Chicago White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo began his minor league rehab assignment last night, joining the team's Triple-A affiliate, according to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago. Viciedo is expected to require four or five games in the minors before he's activated by the White Sox. He will play left field throughout his stay in Triple-A. White Sox manager Robin Ventura told of the team's patient approach when it came to Viciedo. The slugger has been dealing with an oblique injury, and the relative unknown nature of the ailment has Chicago treating it will kid gloves. "There's no signs it's going to happen, it just happens," Ventura said. "Hope everything cleared up, those things can last a long time. They're a little dangerous that you could lose him for a while." If players are rushed back from oblique injuries, they tend to be extremely likely to suffer a setback or aggravation. Rather than risk an even more extended stint on the DL, Chicago is hoping to get Viciedo all the way healthy before activating him. Prior to hitting the DL, Viciedo was hitting .229/.229/.417 with three doubles and two home runs over 48 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
