Some scouts like the Sox Mark Teahen acquisition

Three scouts like the Mark Teahen acquisition, especially now that he will go back to third base:

“That’s where he should have been. You’ll see his numbers improve.”

Another scout:

“Teahen needs to put the ball in play more often with that lineup and lack of power right now. I do think he’ll make their overall defense better at third.”

BTW, here’s Mark Rosenthal’s opinion:

“Mark Teahen was a below average defender at third base last season according to two advanced metrics, and one rival GM says he does not hit well enough to justify the $5 million plus the low-revenue Royals would have had to pay him in salary arbitration. The White Sox can better afford Teahen, but a .749 career OPS at third? Hmmm.”
