WSC Birth Years: Mark Teahen

Card #60 - Mark Teahen

Born: September 6, 1981

Mark was acquired during the offseason for second baseman Chris Getz and an under-performing Josh Fields. The plan was simple. Move Gordon Beckham to second base to replace Chris Getz and plug Teahen into third base in place of Beckham and Josh Fields.

Early in the 2010 season, Mark's defense was suspect and his bat was slow to come around. When both were finally showing more consistent signs of life, Teahen broke his finger and was put on the disabled list. Hopefully, this will not be a huge blow to Mark's progress, when he returns.

If Teahen lives up to his full potential with the White Sox, Mark could be a permanent fixture at third base, possibly joining the ranks of Robin Ventura and Joe Crede in the hearts of ChiSox fans.
