MINNEAPOLIS — Adam Dunn returned to the White Sox lineup on Saturday after missing seven consecutive games with a strained right oblique.

Dunn was in the lineup at first base, with Paul Konerko at designated hitter for the 12:10 p.m. game.

“We’re going to unleash him today, so he’s been let out of the training room so we can get him in there,” manager Robin Ventura said. ‘Talking to [trainer] Herm [Schneider], it’s better for him to stay loose so he’ll be at first base.”

Today’s lineup vs. the Twins’ Samuel Deduno (6-3, 3.55):

De Aza CF

Youkilis 3b

Dunn 1b

Konerko dh
