MARK%20TEAHEN.jpgINDIANAPOLIS - Finally, some business conducted by the White Sox.
And so what if it was only solidifying the new infield foundation, it was still actual business in a sea of rumors and speculation in Day 2 of the Winter Meetings.
The club announced on Tuesday that they agreed on a three-year, $14-million contract with third baseman Mark Teahen, avoiding arbitration.
Under the terms of the deal, Teahen will receive $3.75 million in 2010, $4.75 million in 2011 and $5.5 million in 2012. He was eligible for free agency following the 2011 season.
The 28-year-old, acquired from Kansas City earlier in the offseason, hit .271 with a career-high 34 doubles, 12 home runs and 50 RBI in 144 games with the Royals last year. He made 99 starts at third base, 31 in right field and three at second, but was quickly told when the Sox acquired him that third base would be his permanent home.
