Ventura considers Viciedo in left field, Rios in right
GLENDALE, Ariz. — White Sox manager Robin Ventura is open to the possibility of yet another move for Dayan Viciedo, perhaps to left field.
Viciedo came up as a corner infielder and made a smooth transition to right field last spring to make room for Brent Morel at third base.
With Alejandro De Aza looking like the best center fielder, Alex Rios was thought to be facing a move to left. But Rios is inexperienced in left and Ventura sees Viciedo handling the move without much difficulty.
“He’s a good athlete,” Ventura said Monday.
“Alex had his best years in right.”
Ventura also said Adam Dunn might play more first base than he did last season, to give Paul Konerko some rest.
