Merkin:

Dayan Viciedo was shut down for the remainder of the Arizona Fall League schedule with inflammation in his throwing elbow, the White Sox announced Monday. Brent Morel will replace Viciedo on the Peoria Javelinas roster, joining other White Sox Minor Leaguers in outfielder Jordan Danks, infielder C.J Retherford and pitchers Justin Cassel, Matt Long and Jacob Rasner. … With the designated hitter spot vacant for the White Sox and the team talking about using a rotation of players to fill that slot, Viciedo could find himself in play come Spring Training. But Viciedo could also benefit from another year in the Minors, holding the possibility that he could move positions, with Gordon Beckham entrenched at third base. …

Here are Brent Morel’s stats. Merkin mentioned the Viciedo DH possibility last week too.

AFL Day 13

No game today so let’s see how Sox prospects are doing so far:

Jordan Danks: .424/.513/.697/1.210 with 3 Ks and 5 BBs in 33 ABs
C.J. Retherford: .346/.414/.615/1.029 with 2 Ks and 2 BBs in 26 ABs
Dayan Viciedo: .333/.350/.556/.906 with 6 Ks and 1 BB in 18 ABs

In this small sample size Danks is hitting the cover of the ball and has cut down the Ks. Viciedo isn’t doing so well (remember, the AFL is a hitters league) and his plate discipline is awful. Retheford is somewhee in the middle.

You can see how all the Sox prospects are doing in their Winter Ball leagues here:

Peoria Javelinas vs. Mesa Solar Sox: Boxscore, Gameday. Dayan Viciedo is playing 3B. C.J. Retherford is playing DH. Weather: 88 degrees, sunny.

BTW, here’s Jonathan Mayo:

Sergio Santos, White Sox: Like Lo, he’s gone four innings without allowing a run. He has yielded five hits, but hasn’t walked anyone and has struck out four. Plus, it’s a cool story since Santos played in the Fall League a few years back as a shortstop.

And C.J. Retherford is twitting @ CJRetherfordAFL.

UPDATE: Peoria won 8-1:

Dayan Viciedo: 1-5, 2 RBI, 2 K, .333 AVG
C.J. Retherford: 0-2, 1 BB, .364 AVG

AFL starts [UPDATE]

Filed under: Chicago White Sox,MiLB — The Wizard @ October 13, 2009 1:04 pm
Tags: , ,

In their first game, the Peoria Javelinas, this year’s Sox team, take on the Surprise Rafters. I see Dayan Viciedo at 3B in the lineups. Boxscore. Gameday. Weather: 75 degrees, sunny.

BTW, RHP Sergio Santos has replaced RHP Henry Mabee on the Peoria Javelinas roster.

UPDATE: Viciedo went 0-3 with an RBI (sacrifice fly) and 1 K. Santos pitched 2  scoreless innings (3 H, 0 R, 1 K, 0 BB).  Gameday shows most of his fastballs at 95-96 MPH (he threw one at 96 and one at 97 too).

UPDATE #1: Tom Carkeek says Viciedo “look[ed] solid at third” but “did nothing” after his warning track sacrifice fly in his 1st at-bat.

Look for an ‘AFL JR’ in 2010

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ August 25, 2009 7:03 pm

MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo says to look for a junior AFL in 2010. With the closing of the Hawaiian Winter Baseball league after the 2008 season there was thought of creating a junior AFL for lower-level prospects. That didn’t happen, but each team is allowed to send 2 A-ball prospects to the AFL this year. The AFL Jr. should be an A-ball prospects league, while the AFL would remain a AA-ball and AAA-ball prospects league.

Jordan Danks and Dayan Viciedo highlight 2009′s Sox AFL players

This year’s Sox team are the Peoria Javelinas. The Full Roster is here. Besides Jordan Danks and Dayan Viciedo the other Sox participants are: Justin Cassel, Johnnie Lowe, Henry Mabee, Jacob Rasner, and C.J. Retherford.

No Tyler Flowers or Dan Hudson. :-(

BTW, Lowe and Rasner are featured in this week’s FutureSox ‘Hot and Cold’ column.
