Dayan Viciedo Looks Like A Future No. 3 Hitter To White Sox Great Frank Thomas

The Chicago White Sox have been competitive and feisty in their first few games of the 2012 MLB season, but everyone still has an eye on the future of the franchise. Outfielder Dayan Viciedo has gotten off to a nice start with a .364/.417/.545 line, and CSN-Chicago analyst and White Sox legend Frank Thomas thinks it's not just a flash in the pan. Anyone who has watched the ball jump off of the young Cuban's bat understands his power potential, but the issue in his early career has been with strikeouts and a lack of walks.

The good news is that Viciedo picked up his first walk of the season on Monday night against the Cleveland Indians and has only struck out twice in 12 plate appearances, so perhaps he's ready to turn the corner at age 23. Check out Bill Melton and Frank Thomas breaking down Dayan Viciedo's potential on CSN-Chicago:
