MLB Injury News:
The Chicago White Sox have activated left fielder Dayan Viciedo from the 15 day DL. MLB.com reported the news on Friday afternoon, with Jordan Danks heading down to Triple-A Charlotte to make way for Viciedo.
Viciedo started an assignment at Charlotte earlier this week as the final part of his rehabilitation from the oblique injury he suffered when swinging at a pitch on April 18. As planned, he played four games in the minors this week and should be ready to slot straight back in to the Pale Hose lineup tonight when they play the Los Angeles Angels at Wrigley Field.
As well as the demotion for Danks, Viciedo's return is likely to hamper the playing time of Dewayne Wise, who has been playing center field in Viciedo's absence, with Alejandro de Aza in left. The White Sox' standard outfield configuration for the first three weeks of the season saw Viciedo in left, de Aza in center and Alex Rios in right.
Chicago could do with a hot bat in the lineup: their team OPS+ of 73 is second worst in all of baseball, ahead of only the Miami Marlins. Plate discipline has been a particular issue: not only do they have the third-highest strikeout rate in the league (23.7%), their .279 team on-base percentage is last in baseball, the side having taken just 72 walks all season with a horrendous 6.2% walk rate.

Truth be told, I don’t know all that much about Chris Cornell. Were I in charge of a massive Chris Cornell museum, I’d constantly be thinking to myself, “I don’t know how this happened.” But I know a few years ago, Cornell went solo and released an album that was a complete departure from his previous music. It sold, but people didn’t really like it that much, and before...
There are many hitters in baseball who people would call “all or nothing” type hitters, and one of the first players that come to mind when that statement is made, is Adam Dunn. Dunn is a prime example of one of the baseball intricacies known as the “Three True Outcomes,” which consist of either a walk, strikeout, or home run – basically, plays not involving the defense...
St. Louis Cardinal fans are seemingly obsessed over former players. Brendan Ryan, Rick Ankiel and Lance Berkman have all been on fans’ minds throughout the season.
Tyler Greene? Not so much.

Chicago baseball fans are in for a disappointing summer.
Being a lifelong Chicago suburbs resident, I can only say that I will be visiting Great America a lot this summer. I can only pray the Hawks and Bulls make deep runs into the summer because the 2 baseball teams are horrendous. My favorite team the White Sox are even harder to watch than the Cubs.
Everyone knew the Cubs...
