that at some point down the road," general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday, March 26. "Again, given that we do have some outfield depth coming that hopefully continues to develop the way it has been developing, that could be an option."

Chicago White Sox 1B Paul Konerko is expected to serve as the fifth batter in manager Robin Ventura's batting order, although it is subject to change.
Fantasy Tip: Konerko is entering what is believed to be his final major league season, but if that is indeed the case, don't expect him to go out quietly. He can still be a great help to fantasy owners in both AL-only play and mixed formats, and he'll have plenty of RBI opportunities from this spot.

Chicago White Sox hitting coach Jeff Manto likes where 1B Paul Konerko is with his swing this spring. "His hands are freer earlier than they have been in the past, he says," Manto said of Konerko's swing. "He's having a lot of good at-bats. He's the lowest maintenance guy we have. You look at him and know what you are going to get. He has moved his progress along quickly."

Chicago White Sox 1B Paul Konerko said Sunday, Feb. 17, that he still has no decision about his future beyond the 2013 season. He is headed into the final season of a three-year deal, and he is repeatedly asked about retirement after the season. "It's going to happen," Konerko said. "All my tight friends that I played with coming up are out of the game. I see what the other side is and there are pluses and minuses to that. I pick their brains on it. But you got to prepare. I'm not afraid of that. I'm not scared of it. I just want to go as hard as I can until it happens."
Fantasy Tip: Konerko certainly isn't someone to rely upon in long-term keeper formats, but he still had a tremendous season in 2012 and will be a nice first base or corner infielder option for fantasy owners in all formats this season, even if it is his last.

Chicago White Sox 1B Paul Konerko will have more time away from field duty during the 2013 season, as manager Robin Ventura said Konerko would be used more often as a designated hitter and 1B Adam Dunn would play first.
