Sox sign Mark Teahen to 3-year deal

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ December 8, 2009 12:50 pm


The White Sox third baseman of the present also became their third baseman of the immediate future when Mark Teahen and the team agreed to a three-year, $14-million contract on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration.

Teahen, 28, who was acquired by the White Sox from Kansas City on Nov. 6 in exchange for Chris Getz and Josh Fields, will earn $3.75 million in 2010, $4.75 million in 2011 and $5.5 million in 2012. Teahen was eligible to become a free agent following the 2011 season. …


With the signing, the Sox now have 15 players signed for 2010 at $79.675 million, $1.5 of which will come from Kansas City in the Teahen deal.

$14 million? What the hell is going on here? Couldn’t Kenny stop at $8-9 million? Sox got 1 more year. He’d  been a free-agent after 2011…

SoxNet’s take.

MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes says “the White Sox are saving money over what he would’ve earned in arbitration.”

Kenny Williams on Mark Teahen: We believe he’s going to produce and produce in a big way.
