Rosenthal: White Sox: Open to dealing Mark Teahen

Ken Rosenthal @ YB:

The White Sox are open to trading Mark Teahen rather than making him a high-priced utility man at the four corner positions and DH. Still, Teahen represents insurance for rookie third baseman Brent Morel, an outstanding defender who might not hit right away.

Manager Ozzie Guillen likes Teahen’s left-handed bat and estimates that he could find 350 at-bats for the veteran if Morel wins the starting job at third. The problem: Teahen, who is guaranteed $4.75 million this season and $5.5 million in 2012, would be overpaid as a reserve.

I don’t think that’s a new development Ken…


  1. I think that if morel is fine at third, then trade teahen. in a couple of months, we will see if we need him. if not, then what do they trade him for?

      • if teahen is on the trading block, then who do we trade him for? he might be a good catch for a team in desperate need of offence (like padres or cubs). but I would like to get prospects out of teahen, since the team is good all around.
