Viciedo scratched from Game 1 of twin bill

Viciedo scratched from Game 1 of twin bill

CHICAGO -- Dayan Viciedo was scratched from the starting lineup for Game 1 of Friday's split doubleheader with the Twins a little more than one hour before first pitch due to soreness in his left thumb. Viciedo missed Tuesday's game against the Yankees after leaving Monday's game in the first inning when he jammed his left thumb diving for a Robinson Cano single to left.

Jordan Danks took over in center field, with Alejandro De Aza moving from center to left.

This scratch of Viciedo meant Jordan and John Danks would be in a White Sox regular-season starting lineup for the first time. Jordan has appeared in the same box score in White Sox games that John has started, and the two started together in Spring Training and at Triple-A Charlotte on May 12, where Jordan had two hits and three RBIs and John earned the win over Pawtucket by allowing two runs over six innings.
