Konerko streak of openers to end for White Sox

Share Tweet Email

CHICAGO (AP) — Paul Konerko will likely be watching from the bench for the start of what figures to be his 16th and final opening day with the Chicago White Sox

And the 38-year-old first baseman is comfortable with that decision, which ends a streak of 15 consecutive opening-day starts.

Konerko’s new role is as a right-handed-hitting platoon player at designated hitter. With Minnesota starting right-hander Ricky Nolasco, left-handed-hitting Adam Dunn will start.
