CHICAGO -- Left fielder Dayan Viciedo returns to the Chicago White Sox lineup on Sunday after sitting out Saturday as a precautionary measure after experiencing tightness in both hamstrings on Friday night.
Meanwhile, it doesn’t look like third baseman Brent Morel will return to the club anytime soon after he re-aggravated a lower back injury on Thursday during a rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

If there has to be surgery, just do it. But I think at this point they’ve done a lot of things you can do without that. So send him to somebody who can specifically find out what it is.”
