The White Sox won’t change their method in regard to Paul Konerko’s future, general manager Rick Hahn said Monday.
There has been plenty of speculation about what will happen with Konerko, who is in the final season of a three-year, $37.5-million deal, in 2014.
Konerko -- who is hitting .248 with 10 homers and 47 RBIs -- has said since the beginning he would wait until after the 2013 season to determine whether or not he wants to play again next year. If he wants to return, then comes the question of whether or not the White Sox would bring him back.

Similar to Konerko, Hahn said Monday the team holds the same stance it has had since the start of the season -- and in the past -- and will wait until after the season ends to speak to Konerko.
“As we have said since spring training, just as the last two times he entered the final year of his contract, I think we’ll sit down once the season is over and he knows what he wants to do,” Hahn said. “We will have a conversation in private about the future and how everyone fits. So until the season ends there’s really nothing to talk about there either.”
