Konerko, like fellow teammate 3B Antone Williamson, has an exceptional bat with good instincts for the game, but may have to switch to first base because his receiving skills are suspect. He has a strong arm, but a slow lower body impedes his ability to get rid of the ball quickly. His biggest drawback is lack of speed.
