The White Sox placed left fielder Dayan Viciedo on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left oblique and recalled outfielder Blake Tekotte from AAA Charlotte.
Viciedo suffered the strain during his last at-bat on Thursday in Toronto. He is batting .229 but had shown signs of improving with seven hits in his previous 14 at-bats, including three doubles.
Tekotte, 25, was acquired by the Sox from San Diego in a trade for pitcher Brandon Kloess in November. He played 30 games for the Padres in 2011 and '12, batting .163 over 49 at-bats with one RBI.
