White Sox News: Reds Interested In Former Chicago OF Dayan Viciedo

The Cincinnati Reds are showing interest in soon-to-be former Chicago White Sox outfielder and Dayan Viciedo, per John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer:

The Chicago White Sox requested release waivers for Viciedo on Wednesday after they had designated him for assignment just a week earlier. While the 25-year-old once again flashed his power in 2014 with 21 home runs, he posted a less than stellar .231/.281/.405 slash line in 563 plate appearances for the Sox.

Coupled with his high strikeout rate and accompanying lack of progression from a plate discipline standpoint, Viciedo's negatives outweighed the positives for a retooling Chicago White Sox management team.

However, the Reds are in need of power from the right side (as are many teams), so don't be surprised if they make a play to take over Viciedo's final two years of team control.
