Lineup: Pierzynski to sit vs. Royals

CHICAGO -- After sitting Friday, Adam Dunn is expected to miss the next two games as he returned home to tend to a family issue.

Both Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham get the night off in favor of Alejandro De Aza and Omar Vizquel, and Tyler Flowers catches for A.J. Pierzynski who is day-to-day with a bruised left wrist. Jake Peavy takes the mound against the Kansas City Royals who counter with Luke Hochevar. Paul Konerko remains at DH, but hopes his bruised calf will be healed enough for him to return to first base sometime this week.

"It's still bothersome when I run and kind of move side to side," Konerko said. "If I can just get over that hump, the goal I think is to get back in the field playing first. I'm hoping Tuesday, at the latest maybe Wednesday."

Here's a quick look at Saturday's lineup:

1. Juan Pierre - LF

2. Omar Vizquel - 2B

3. Paul Konerko - DH

4. Carlos Quentin - RF

5. Alexei Ramirez - SS

6. Alejandro De Aza - CF

7. Brent Morel - 3B

8. Brent Lillibridge - 1B

9. Tyler Flowers - C
