The White Sox tough love toward Dayan Viciedo is being rewarded.
There wasn't much time for Gordon Beckham to rest upon his return to the White Sox on Thursday.
Paul Konerko had 9,201 career plate appearances prior to this 2014 season. None of them really prepared the White Sox captain for his pinch-hitting/part-time role he's taken on in this 16th and final season playing for the South Siders.
Adam Eaton missed a fifth straight game due to a mild strain in his left knee, although he "begged" Robin Ventura to let him play Thursday, according to the White Sox manager.

When Zack Putnam was growing up in Ann Arbor, Mich., he counted the Tigers as his favorite baseball team. But the White Sox right-hander had no trouble setting a personal high with four strikeouts Tuesday night against that one-time favorite.
White Sox slugger Adam Dunn called Albert Pujols, who hit a pair of home runs Tuesday night to become a member of the 500 home run club "one of the best players of our generation, if not ever."
Despite being on the disabled list for the first time in his career, White Sox left-hander Chris Sale doesn't believe his pitching repertoire has to drastically change for health reasons.
Charlie Leesman's 2014 debut lasted all of 2 2/3 innings after allowing six runs on nine hits and a walk to the Tigers in an 8-6 loss at Comerica Park on Tuesday night. Jose Abreu homered against Justin Verlander in the first inning, and Dayan Viciedo had a career-high four hits.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura won't shy away from using Chris Sale or his other starters in a slightly elevated pitch count again, depending on the situation and how the given pitcher is feeling.
Third baseman Conor Gillaspie was out of Tuesday's White Sox lineup against Justin Verlander and the Tigers and most likely will miss Wednesday's contest because of a sore left hand.

The White Sox have already seen dramatic results their "selectively aggressive" offensive approach.
Left-hander Chris Sale, who threw a career-high 127 pitches against Boston on Thursday, was placed the 15-day disabled list with a flexor muscle strain.
About the only thing that didn't go right for the White Sox in a 16-2 victory over the Rangers on Sunday was a sixth-inning challenge during an at-bat involving Alejandro De Aza.
Adam Dunn probably cares less about a .300 average than any player in baseball. The .238 career hitter certainly has the skills to reach that level, as he entered Sunday's series finale with the Rangers batting .304. It's just that average as a statistic has and always will rank low on the priority list for the middle-of-the-order run producer.

During John Danks' 2013 struggles, in which he posted a 4.75 ERA over 138 1/3 innings, the veteran southpaw still was able to consistently find the strike zone. He walked just 27, although the counter was Danks allowed 28 home runs.
Walking the leadoff hitter in four straight innings certainly isn't a conducive recipe for success on most afternoons or evenings at the ballpark. But that exact formula worked for White Sox starter Erik Johnson during an 16-2 victory over the Rangers in Sunday afternoon's series finale at Globe Life Park.
