Ozzie Guillen thinks Dayan Viciedo isn’t ready

Here’s Ozzie:

“I don’t think Viciedo is ready. That’s my opinion,” said Guillen of the 21-year-old Cuban. “To play in the big leagues? You see a good couple of at-bats here and there, but to get a good 500 at-bats, I would think about it.

“He’s still far away from being here, a year away or maybe two years away. I don’t know how far away. Right now, I don’t think he can perform every day. We have to wait and see in Spring Training how mature he is and how he comes back. It’s good for him to taste a little bit of the big league level and how people do stuff here.”
