Viciedo’s Thumb Could Be Holding Up Quentin Trade

CHICAGO (CBS) For over a month, reports have surfaced that the White Sox want to bring up Dayan Viciedo from Triple-A, they just don’t have anywhere to put him on the roster.

Now it appears they may have an opening, but Viciedo might not be ready.

According to’s Ken Rosenthal, the White Sox and Braves are working on a deal involving Carlos Quentin, but a major hold up is the condition of Viciedo’s thumb, which he injured last week. If Quentin was sent to Atlanta, Viciedo would be the obvious replacement for Quentin in right field.

Viciedo is hitting .307 with 16 home runs and 65 RBIs in Charlotte this season, but hasn’t played since July 23 because of the thumb injury. He remains on the team’s active roster.

    Trading Quentin now is signaling a white flag by the sox. You have no other threat in the lineup after Konerko and if you take Quentin out you make a huge additional hole in the line up

    Trade Jackson for two middle of the road relievers, then trade Quentin for more young arms..Why? So we can go back to a six man rotation?..We cant hit our way out of a paper bag, and need someone who can make something happen offensively…. Id say they are throwing in the towel…Boy did I waste alot of time on this team this season…We’ve got a rare few players that we can build a team around, and Quentin is one of them..or rather was……Thanks for nothing……..
