Friday, November 6, 2009 | 12:10 p.m. CST

CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox have acquired infielder/outfielder Mark Teahen in a trade from the Kansas City Royals for infielders Chris Getz and Josh Fields. The White Sox also get cash considerations.

Teahen batted .271 with a 12 home runs and 50 RBI in 144 games with the Royals in 2009. He made 99 starts at third base, 31 in right field and three at second.

Getz, who became Chicago's starting second baseman, batted .261 with two homers, 31 RBIs and 25 stolen bases in 107 games last season.

Fields, a former college quarterback at Oklahoma State, appeared in 29 games and batted .222 with seven homers and 30 RBIs last season.

The trade was announced shortly after the White Sox said they had declined a 2010 option on right fielder Jermaine Dye.
