I live in Japan, and went to a Japanese spring training game yesterday between the Chunichi Dragons and the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. Imagine my surprise when Dayan Viciedo stepped up to the plate as the clean-up hitter for the Dragons! He was playing 1B.

I figured I'd look him up, and learned that Dayan has played for the Dragons for two seasons and was selected to the Japanese All-Star game during his first year (2016) in the league. Pretty cool!

He did, however, exhibit some long, loopy, off-balance swings while going 0-2 in the game I watched yesterday. I had to laugh. But hey, he had at least one respectable season for the White Sox, so figured I'd update you all on his current situation!
I'm heading to Japan next week (3/9) for two weeks. Will probably take in a game in Nagoya while I am there.
