Only one member of the Chicago White Sox shows up in the top 20 on ESPN's Player Rater over the past 30 days, and it's not first baseman Paul Konerko or hot left-handed pitcher Chris Sale.

It's outfielder Dayan Viciedo. Many of us figured Viciedo would hit for power, but he's doing so much of it in the past few weeks that it has fantasy owners adding him to their teams left and right. Viciedo entered Wednesday as the most added player in ESPN standard leagues, and I believe the power is for real, if not the rest of his offense, too.
