Viciedo a late scratch from Saturday's lineup

CHICAGO -- For the second time in three games, Dayan Viciedo was a late scratch from the starting lineup with a sore left thumb.

Viciedo was replaced Saturday by Blake Tekotte, who hit his first career home run in Friday's night game. Viciedo hurt his thumb diving for Robinson Cano's first-inning single Monday and left in the bottom of the inning. He missed Tuesday's game, was scratched again in Friday's day game and finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the second contest.

"Batting, hitting wise, it doesn't bother me that much," said Viciedo through translator and White Sox director of public relations Lou Hernandez, speaking in between games on Friday. "In fact, I feel fine. It's when I go to catch a ball, gripping the glove, there's some pain there. Just getting better."
