Dayan Viciedo went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in Sunday's monster win over the Rangers.

Viciedo fell a triple shy of the cycle, but with four career triples it's no huge surprise that he didn't accomplish the feat. Even so, the outfielder scored all three times on base while driving in two. The 25-year-old is 10-for-27 (.370) since becoming a regular a week ago, easing some of the pain of the loss of Avisail Garcia.

Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-4 with a double against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Viciedo is now hitting .350 in 20 Cactus League at-bats. That's good news for the White Sox who have recently had trade discussions involving Viciedo. For fantasy purposes, Viciedo doesn't offer much besides an ability to hit home runs. He hit 25 in 2012 and 14 last season in 70 fewer at-bats.

Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago reports that the Mariners and White Sox have had discussions about a trade revolving around outfielder Dayan Viciedo.

Levine says the Sox are not shopping Viciedo but are willing to listen. The club is also listening to offers for Alejandro De Aza, so there would seem to be a decent chance one of them is moved prior to Opening Day. Viciedo, 25, has intriguing power potential but is coming off a disappointing season that saw him bat just .265/.304/.426 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI over 124 games.
Mar 9 - 11:10 AM

Dayan Viciedo said Saturday that he's willing to play wherever the team asks him to, including third base.

The 24-year-old appeared in 23 games at third base with the White Sox during his rookie season in 2010, but has been used almost exclusively as an outfielder since. With an excess of quality options in the outfield however, without a trade the White Sox may have to find creative ways to get all of their bats in the lineup, and Viciedo playing third base could be an option if he can handle the position defensively.
Jan 25 - 1:06 PM

White Sox and OF Dayan Viciedo avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

Viciedo was a Super Two qualifier, so he gets four years of salary arbitration starting in 2014. The 24-year-old outfielder batted .265/.304/.426 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI in 124 games last season. He hit .255/.300/.444 with 25 homers and 78 RBI in 2012.
Jan 13 - 1:27 PM

Dayan Viciedo went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo homer against the Orioles on Saturday afternoon.

This was just Viciedo's third homer since the beginning of last month. Viciedo's batting average (.261) and on-base percentage (.304) are nearly identical to his output last season, but his dearth of home runs (12) show up in his slugging percentage (.426), down almost 20 points from last year.

Dayan Viciedo went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in Wednesday night's 5-2 defeat of the Royals.

Viciedo launched a grand slam in the top of the fourth inning and also tallied two singles. He's clearly over the thumb injury that was bothering him last week and will help the White Sox try to play spoiler down the stretch.

Dayan Viciedo (thumb) returned to the White Sox lineup Friday.

Viciedo went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the win. He hadn't played in eight games due to a lingering thumb injury, but it no longer appears to be a concern.
