Dayan Viciedo is back in the White Sox organization.
The White Sox signed the Cuban slugger Saturday and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte. He’ll join the Knights in time for Saturday night’s game in Indianapolis.
Viciedo, 26, hit .254 with 66 home runs and 211 RBI in parts of five seasons with the White Sox from 2010 through 2014. The Sox released him in February.
Viciedo was then signed and released by the Blue Jays in March, and then signed by the A’s in June. He hit .221 with 13 runs, six doubles and two triples with Triple-A Nashville before being released by Oakland.
Viciedo joined the White Sox in 2008 after signing a four-year contract. He spent the entire 2009 season with Double-A Birmingham. He was promoted to Triple-A and then to the majors in 2010.
