SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Both Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro De Aza picked up singles during the White Sox 9-7 victory over the Rangers Sunday, with Viciedo getting the start in left field.

Manager Robin Ventura still answered with a quick "No" when asked if he planned to name a starter in left field any time soon during Spring Training.

"They are just going to play and we will figure it out once we get towards the end," said Ventura of left field. "They both are capable of playing. It's not like they both aren't good players. But it's a bit crowded and we'll see how it goes."

The right-handed hitting Viciedo has a .322 career average against southpaws and a .357 on-base percentage. The left-handed hitting De Aza is a .273 hitting against righties but also a .276 hitter vs. lefties.
