Latest Update Dayan Viciedo hits 17th home run Mon Aug, 31, 05:21 AM
Has big-time home-run power and the ability to drive in runs regularly. Is versatile enough to play any corner position. Boasts a very strong arm.
Flaws: : Needs a lot of work defensively, especially when he plays in the infield in the big leagues. Strikes out too much and generally lacks patience.
Viciedo is doing his best to bounce back from a terrible month of July (.202 BA) having now logged four home runs, eight RBI and eight runs scored through 37 August at-bats. He is now sporting a .237 average with 16 home runs and 46 RBI on the season and should only be on the radar for those in deep league formats if he is able to keep up the pace for a few more games.

Viciedo accounted for all the White Sox offense on Friday night, as he extended his hit streak to seven games. He is now slashing .239/.285/.412 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI through 415 at-bats, so best case scenario he remains a solid AL-only play unless desperate for home runs in other formats.

The streaky slugger went yard for the second consecutive game to extend his current hit streak to six games where he is hitting .318 (7-for-22) with three home runs and six RBI. If you have learned anything over Viciedo's young career it should be he is worth riding while he is out, but once he starts going cold bail on him as his streaks have a tendency to be prolonged.Analyst: Michael Pichan
