Anyone else in the system is still under contract too, should we just throw anything in the outfield then?
Either at any dollar amount is a better option than Viciedo for free. And I'm not even an Either fan. You're right, he is overpaid. But he's a useful piece and Viciedo is not. Hell, you could pickup Either to make things not so bad in the short term and trade him high if someone's desperate for an outfielder.
