The Chicago White Sox were concerned that Dayan Viciedo's thumb injury would keep him out for an extended stretch and perhaps require a stint on the disabled list. Fortunately for the White Sox, MRI results on the outfielder's thumb came back negative, and Chicago hopes to have Viciedo back in their lineup in the next day or two, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. Viciedo was back with the team yesterday, telling reporters that his thumb feels "a lot better," through a translator. He's been dealing with the injury since last Monday's contest against the New York Yankees when he jammed it while diving for a hit off the bat of Robinson Cano. He exited the game early, and wasn't in the White Sox' lineup on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The issue for Viciedo has been more on the defensive side of the game, as he's been unable to move his thumb to close his glove. Yesterday, the Cuban native was moving his tightly wrapped thumb with relative ease, according to Merkin. While he was showing some signs of improvement offensively of late, hitting .286 over his last 15 games, Viciedo has struggled at the plate for the most part this season. Over 340 plate appearances, the 24-year-old has hit .244/.288/.397 with 15 doubles and nine home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
