Mark Teahen has reportedly been traded to the Chicago White Sox. The Kansas City Royals will receive second baseman Chris Getz and third baseman Josh Fields. Getz stole 25 bases in only 107 games in 2009, while Fields hit 23 home runs in only 100 games in 2007. Both players are currently 26 years old. Teahen hit 12 home runs and drove in 50 while hitting .271 last year. He split time between first, second, and third base, as well as right field.
