Grab Some Bench:
As was announced Friday afternoon, Dayan Viciedo and the White Sox feel his rehab assignment with the AAA Charlotte Knights is complete, as they've reinstated "Tank" from the 15-day disabled list.
Though the White Sox haven't been able to break through and find any sort of consistently positive play, they have consistently gotten good pitching performances, so hopefully Viciedo's return can spark the offense to perform like we know they can.
So far in 2013, Viciedo has hit .229 through 48 at-bats with two home runs. On top of those under whelming numbers, he's also struck out 16 times while not walking once. Those numbers will all need to change drastically or else he could actually serve as a detriment starting in place of Dewayne Wise.
But given how hot the Tank can get, as we've seen multiple times throughout his career, paired with how anemic the team's offense has been, hopes from many are sky-high.
To make room for Viciedo on the 25-man roster, the team has sent down OF Jordan Danks, as Wise will now handle the backup outfielder duties by himself once again.
Danks only got 15 at-bats in his most recent stint with the big league club while only recording three hits (.200). He did, however, hit his second career game-winning home run just last week in Kansas City.
For you big Jordan Danks fans out there, don't fret ... we'll see him again, and probably sooner rather than later.

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.

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.
The middle infielder, who many believe cracked under the pressure that Tony LaRussa placed on him while they were both in uniform for the Cardinals, found himself on the outside looking...
For a second straight game, the White Sox' offense was sufficient. I know ... unbelievable! But on Friday night, for once, the pitching just wasn't good enough as the Sox dropped the opener of the weekend series to the Angels, 7-5.
The game started off well once again for the south siders, as Alejandro De Aza's power surge continued. He led off the bottom of...

The White Sox return to Chicago for a brief three game home stand against the Angels over the weekend. The Sox just concluded a 4-4 road trip that with a few breaks could have been a 6-2 road trip.
The Angels just lost two out of three to the lowly Astros in Houston and have dropped five of their last seven games and are 12-22 on the season, nine games back of the division...
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...
