Cleveland Indians have interest in outfielder Dayan Viciedo, per report

The Cleveland Indians are showing interest in former Chicago White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo, per a report from Paul Hoynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group. Viciedo, 26, was released earlier this month following an abysmal 2014 season in which he hit .231 with a .281 on-base percentage and actually had one more strikeout than he had hits (122-121). He’s also often thought of as one of the poorer defensive outfielders in the game. His lone positive quality is his power (21 home runs last season, 25 in 2012). He’ll hit for power given at-bats, but his poor average and defense cause...

McCovey Chronicles mailbag: Dayan Viciedo, Jake Peavy, and can the Giants win with a normal second baseman?

I also give away the ending of Avengers 2 in here, so be careful. Pitchers and catchers report in less than a week. There will be spring training games on the radio soon. This means one thing: a temporary reprieve from rosterbation season and stupid rumor season. Scram, both of you. But there are still faint death rattles to attend to! So we turn to the McCovey Chronicles mailbag. As always, send an email to mccoveychronicles@gmail.com. Do your best to keep the question short, as novellas take attention away from me, and we can't have that. 1. Dayan Viciedo was released by the White Sox...

Should the Rays claim Dayan Viciedo?

He's the ideal candidate for a DH platoon. He's also expensive for the short side of a DH platoon. Two days ago, the White Sox signed utility infielder Gordon Beckham, and designated outfielder Dayan Viciedo for assignment. That means that major league teams now have an opportunity to claim Viciedo. Whoever wins the claim then has to either work out a trade with the White Sox or receive him outright at his current salary of $4.4 million. Alternately, if no one submits a claim, Viciedo may either accept his assignment or opt out of his contract, in which case teams would be able to deal with...

White Sox sign Gordan Beckham; designate Dayan Viciedo for assignment

The White Sox add a familiar face to the bench and end one of the strangest offseason stories in a while. In a move that had been hoped for by Soxfest attendees, the White Sox have signed Gordon Beckham to a one-year, $2 million deal.  To make room for Beckham on the 40-man roster, the White Sox have designated outfielder Dayan Viciedo for assignment. During sessions this past weekend, Rick Hahn did mention that they were still looking to add a right-handed utility infielder.  Based on today's comments from Rick Hahn, Beckham does seem to be destined for a utility role. Adding Gordon...
