The Chicago White Sox have placed outfielder Dayan Viciedo on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, the team has announced. Viciedo suffered his injury earlier this week while swinging and missing at a pitch. He was in such pain, that he fell to one knee before ultimately being removed from the contest. After the game, he told reporters that it hurt when he breathed, but he didn’t expect the injury to require a trip to the DL. It turns out his prognosis wasn’t correct, as Chicago will give him at least two weeks to recover from his oblique injury. These ailments can be tricky, and if a player attempts to return too soon he could aggravate the injury and require an even longer period of time off. Prior to sustaining his injury, Viciedo was off to a nice start for the White Sox. The 24-year-old had hit .229 with two home runs and three doubles over 13 games this season. Chicago is likely to use a combination of Jordan Danks and Blake Tekotte – who was recalled from Triple-A to replace Viciedo on the White Sox roster – to replace Viciedo in the outfield.
