SoxMachine’s Birmingham & Charlotte Minor League roundup

Dayan Viciedo is improving:

Viciedo’s numbers still aren’t impressive on the whole, but he’s making every necessary improvement right now.  Last month, it was all about the quality of his contact.  This time around, it’s his walks and strikeouts.  Check it out:

* April: 2 BB, 19 K
* May: 3 BB, 23 K
* June: 9 BB, 11 K

He also topped .400 in slugging for the first time in a month (.426), along with his career high in OBP (.342).  He’s still committing plenty of errors, but the Sox paid him to hit, and he’s following the correct curve right now.

BTW,  Jhonny Nunez was promoted to Charlotte.
