Dayan Viciedo nearing deal with Japanese team


Dayan Viciedo is near a deal with the Chunichi Dragons of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball league.

The soon to be 27-year-old spent all of the 2015 season at Triple-A split between multiple organizations compiling a .287/.348/.450 line with eight home runs in 276 plate appearances.

A few teams stateside may have been interested in giving Viciedo a minor league deal but none were going to give him the financial benefits he’d get in Japan.
