Found August 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Chicago White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Saturday's game against the New York Yankees with a sore left thumb. It was the second time in the last three games that Viciedo has been out of the White Sox lineup. As reported by Scott Merkin of, Viciedo hurt his thumb diving for Robinson Cano's first-inning single Monday and left in the bottom of the inning.

"Batting, hitting wise, it doesn't bother me that much. In fact, I feel fine. It's when I go to catch a ball, gripping the glove, there's some pain there. Just getting better."  Viciedo is in his fourth Major League season, all with the White Sox. Last year he batted .255 with 25 home runs in 147 games.  So far this season, he is batting .244 with 9 home runs and 32 rbi's in 90 games.  He has 40 career home runs and 129 rbi's in 304 games.
