Is Dayan Viciedo the future at first base?

Chicago White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo is a right-handed-hitting All-Star in the making. Viciedo is also the first baseman of the future for the White Sox.

Now, the idea that Viciedo would play first base for the White Sox is not a new one.

General manager Rick Hahn left no doubt that a move to first is a distinct possibility. When asked about the chances Viciedo finds himself at yet another position, Hahn said “down the road, absolutely.” (via ESPN.com)

A move to first would not be a short-term fix; rather it would be made to solidify the position for a number of years.

By looking at the position itself, then contract ramifications and, finally, Viciedo’s performance, there are 10 reasons why he will be an able replacement at first base for the White Sox.
