Diamondbacks sign Mark Teahen to minor-league deal

Jason Miller

The agreement includes an invitation to spring training for the veteran corner infielder/outfielder.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed veteran corner infielder/outfielder Mark Teahen to a minor-league contract, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic:

Teahen, 31, did not see any major-league action this past season, spending the entire year at the Washington Nationals’ Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, where he hit .260/.328/.360 with three home runs in 124 games.

The 2012 season marked the first time since 2005 that Teahen did not spend at least some time on a big league roster. The lefty hitter received most of his playing time in his five seasons with the Kansas City Royals, and has bounced around from the White Sox to the Blue Jays to the Nationals over the past three years.

Teahen is a career .264/.329/.409 hitter with 67 home runs across parts of seven big-league seasons.
