Dayan Viciedo LF/RF.. CWS 12 Days

Viciedo is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays.

Michael Taylor will take over in left field Friday, as Viciedo sits following five consecutive starts. The 25-year-old Viciedo has hit four home runs so far this month to bring his total on the season to 21, marking the second time in three years he's hit 20-plus homers.

Viciedo is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Viciedo should be in there to face lefty Tommy Milone in Game 2, though he is just 1-for-10 in his career against Milone. Jordan Danks will man left field in Game 1.

Viciedo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Oakland.

Viciedo was slotted into the every day starter role after the White Sox traded Alejandro De Aza, but this is the second time this week lefty Jordan Danks will fill in at left field against a right-hander. He has started against righties so it doesn't appear to be a platoon situation, but the team might elected to go with Danks some games against right-handed starters.

Viciedo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians.

Viciedo tallied seven hits over the last five games he played, but he will sit out Saturday so that the White Sox can get another left-handed hitter -- Jordan Danks -- in the lineup against Indians ace righty Corey Kluber.

Viciedo should be ticketed for a return to near-everyday duties in the outfield following Saturday's trade of Alejandro De Aza to the Orioles.

The return of Avisail Garcia from the disabled list a few weeks ago forced Viciedo into a timeshare in left field with De Aza, but the trade of the latter presents an opening for Viciedo to claim the role back for himself. The 25-year-old Viciedo has frustrated the team's brass with his lack of on-base skills (.277 OBP over 480 plate appearances), but his above-average pop will continue to keep him on the radar in deeper mixed leagues.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Viciedo will likely platoon in left field with Alejandro De Aza with the return of Avisail Garcia, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

As the right-handed hitting member of a platoon arrangement, Viciedo will fall on the smaller side of the playing time divide if the White Sox stick strictly to matchups. To this point, Viciedo's 2014 numbers against lefties (.733 OPS) are only marginally better than what he's delivered against righties (.677).

Viciedo (head) is in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays, Chuck Garfien of CSN Chicago reports.

Viciedo left Friday's contest due to dizziness, which was seemingly a minor concern. Despite the activation of Avisail Garcia from the DL, Viciedo is taking on left field and batting fifth in the order.

Viciedo was removed from Friday's game with dizziness, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Prior to his departure, Viciedo marched in the White Sox's hit parade on Friday night, finishing 2-for-3 with a run scored and a pair of RBI. For now, he's considered day-to-day.

Viciedo out of the lineup Tuesday.

He has been Chicago's everyday left fielder for much of the season, and will get a rare day off Tuesday, with Alejandro De Aza sliding over to patrol left.

Viciedo hit his 16th homer of the season on Friday against the Mariners, as he went 1-for-4 with a run scored and one RBI.

The home run by Viciedo was the only run that the White Sox could provide for starter Jose Quintana. Viciedo (.239/.285/.412) remains a good source of power but his inconsistencies with the bat and low batting average in general keep him from taking the next step as a player.
