The White Sox agreed to a three-year deal with Mark Teahen, tweets team employee Scott Reifert. AOL FanHouse's Ed Price tweets that the deal is worth $14MM (Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald has details). Teahen hinted about the deal a few hours ago on Twitter, saying his family's Christmas wish list just got longer. The deal buys out two arbitration years and one free agent season. On November 6th, the Sox acquired Teahen and a million bucks from the Royals for Chris Getz and Josh Fields. Teahen will be Chicago's regular third baseman.
My opinion: I'd rather go year-to-year with Teahen to keep my options open, but the White Sox are saving money over what he would've earned in arbitration.
