2012 MLB Hot Stove: Dayan Viciedo Recruiting Yoenis Cespedes And Jorge Soler For White Sox

The Chicago White Sox are among the many clubs interested in Cuban baseball prospects Yoenis Cespedes and Jorge Soler, and White Sox 3B/OF and fellow Cuban Dayan Viciedo has taken it upon himself to put in a good word for the Sox.

"I have reached out to both camps and put in a good word and told them how great the organization is and how much of great fit it would be if they joined us," Viciedo said on a conference call in preparation for SoxFest starting Jan. 27.

Cespedes and Soler are in the Dominican Republic awaiting the go-ahead from Major League Baseball to sign with a team.

Alexei Ramirez -- Chicago's starting shortstop -- also is from Cuba.
