Be on the look out for these players to be called up June 1st or just after the arbitration clock gives teams 1 extra year. Brett Wallace should step into the Toronto 1b position as Lyle Overbay is hitting under .200.
Ozzie Guillen has started off the 2009 season the same way he started out 2008: by giving a rookie Cuban a great nickname. This year it is 19-year old phenom Dayan Viciedo, who has been dubbed The Cuban Pimp by Guillen.
Alexei Ramirez, Jose Contreras, and newcomer Dayan Viciedo are the White Sox Cuban Trifectors, and all three will be important players this season in the White Sox quest to defend their AL Central crown. Viciedo, the 19-year old newcomer that signed a 4-year contract in the offseason, will complete with Josh Fields for the 3B slot and reportedly has 35-40 homerun potential.
