The Kansas City Royals announced Friday they traded utility player Mark Teahen to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for infielders Chris Getz and Josh Fields.
Additionally, the White Sox received cash considerations from the Royals.
Teahen, 28, who has spent his entire five-year career with the Royals, has played every position other than pitcher and catcher. In 2009, he batted. 271 with 12 homers and 50 runs batted in for Kansas City in 144 games.
In 676 career games, Teahen, who was originally dealt to the Royals from Oakland in a three-team deal that sent Carlos Beltran to Houston, has a .269 batting average, 59 homers and 293 RBI. It’s possible that Teahen could play right field next year for Chicago, as the White Sox bought out Jermaine Dye’s contract Friday.
Teahen is eligible for arbitration this offseason.
