Dayan Viciedo, who played for the White Sox from 2010-2014 before being dropped this offseason, has re-signed with the team on a minor-league contract.

Dating back to February he’s been released by the White Sox, Blue Jays, and A’s while hitting just .228 with one homer and a .617 OPS in 32 games at Triple-A.

Viciedo is still just 26 years old and has 25-homer power when playing at his best, but his bad defense and total lack of plate discipline makes him ill-suited for more than a part-time role. He’ll have to put together a good stretch in the minors to get another chance in Chicago.
