MLB Injury News:
After losing second baseman Gordon Beckham last week, the Chicago White Sox suffered a further blow on Thursday night when left fielder Dayan Viciedo left the game with an oblique injury.
Daryl van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Viciedo hurt his left oblique swinging at a pitch from Esmil Rogers during the 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Viciedo was quick to say that the injury was not that serious:
‘When I swung, I was pretty bad,’’ he said after the game. ‘‘It feels a little better now. When I breathe hard, I feel it. But I don’t think it’s that bad.’’
Viciedo will be re-evaluated on Friday to see if a DL trip is necessary. Sox manager Robin Ventura was clearly frustrated after the Sox 3-7 road trip and eager to get back to Chicago.
‘‘You just want to go home,’’ manager Robin Ventura said after the game. ‘‘I don’t care what the weather’s like or anything. It’s been a long, rough road trip. We’re ready to go home and hopefully turn it around.’’
The Chicago Cubs' Steve Clevenger was recently placed on the 60-day DL with a left oblique strain, also injured by swinging at a pitch. While Viciedo's injury may not be as serious, oblique injuries can linger if not allowed to heal properly and clubs are tending to be cautious in their treatment of such problems, demonstrated by the Atlanta Braves' approach to Freddie Freeman's recent oblique issue.
24-year-old Viciedo hit 25 home runs in 505 at-bats last season but posted an on-base percentage of .300 after striking out 120 times. The two bench options for the White Sox in the outfield are Jordan Danks, who was just promoted on Thursday, and Dewayne Wise, neither of whom are known for their offensive prowess. Lefty Jared Mitchell, currently with the Charlotte Knights in Triple-A, is probably next in line for a callup and impressed in spring training but is hitting just .132 on the season.

Though it took longer than we may have hoped, the White Sox finally pulled off their first comfortable victory of the season in which they didn't have to fight and scrap until the very end to get the W. But the recipe for success was nothing new: a lot of pitching and a dash of power.

The White Sox were unable to win the series against the Blue Jays, falling 3-1 today to earn a split against the team from north of the border.

Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham underwent
surgery to repair the fractured hamate bone in his left hand, according to Dan
Hayes of CSN Chicago.
Beckham's surgery went "splendidly", expected to be six weeks. John Danks threw 71 pitches over 6 IP. He starts again Saturday. #WhiteSox
