Dayan Viciedo exited yesterday’s game with an oblique strain, but for now at least the White Sox left fielder is hoping to stay off the disabled list.

Viciedo suffered the injury on a swing-and-miss, falling to his knees afterward and leaving with the trainer. “When I swung, I was pretty bad,” Viciedo told Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com. “It feels a little better now. When I breathe hard, I feel it. But I don’t think it’s that bad.”

Oblique injuries tend to linger a whole lot longer than players initially think, so at the very least Viciedo is unlikely to play this weekend.

    Well that’s not going to work. Using an oblique injury is going to make it much more likely he goes on the DL than if he just plays it cool.

    The Blue Jays broadcast team showed a video of his previous at bat. He appeared to be developing a problem then. Certainly, he was in a lot of pain in his final at bat. He could be gone for a month despite his desire to avoid the DL.
