Viciedo OK after taking painful pitch off elbow


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A Chris Heston pitch caught Dayan Viciedo in the left elbow area during a two-run White Sox sixth inning as part of Monday's 9-9 tie with the Giants, causing the left fielder pain but apparently not any sort of inactivity past exiting the Cactus League game.

"It hit me right on the muscle. It hurt, it really hurt, right by the bone," said Viciedo, through translator and White Sox director of public relations Lou Hernandez. "But I'm fine. It's not a problem."

Viciedo usually wears an elbow guard but didn't have it on for this at-bat.

"I got it a few days ago, but I haven't adjusted it to my elbow," Viciedo said. "I have to adjust to how I'm going to wear it."
