CHICAGO – Outfielder Dayan Viciedo and the White Sox have agreed to a $2.8 million one-year contract and avoided arbitration.
Viciedo, 24, hit .265 with 14 homers and 56 RBIs last year, when he also made $2.8 million in his second full season with the club. He ranked third among AL outfielders with 12 assists.
Viciedo is a career .264 hitter with 45 home runs and 153 RBIs over four seasons with the White Sox.
The deal announced Monday leaves the White Sox with two remaining arbitration-eligible players: infielder Gordon Beckham and outfielder Alejandro De Aza.
