Blue Jays boost outfield depth, sign Dayan Viciedo

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have boosted their outfield depth, signing Dayan Viciedo to a minor league contract.

The Blue Jays announced the deal Sunday.

A few days earlier, Toronto outfielder Michael Saunders tore cartilage in his knee when he stepped on a sprinkler while chasing a ball at training camp. Saunders had surgery and is expected to be out five to six weeks.

The 25-year-old Viciedo hit 21 home runs for the Chicago White Sox last season while batting .231 with 58 RBIs. He is known for his power, not his plate discipline or defense.
