Jose Abreu proving he prepared himself well for long season

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The baseball season is a grind, a mental and physical marathon with a level of difficulty like no other in sports, according to White Sox captain Paul Konerko. Jose Abreu is going to go the distance. Aside from a 15-day stint on the disabled list with a bum ankle, he has been in the lineup almost  every day. Because ‘‘the distance’’ in Cuba was 90 games, Abreu’s stamina in his first 162-game season has been a topic of discussion in...

Hand sore, but Konerko ready to return

CHICAGO -- Retiring Chicago White Sox captain Paul Konerko reported progress with the small fracture in his left hand and might be able to return to action during the first series of the upcoming road trip. After taking about 30-40 swings Saturday, Konerko’s goal is to play at some point in the three games at Kansas City that begin Monday. Barring that, he is certain he could appear in next weekend’s series at Tampa Bay. “I'm in a pretty good spot; I took some swings off the tee, some soft toss,” said Konerko, who suffered the injury during a game at Minnesota earlier this month.

The Twins weren’t about to complain, especially since Konerko’s 50 home runs against the Twins are his most against any one team. All that production, though, didn’t stop Twins manager Ron Gardenhire from complimenting the productive career of the White Sox’s slugger, who will retire once the season ends later this month.
