White Sox acquire Mark Teahen

Bill Madden of the New York Daily News is reporting that the White Sox have traded second baseman Chris Getz and third baseman Josh Fields to the Royals for outfielder Mark Teahen

Teahen, who is expected to replace Jermaine Dye in right field, hit .271 with 12 home runs, 50 RBI and 69 runs. 

Fields struggled mightily since breaking out to hit 22 home runs in 2007; however, Fields never showed he had knowledge of the strike zone, which can be seen from his 226 strikeouts-to-68 walks in 664 career at-bats.

However, adding Getz and Fields certainly gives the Royals some options next season, especially if they can improve on their 2009 numbers. Playing in the same division should certainly play to their benefit.

Is there a winner to this trade yet?
