Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo is batting .333 with five home runs and 11 RBIs in his last 10 games.
Fantasy Tip: Viciedo is prone to prolonged slumps and stretches where he hits the cover off the ball. He's streaky. Now may be the time to ride him again just before the All-Star break.

Look for the Seattle Mariners to approach the Chicago White Sox about trades before the deadline. OFs Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo and SS Alexei Ramirez may be of interest to the Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Why the Mariners would want to muddy an already crowded outfield situation is a good question, but the team would make the postseason if the season ended today. That is a good reason to keep an eye on potential destinations for two of these three. Adam Dunn is the odd man out, as a low average and all-or-nothing approach at the plate make him a risky fantasy value.

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo entered the day Thursday, April 24, hitting an American League-best .354 with a .410 average in his last 10 games. Viciedo's on-base percentage of .403 has been especially impressive. Hitting coach Todd Steverson suggested that too many expectations were likely put on Viciedo when he initially arrived in the big leagues.
Fantasy Tip: Viciedo went 3-for-4 and fell a homer short of the cycle Thursday to stay hot. Improved plate discipline and pitch recognition are helping Viciedo in this hot streak. Remember that he's been a streaky hitter in the past, but consistent playing time and his new approach may help him take the next step.

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo has been more controlled at the plate and is chasing fewer offspeed pitches on the outer half of the plate. That has helped him get off to a .321 average in 2014, along with the fact that he's driving the ball the other way. He's drawn five walks in 53 at-bats this year, compared to 24 walks in 441 at-bats last season. Viciedo is 10-for-27 with five RBIs in seven games since becoming the everyday right fielder.
Fantasy Tip: Viciedo's poor pitch recognition and lack of plate discipline was the knock on him coming into this year. A more mature approach is the reason for his hot start. With regular playing time, he's a player that could break out, and his raw power plays very well in his home ballpark.
