I first saw Viciedo when he played for Birmingham and came away mostly unimpressed. Still, you could see the raw talent there. I thought his best defensive position in the minors was first base. Now he plays LF in the majors to rave reviews. Yet he still won the game on Sunday with his glove as much as his bat. He made a strong throw to second to nail Smoak trying for a double. Andino got a ground rule double later in the inning. Viciedo will never be a high OBP guy or a GG fielder but he could be a valuable player for years to come and I for one am not ready to give up on him, and I'm not particularly optimistic by nature.
