White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

While nothing's official yet, the White Sox are considering moving Dayan Viciedo to left field -- which would be his third position in as many years -- to accommodate Alex Rios, who appears to have been bumped off center field by Alejandro De Aza. Rios has a good defensive track record in right and the goal would likely to be keep him as comfortable in the field (as opposed to moving him to left) as possible to aid an offensive rebound. The implications of this -- Dayan Viciedo's future role -- are about as far-reaching as any spring training storyline, so keep an eye on this one.

Gavin Floyd says he can win 20 games. Given his stuff he can, but as Don Cooper points out he'll need the offensive backing to reach that number.

Adam Dunn hasn't really let on to much about 2011, but one of his teammates said his struggles at the plate did affect him in private.

The White Sox have finished dead last in the American League in home runs hit by lefties over the last three years. Chris Kamka has some analysis on that and more on the void of left-handed producers the Sox have seen recently.

Around the division: Kansas City locked up catcher Salvador Perez through 2019 in what looks like a pretty favorable contract, Buck O'Neil was inducted in the Hall of Famous Missourians in Jefferson City, Manny Acta ran down his early projected lineup and Detroit may still be looking for a starter.
