White Sox activate Dayan Viciedo from disabled list

Jason Miller

The Chicago left fielder should resume starting in left field immediately as the White Sox sent Jordan Danks to Triple-A to free up a roster spot.

The Chicago White Sox activated Dayan Viciedo from the disabled list on Friday. He was placed on the DL April 20 after suffering a strained right oblique on the 18th against the Toronto Blue Jays.

To make room for Viciedo on the roster, Chicago optioned Jordan Danks back to Triple-A Charlotte, according to a press release from the White Sox.

Viciedo, 24, hit .229 with a .646 OPS in 13 games this season before his injury. He became the White Sox starting left fielder in 2012 and hit 25 home runs that year with a .300 OBP. When the injury first occurred, the team was hopeful that he would not need to be placed on the DL.

Danks, 26, started four games for the White Sox from April 20-27, but collected just one hit and did not receive another plate appearance until May 6. Over 18 total plate appearances, Danks hit .200/.333/.400.

Viciedo should take his spot in left field starting immediately.
