CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox say outfielder Dayan Viciedo is undergoing treatment for a strained oblique muscle.

Viciedo was injured in Thursday's game at Toronto, and the team says he is day to day.

He clutched his left side after swinging at a 1-0 pitch from Aaron Loup in the eighth inning and left the game. Viciedo is batting .229 with two homers and five RBIs.

The White Sox were scheduled to host Minnesota on Friday, but the game was postponed due to a forecast of cold and windy weather.
