Found June 02, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko exited yesterday’s game in the sixth inning due to a stiff neck, and manager Robin Ventura told reporters – including Willie Bans of MLB.com – that he’s likely to rest the veteran for today’s weekend finale against the Oakland Athletics. Konerko woke up with discomfort in his neck yesterday, and the condition only got worse as the day went on. He still started yesterday’s game, but he went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts before being lifted for pinch-hitter Casper Wells in the sixth. After the game, Konerko told reporters that the area around his lower right neck and trapezoid bunched up too much for him to keep his hands on the bat. He’s faced neck issues before, and he said he’d rather err on the side of caution than continue to play through the pain. "I've played enough to know that if you go out there all the time, you hold your breath and you have good games, you have bad games, whatever," he said. "Sometimes you know it's not pain or anything, it's about restriction. What you can get to, what you can't get to." Konerko is off to a slow start to the season for the White Sox, hitting only .240/.303/.358 with six doubles and five home runs over 198 plate appearances.

Beckham Reinstated from DL; Greene DFA'd

After missing almost two months with a broken hamate bone in his left hand, White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is back. It wasn’t really your typical DL stint and rehab assignment for Beckham, as he made news on two separate occasions down in Charlotte. First, we saw Beckham actually spend some time at shortstop in AAA, which drew a lot of different responses and thoughts...

Little Danks Called Up with Wise Hitting the DL

Well, we're kicking off June with yet another White Sox injury update. This time, it's the D.Wise edition.

White Sox place Dewayne Wise on DL with strained hamstring

As the rash of hamstring injuries continue this season, another victim has been claimed.  The Chicago White Sox placed Dewayne Wise on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.  While the White Sox likely could have made the move retroactive, they chose not to.  Wise will need plenty of time to heal from the injury, so there was no sense in back-dating the move...

White Sox activate Gordon Beckham

The Chicago White Sox have activated second-baseman Gordon Beckham from the disabled list. MLB.com's Willie Bans reports that Beckham will rejoin his team in Seattle as the White Sox take on the Mariners on June 3.

June 2: A's 2, White Sox 0

Same old story… Same old song and dance, my friend. Generally, 1970’s Aerosmith lyrics are the furthest thing from my mind on a Sunday afternoon. However, today as I watched the White Sox offense squander yet another great outing by starting pitcher Chris Sale, I oddly found this little chorus looping in my head over and over. Maybe the explanation can be found...

White Sox-Mariners Preview

The Chicago White Sox are enduring their longest road losing streak in five years, so visiting the Seattle Mariners for a three-game series may be a relief. Giving the ball to John Danks may also help. With Paul Konerko expected back in the lineup, Danks and the White Sox look to continuing their dominance of the Mariners in the opener of this three-game series Monday night. Chicago...

With the win, Parker improved...

Parker, A’s Shut Out White Sox

The A’s completed a three game sweep of Chicago on Sunday afternoon behind Jerrod Parker’s best pitching performance on the season and Coco Crisp’s speedy style of play. Parker had a tough assignment going up against White Sox ace Chris Sale, but out-dueled the lanky lefty to win 2-0. “I’m not pitching against him, I’m pitching against the guy in the box,” said Parker...

May 31: A's 3, White Sox 0

The White Sox offense picked up where they left off against the Cubs, as they were totally overmatched by Bartolo Colon.

Athletics 2, White Sox 0

Josh Donaldson's sixth-inning sacrifice fly ended a career-best 28-inning scoreless streak by Chicago starter Chris Sale, and the Oakland Athletics beat the White Sox 2-0 on Sunday for a weekend sweep. Jarrod Parker (4-6) hung tough in an impressive pitcher's duel with Sale to win back-to-back starts for the first time this year. The right-hander matched his season high...

Thirteen months ago the Chicago White Sox (24-28) loss to the Oakland A’s (32-24) after 14 innings and a two-run hit off of Hector Santiago’s pitch to Yoenis Cespedes.
