Carlos Quentin remains on the active roster despite a sprained left shoulder, but he hasn’t played since Saturday and Ozzie Guillen said last night that he’s unlikely to be back in the lineup before next week.

Dayan Viciedo is waiting in the wings at Triple-A as a potential fill-in for Quentin, but Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune notes that the White Sox are hoping Quentin can avoid the disabled list because that would rule him out for a crucial series against the division-leading Tigers next week.

Viciedo was sidelined recently by a hand injury of his own, but he’s healthy again and hitting .298 with 19 homers and an .852 OPS in 117 games at Triple-A. Quentin, who’s battled various injuries throughout his career, has hit .255 with 24 homers and an .842 OPS in 117 games for the White Sox.

    The fact that Viciedo has played 117 games at Charlotte speaks to some questionable decision making on the South Side. Unless Kenny Williams gets some sort of sick pleasure out of watching Adam Dunn repeatedly flail away.
