In today’s column for the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo writes that the Twins have interest in White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza. 1500 ESPN’s Darren Wolfson reported on Friday that some in the Twins’ front office are fans of De Aza’s.

Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago has the inside word: Although the White Sox are not shopping outfielder Dayan Viciedo, they are listening to other clubs about their interest in the Cuban power hitter.

Dayan Viciedo and the White Sox have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Viciedo had a disappointing second full season, hitting .265 with 14 homers and a .731 OPS that put him well below average for corner outfielders, especially when combined with…

There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…

Orioles 4, Rays 2: Chris Davis homers again. Number 46 on the year. He’s four short of the all-time Orioles record. He tied Rafael Palmiero for the most home homers in Orioles history with 25. Tommy Hunter got the save, as it does appear that Buck Showalter is gonna go with the hot hand now.…

That’s the word from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The White Sox are open to parting with younger regulars like Alex Rios, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Gordon Beckham and they’d certainly be willing to move Adam Dunn and John Danks. But ace Chris Sale is unavailable, as is 10-and-5 guy Paul Konerko. Heyman doesn’t indicate whether…

Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

Heading into the eighth inning of last night’s White Sox-Angels game Jeff Keppinger had yet to draw a walk in 140 plate appearances this season. Angels reliever Michael Kohn was struggling to throw strikes, walking Conor Gillaspie and Dayan Viciedo back-to-back to load the bases with two outs for Keppinger, who came into the game…

Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

Chicago activated Dayan Viciedo from the disabled list after the left fielder missed three weeks with a strained oblique muscle. As usual with oblique injuries, Viciedo initially hoped to avoid the DL altogether and ended up missing more than the minimum 15 days once he was shut down. He played four games on a minor-league…

On the disabled list with an oblique injury, White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo will begin a minor-league rehab assignment today at Triple-A. Viciedo is already eligible to come off the DL, but manager Robin Ventura told Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com that Viciedo is expected to spend 4-5 days on the rehab stint. Viciedo was…

After Dayan Viciedo left Thursday’s game with a strained left oblique, he was hoping to avoid an extended absence. However, the White Sox announced this morning that Viciedo has been placed on the 15-day disabled list while Blake Tekotte has been recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. Oblique injuries can be particularly tricky, so it’s understandable that…

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…

Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals. Santana made his Royals debut today and allowed three homers in six innings, as Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo, and Tyler Flowers all took him…
