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 FOXSports.com’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.
