WSC Birth Years: Dayan Viciedo

Card #59 - Dayan Viciedo

Born: March 10, 1989

After defecting from Cuba in early 2008, Dayan was declared a free agent and signed a four year contract with the White Sox on December 12, 2008. While some saw this as a risky investment, Dayan has improved at every level since joining the Sox.

On June 20, 2010, Viciedo made his MLB debut against the Washington Nationals, going 1 for 4, but hitting the ball with authority in his first three at-bats. In his first at-bat, Nyjer Morgan made a spectacular play to rob Dayan of a sure double. In his second at-bat, Viciedo hit a rocket single.

If Dayan continues to show discipline and power at the plate, it may prove difficult to send him back down to AAA. The future appears bright for this young slugger.

Great card. I don't know how you got half of that done. The Sox logo and name look great. Is is scary that you are almost to the 90's with the birth year cards? I am starting to feel old.

The worst part was the player name. It's really starting to get scary with the later birth years. It will get really frightening when the birth year of the player is younger than the blog itself. Luckily that's many years away, I hope!
