Description: Omar Vizquel will be on Toronto's Opening Day roster. Vizquel will turn 45 next month.
Insight: It's a nice story but it means zilch in the world of fantasy. Vizquel drove in just eight runs in 58 appearances last season. Vizquel has only hit double-digit homers once in his career and he hasn't been a real stolen base threat in five years. Vizquel looks bound for another lonely season on the fantasy waiver wire.

Description: MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports the White Sox have re-signed Vizquel to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.
Insight: Vizquel will turn 44 next April, but he looks likely to play an important role for the White Sox in 2011. He hit .276 over 391 plate appearances this past season while seeing action at three infield spots. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Omar Vizquel said Tuesday that he wants to return to the White Sox next season. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: Vizquel doesn't produce much offense, but he is still solid with the glove. However, the offense is what matters in fantasy, so don't bother with him.

Description: Omar Vizquel recently stated that he will likely be back next season. SOURCE: Chicago Sun-Times
Insight: Vizquel is a good veteran presence and a slick fielder, too. Still, he holds minimal value without much power and is a suitable option for deeper mixed leagues.
 
7/7/2010 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Chicago Sun Times reports White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen hopes to get Vizquel (left knee) back within the next couple of games.
Insight: Vizquel came into Tuesday night's game as defensive replacement, so he appears close to returning to the starting lineup at third base. Dayan Viciedo would then move back to the bench. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/5/2010 3:17:00 AM
Description: Vizquel (knee) left Sunday's game against the Rangers after being hit by a pitch on the left knee by Texas pitcher Scott Feldman.
Insight: X-rays on Vizquel's knee came back negative, and he will be re-evaluated on Monday. Rookie Dayan Viciedo should see more time at third base if he has to miss time. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/10/2010 12:54:00 PM
Description: The Chicago Sun Times reports White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said Vizquel will miss at least the first two games of this weekend's series against the Cubs to deal with a family matter in Venezuela.
Insight: Jayson Nix is in line to start at 3B in Vizquel's absence. Hopefully this news does not affect your fantasy team. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/26/2010 12:24:00 AM
Description: The Chicago Sun Times reports Vizquel is unsure if he'll continue his career after this season.
Insight: The 43-year old Vizquel is currently hitting .200 over 45 at-bats in a utility role for the White Sox this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/9/2010 11:40:00 PM
Description: MLBlogs.com reports Vizquel has not ruled out playing beyond this season.
Insight: Vizquel will turn 43 in April, and is nothing more than a valuable veteran backup infielder at this point in his career. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady1/18/2009 11:55:00 AM
Description: The Rangers are interested in Vizquel for a utility infield role and as insurance to rookie Elvis Andrus, according to the Rangers' website.
Insight: Vizquel hit just .222 in 92 games with the Giants last year. Even in his best years, he didn't provide much for fantasy beyond stolen bases. (SportsBuff.com)
