Cuban native Dayan Viciedo, the big third baseman/first baseman, hit just .182 in 10 spring games and will be spending his first summer at Charlotte, so the media were curious what manager Ozzie Guillen expected of him.
“To get the (bleep) out of here quickly as he can,” Guillen said. “I think he has a great chance to be a big league player and that’s our expectation. He will dictate to us how fast he’s going to be in the big leagues.
“He has two choices: Buy a house here in Charlotte or get his stuff together and come to the big leagues.”
Viciedo hit .280 at AA Birmingham last season and is signed through 2012.
