Schouwen @ CST:

The White Sox will take on the New York Yankees and left-hander CC Sabathia without their best hitter.

Paul Konerko, who was hit near his left knee by a pitch from Red Sox lefty Andrew Miller and sustained a bruised left calf on Sunday, is not in the starting lineup as the Sox continue an important homestand tonight with a four-game series against New York at U.S. Cellular Field.

Will the Sox have any offense tonight?

Adam Dunn, who has three hits against lefties this season, will play first base. Carlos Quentin slides into Dunn’s customary designed hitter spot while Brent Lillibridge will play right right field.

And who will play left right field?
