White Sox Avoid Arbitration With Dayan Viciedo

The White Sox have avoided arbitration with left fielder Dayan Viciedo by signing him to a one-year deal worth $2.8MM, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post (on Twitter). MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projected that the Scott Boras client would earn exactly $2.8MM via arbitration.

Viciedo saw his power drop substantially in 2013 -- his age-24 season. After clubbing 25 homers and posting a strong .188 isolated power mark (slugging percentage minus batting average) in 2012, Viciedo's homer total fell to 14, and his ISO dropped to .161. Overall, he batted .265/.304/.426 in 473 plate appearances with the Sox.

The White Sox control Viciedo through the 2017 season, meaning he will be arbitration eligible three more times as a Super Two player. The arbitration process will continue to reward his power totals, meaning he'll need to show some improved on-base skills and/or improved defense in order to avoid becoming a non-tender candidate in the future.
