The White Sox may have signed free agent slugger Adam Dunn, but don't get fooled into believing that they're done with their lineup. It would appear that the team is also going to bring back first baseman Paul Konerko as well as it looks to build a powerful core.
From Jon Heyman, we learn that people within the game believe that the White Sox will "surely" re-sign the 34-year-old, who's coming off what was arguably a career-best season. In 2010, Konerko mashed 39 home runs while posting a .977 OPS, which made for his second consecutive year of considerable improvement.
Other teams have been reported to have interest in Konerko, but the Diamondbacks have dropped out, and the Orioles' interest was apparently "overblown". Writes Jeff Zrebiec:
The next person I speak to in the organization who feels the O’s have a shot at Konerko would be the first.
