White Sox activate 1B Konerko from DL

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have activated first baseman Paul Konerko from the seven-day concussion disabled list.

The AL Central-leading White Sox also recalled left-hander Hector Santiago from Triple-A Charlotte before Friday night's game at Kansas City. Infielder Orlando Hudson (bruised left foot) and left-hander Leyson Septimo (left biceps inflammation) were placed on the 15-day DL.

Konerko was the designated hitter and batting cleanup for the series opener against the Royals. He entered with a .316 batting average, 18 homers and 54 RBIs in 101 games.

Konerko was hurt when he was struck by a Jarrod Dyson elbow while covering first base on Aug. 7 against the Royals.

Hudson fouled a ball off his foot on Wednesday. He is batting .182 in 36 games.
