The White Sox' ''Paul Star'' campaign to elect first baseman Paul Konerko to the American League All-Star team had a successful start. At press time, Konerko led the vote to be the final player on the roster.

The Sox are using in-game promotions, social media and online efforts to boost Konerko, who is competing against the Detroit Tigers' Victor Martinez, the Kansas City Royals' Alex Gordon, the Baltimore Orioles' Adam Jones and the Tampa Bay Rays' Ben Zobrist.

A joint effort also was started between the Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers to push fans to vote for each other's finalist. The Dodgers are trying to elect Andre Ethier as the final National League All-Star. Voting ends at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Konerko would join Carlos Quentin in representing the team. But manager Ozzie Guillen predicted the Sox will have another representative in starter Phil Humber. Several AL pitchers won't be available for the All-Star Game if they pitch Sunday.

''Humber will be on there. You watch,'' Guillen said.

Humber, who is 8-4 with a 2.69 ERA, is scheduled to pitch Thursday against the Minnesota Twins. That would make him available to pitch in the game next Tuesday in Phoenix.
