Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko was sidelined for a second straight game Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays after having a procedure to flush a bone chip out of a joint in his left wrist.
Konerko said he hoped to be back for the series finale Thursday but
wasn't sure. The wrist was still sore from the 25-minute procedure,
which he also underwent on June 3, 2011. He said a needle is put in his
wrist and then fluid is injected into the joint to move the bone chip.
Konerko said he would likely have surgery after the season to remove it
Konerko is batting .366 with 11 homers and 33 RBIs. Backup catcher
Tyler Flowers got the start at first base Wednesday.
