That said I wouldn't trade him, unless he's the deal breaker in an A-Gon deal, but that's because I think Teahen will flop.
We agree on the bolded part. I always cheer for every White Sox player. But, I've seen scant evidence that Teahen will be a high-quality player at that position, both offensively and defensively.
I suspect that if Morel continues to progress, that Teahen's 3rd season under contract will be spent as a utility player for this team. That is, IF he's still on the team. Meanwhile, Morel would then take over the starting 3B spot.
