Yankees Need to get Dayan Viciedo

The Chicago White Sox just designated outfielder Dayan Viciedo for assignment, to make room for Gordon Beckham, who they just signed.

Yankees need a right-handed power bat. Viciedo was someone I mentioned for them, in the middle of last season. He’s only 25-years old; he hit 21 homeruns this past season, with 81 RBIs. Viciedo has hit 25 homeruns in 2012.

That age and that type of power, is always needed. As a hitter in the MLB, all it matters is the age and power numbers. Viciedo has that. 25-years old and hitting 20-homeruns? That’s a buy.

With an aging Carlos Beltran and an always nicked up Brett Gardner, Yankees could use someone like Viciedo.

And again, Yankees desperately need another right-handed power bat, after trading Martin Prado.
