Merkin @ CWS:

What was assumed to be official White Sox news became just that prior to Thursday’s game against the Cubs, when manager Ozzie Guillen announced rookie Brent Morel as the team’s starting third baseman.

Mark Teahen will fill the super-sub role, playing third base, first base and the outfield.

“Teahen will be here just for his offense,” Guillen said. “Moving around to different positions, it’s hard for everyone. We don’t expect him to be a Gold Glove. We expect him to do the best he can. There’s no doubt if this kid [Morel] makes the ballclub, he has to play every day.”

Guillen plans to protect Morel against tough right-handed pitchers, but won’t use Teahen only against those high-end hurlers.
