GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The right quadriceps strain that knocked Dayan Viciedo from Tuesday's game against the Reds kept the left fielder inactive Wednesday against the D-backs. But Viciedo is scheduled to return to the starting lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

"I feel good and I feel like maybe tomorrow I'll get a chance to play," Viciedo said through translator and White Sox coach Lino Diaz. "But I'm definitely not going to push it before I need to. It's nothing major. It's something I should be able to work through."

Viciedo described the injury as his muscle getting "constrained and hurt a little bit" right after he hit a triple. When Viciedo stood up at third base, that's when he felt the muscle strain.

"I went and got treatment," Viciedo said. "And I feel much better."
