CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Konerko was a late scratch from the Chicago White Sox's lineup Friday night after having a minor medical procedure to dislodge a loose fragment in his left wrist.

Konerko, who is hitting .312 with 12 home runs and 44 RBIs, had the procedure done late Friday afternoon at Rush University Medical Center. He will be available to pinch-hit.

Adam Dunn, who originally had the night off against Detroit left-hander Andrew Oliver, will fill in at first base. Dunn is hitting .180 with five home runs and 23 RBIs. Dunn is 0 for 38 against left-handers this season.
