Alejandro De Aza LF/CF CWS 25 Days

De Aza (knee) isn't in the lineup Tuesday versus the Rangers, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Removed from Monday's game after fouling a ball off his left knee, De Aza should be considered day-to-day. In his place, Dayan Viciedo is covering left field and batting fifth in the order.

De Aza exited Monday's game after fouling a ball off his left knee in the sixth inning, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

De Aza was replaced in the game by Moises Sierra. It's not clear how long De Aza will be out, but he was diagnosed with only a bruise, so he should not miss much time if he misses any at all.

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 on Wednesday and is in a 2-for-28 slump.

De Aza homered twice on Opening Day and three times in opening series against the Twins, but he has just one homer since, that coming back on April 28. He's struggled to hit for average all along, and he's currently at .179 for the season. The White Sox don't have much in the way of outfield alternatives, so they'll keep running him out there against righties for now. He should snap out of it at some point.

Alejandro De Aza hit his fourth homer of the year Monday in the win over the Rays.

It was his fourth homer of the year, but his first in 25 days; the previous three all came in the season-opening series against the Twins. De Aza has struggled mightily since those first few days, and if not for Avisail Garcia's injury, he'd probably find himself on the bench most of the time right now. As is, he'll continue to start in left field against most righties.

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 with a walk as the White Sox defeated the Red Sox on Tuesday.

De Aza walked and was caught stealing leading off the bottom of the ninth inning, but the White Sox walked off winners anyway. After a white-hot spring, De Aza has been cold to start the season, hitting just .167 with the conclusion of Tuesday's action. The caught stealing was only his first attempted steal of the season, after swiping 20 bags last year.

Alejandro De Aza popped his third homer in three games Thursday against the Twins.

The White Sox thought they were picking De Aza's on-base percentage and defense over Dayan Viciedo's power in left field to start the season. Imagine their surprise that De Aza has three homers already. He'll start against right-handers for the foreseeable future.

Alejandro De Aza clubbed a pair of home runs in a 5-3 win over the Twins on Opening Day.

De Aza smacked a two-run shot in the second inning and later added a solo homer in the sixth. This was the first multi-homer game of his career. De Aza is set to share playing time with Dayan Viciedo in left field, but a shot start could give him the edge. The good news is that he should get more playing time than Viciedo even if the White Sox go with a straight platoon.

Alejandro De Aza doubled and homered in his only two at-bats as the White Sox fell to the Cubs 4-3 on Thursday.

De Aza went back-to-back with Adam Dunn in the ninth inning against Wesley Wright, a last-ditch effort to bring the White Sox back into the game. The blast was De Aza's second of the spring and he is now hitting .383. He has certainly played his way into consideration for more playing time, and may take some away from Dayan Viciedo in left field.

Alejandro De Aza had another nice day at the plate on Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored as the White Sox and Rockies played to a 5-5 draw.

De Aza continues to battle Dayan Viciedo for the team's starting job in left field, and has stated his case strongly by slashing .410/.425/.564 in Cactus League play. If he does receive everyday at-bats, his combination of power and speed give him plenty of mixed league value.

Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-3 with his first home run of the spring against the Giants on Saturday.

De Aza's two-hit day raised his spring average to .400. The 29-year-old is in a fight for his life with Dayan Viciedo for a starting spot in the White Sox outfield. If the team opts to go in another direction, De Aza will likely draw interest on the trade market.
