White Sox rumors: Dayan Viciedo not concerned about extension

USA TODAY Sports

White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo is not currently concerned about negotiating a long-term contract extension with the team.

Following the recent flurry of lucrative deals signed by young players, Chicago White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo is not concerned about negotiating a long-term contract extension with the team, according to Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune.

Elvis Andrus -- who shares agent Scott Boras with Viciedo -- recently signed a long-term extension with the Texas Rangers. While Viciedo is happy for Andrus, he said that he's leaving "the business part of it to my agent." He added that he has "a lot of trust in Scott."

Viciedo signed a four-year, $10 million contract to join the White Sox out of Cuba prior to the 2009 season. At this point, the 24-year-old won't be eligible for free agency until 2018, but he could become an arbitration-eligible player as soon as 2014 if he reaches Super Two status.

While Viciedo appreciates the security that comes with a multi-year contract, he is now focused on working and improving his game. If an opportunity arises in the future to become locked up for several years he could consider it, but if not he will continue "working hard and trying to get my job done."

Over four seasons with the White Sox, Viciedo owns a career batting line of .263/.307/.439.
