But he did put up .337 and 14 homers as a 16 year old in Cuba. I mean Cuban baseball is probably a higher level than AAA. If he was doing that at AAA, he'd be a lock to make the club in spring.


BaseballProspectus has his stats in a 'over there, over there, over there' column (along with Kawakami, Uehera and a couple others) in January, but it's subscriber content. He has a .285/.370/.450 career line. BP also considers Cuban baseball to be about the same as AA (not higher than AAA). And one issue with Viciedo is that his best season was the at age 16 and he regressed badly at 17 before having a decent season last year.

Ok makes sense. All I'm saying is that if he performs, whether it be in the spring or at AAA, he shouldn't be held back by his age. He's obviously far and away more developed than most if not all 19 year old prospects.

As far as how good Cuban baseball is I wont argue with BP, but still. If a 16 year old puts up .337 and 14 in AA, I'm pretty happy.

Mar. 4 - 6:05 pm et
Dayan Viciedo hit his second homer of the spring to give the White Sox their only two runs Wednesday against the A's.
The homer came off Jerome Williams. Viciedo also committed his error of the spring today. He appears raw enough defensively that the White Sox may not carry him even if he delivers six or seven homers this spring.


Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that third base prospect Dayan Viciedo could very well end up in the outfield if the White Sox decide to let Jermaine Dye walk after 2009.

I personally think he's going to be heir to Konerko at 1B as I think that'll eventually be his natural position. Not agile enough for 3B and not fast enough for the OF.
