RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Three years after signing a major league contract with the White Sox out of Cuba, Viciedo finally received a full season's worth of major league at-bats. The fact that he hit 25 home runs may have been a pleasant surprise to some, but his 28 walks in 543 plate appearances should have been a surprise to no one. It can be easy to forget that Viciedo will only turn 24 during spring training, so there remains room for his power to grow. He should open 2013 as the White Sox's starting left fielder, and the sixth or seventh spot in the lineup will be calling his name.

2012

Viciedo received his first batch of regular playing time in his career in 2011, as he slid into a near-everyday outfield role when Carlos Quentin went down with injury in late August. He only hit one home run in those 102 at-bats, but he showed a more mature approach at the plate by actually taking a walk every once in a while. He experienced his best minor league effort prior to the recall, slashing .296/.364/.491 with 20 home runs in 452 at-bats. That power should develop as Viciedo ages, and his prospects for major league success should increase if the plate discipline remains. Following the White Sox's decision to trade Quentin to San Diego, Viciedo heads into the season as the team's everyday right fielder.

2011

The kid can hit, but he can't walk. Viciedo received 106 major plate appearances in 2010 - he had an extra-base hit in 13 of those and walked just twice. He also had 20 home runs in 363 plate appearances for Triple-A Charlotte, which is where he could start the 2011 season with Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn now in the fold. Viciedo should be up with the big club again at some point this season, but he will need an injury to one of the White Sox's corner infielders to see any playing time.

2010

Viciedo, the White Soxís newest Cuban project, was supposed to challenge Josh Fields for the teamís starting third-base job in spring training. He didnít. A power prodigy, Viciedo was supposed to slug his way up the minor league system. He stayed at Double-A Birmingham for the entire summer and only hit 12 home runs and 20 doubles in 540 plate appearances. Some in Chicago say Brent Morel now sits higher on the teamís organizational depth chart at third base. Of course, Viciedo probably would have moved to first base anyway before hitting the majors. The ETA depends on how quickly the power comes, and he probably needs at least a full season at Triple-A.

2009

Viciedo, a 19-year old Cuban defector, signed a four-year deal with the White Sox in December. He's expected to compete for the third base job with Wilson Betemit and Josh Fields. Viciedo first burst upon the Cuban professional baseball scene as a 15-year old, but he's had very little experience in international play, and after hitting for high average early on, regressed in his last couple of years. There are concerns about his weight (he showed up to his first MLB workout at 262 lbs.) and ability to stick at third base. While the age-to-level numbers look good, be careful not to compare his immediate potential to that of Alexei Ramirez. Viciedo still needs more polish, and chances are he'll spend much of 2009 in the minors.
