Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to tightness in his left lower hamstring.

It's not clear when Viciedo suffered the injury, nor is it known how long he might be sidelined. The White Sox should have an update on the outfield's status later Wednesday. Moises Sierra is covering for Viciedo in right field.

Dayan Viciedo blasted a two-run homer in the sixth inning on Friday, helping to power the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Astros.

He also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3. His blast off Scott Feldman in the sixth inning tied the game at 2-2 and set the stage for the White Sox to secure a come-from-behind victory. The Cuban slugger is now hitting .242/.295/.414 with 12 homers and 36 RBI on the year.
Jul 19 - 1:15 AM

Dayan Viciedo went 1-for-3 and delivered an RBI double off Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning on Saturday.

It was his lone hit in three at-bats on the afternoon, but broke a scoreless tie and nearly delivered the White Sox the ballgame until the Mariners mounted a comeback in the ninth inning. A popular name mentioned among trade rumors these days, Viciedo is now hitting .252/.303/.424 on the season with 10 homers and 31 RBI.
Jul 5 - 6:56 PM

Dayan Viciedo went 4-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored against the Mariners on Friday.

Viciedo launched a solo homer in the fourth inning to begin the scoring for the White Sox. He also finished with three singles. The 25-year-old has really dropped off since the start of the season, but he has four home runs in his last seven games to bring his total up to 10 for the year. There's increased chatter that he could be a trade target in advance of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
Jul 4 - 9:51 PM

Gordon Edes of reports that the Mariners and Giants have had trade discussions with the White Sox regarding Dayan Viciedo.

Edes also indicates that the Red Sox could have interest in the outfielder, as they pursued him heavily out of Cuba and are in need of right-handed power. The Mariners have discussed sending Brandon Maurer and another player to the White Sox for Viciedo, Edes says. Viciedo is making just $2.8 million this season and is under team control through 2017.
Jul 4 - 10:27 AM

Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in the second game of the White Sox' doubleheader against the Angels on Tuesday.

Viciedo connected with a Jered Weaver pitch for his ninth home run of the season. It was the outfielder's third blast in his last five games after hitting just one in the month prior. Overall, Viciedo is hitting .245/.298/.409 and isn't worth the hassle outside of AL-only leagues.
Jul 2 - 12:39 AM

Dayan Viciedo blasted a three-run homer on Saturday, powering the White Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Viciedo greeted Dustin McGowan with a three-run bomb with two outs in the seventh inning, turning a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 advantage for the Pale Hose. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4, raising his season slash to .247/.300/.408 to go along with eight homers and 27 RBI.
Jun 28 - 4:49 PM

Dayan Viciedo had two hits including a two-run home run in the White Sox' 8-2 win over the Giants on Tuesday.

Viciedo also scored two runs in the victory. It was a rare bright spot in what's been mostly dark times for the 25-year-old this month. After Tuesday's game, Viciedo is just 6-for-52 (.115) with two RBI and two runs scored in June. The slump hasn't cut into his playing time, though, so AL-only managers can't cut ties with him just yet.
Jun 18 - 12:41 AM

Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

The hits were his first in six games, as he'd been 0-for-21 in the five games prior to Sunday. He hasn't seen his playing time dip much as a result of his struggles, but with Alejandro De Aza finally pulling out of his funk Viciedo could lose some at-bats if he doesn't quickly regain his early form. Perhaps Sunday was a sign of better times to come for Viciedo.
Jun 8 - 8:39 PM

Dayan Viciedo went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in a win over the Indians on Monday.

The home run was his fifth of the season. Viciedo is now batting .284/.340/.459 through 50 games this season. The improved patience has been nice to see.
May 26 - 5:42 PM

Dayan Viciedo singled and launched a go-ahead, three-run homer in the ninth inning of Sunday's comeback win over the Indians.

John Axford walked two of the first three batters he faced while trying to protect a two-run lead, then Viciedo smoked a line drive over the right-field wall. Viciedo entered the game in a 2-for-17 slide at the plate, but Sunday's two-hit effort pushes his batting line back up to .330/.393/.520 to go along with two homers and 12 RBI.
May 4 - 4:21 PM

Dayan Viciedo stayed red hot on Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a triple, a double and two runs scored.

Viciedo is 14-for-24 with six extra-base hits in his last six games. He probably won't keep this up for much longer, but the White Sox might decide to move him into the cleanup spot anyway.
Apr 24 - 4:57 PM

Dayan Viciedo reached base in all five trips to the plate on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough as the White Sox lost against the Tigers.

Viciedo singled thrice, doubled, and drew a walk in the effort. He has been on fire lately, with three multi-hit games out of his last four outings. Viciedo now carries a .361/.412/.525 slash line in 68 plate appearances, a welcome sight for the White Sox, who lost Avisail Garcia to left shoulder surgery recently.
Apr 22 - 11:47 PM

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.
