A’s sign former White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo

Dayan Viciedo has been out of work since being released by the White Sox in February and the Blue Jays in March, but Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports that the 26-year-old outfielder has signed a minor-league deal with the A’s.

Viciedo has 25-homer power, but his plate discipline and defense are awful and his overall production has been mediocre at best with a .254 batting average and .722 OPS in 483 career games.

He has good career numbers versus left-handed pitching, so if Viciedo puts together a good stretch at Triple-A the A’s could find a role for him as a platoon player.
