Giants released INF Mark Teahen.

The Giants signed Teahen to a minor league deal in February, and he'd been in the team's minor league camp this spring. Teahen hasn't played in the majors since 2011, and it's likely that his professional career is over.

Giants signed INF Mark Teahen to a minor league contract.

The deal does not include an invitation to Major League spring training. The 32-year-old hasn't appeared in the big leagues since he was a member of the Blue Jays during the 2011 season. He's nothing more than minor league filler at this point.

Mark Teahen has signed a contract with the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League.

Teahen was released by the Rangers two weeks ago after batting .198/.293/.226 in 32 games at Triple-A. The 31-year-old will aim to work his way back into affiliated ball. It seems crazy at this point that he had 18 homers, 69 RBI and an .874 OPS in 2006 with Kansas City.

Rangers released INF Mark Teahen.

Teahen was signed by the Rangers last month and has batted just .198/.293/.226 at the Triple-A level. The 31-year-old will look to continue his career elsewhere as organizational depth.

Rangers signed INF Mark Teahen to a minor league contract.

Diamondbacks released INF Mark Teahen.

Teahen asked for and was granted his release. The veteran infielder hit .211/.318/.254 with 22 strikeouts in 22 games at Triple-A Reno but should be able to latch on with a new team. The Reds tried to trade for him at the end of April, but Teahen did not pass his physical.
Mon, May 20, 2013 12:11:00 PM's Mark Sheldon reports that the Reds returned INF/OF Mark Teahen to the Diamondbacks due to an issue with his physical.

Teahen was acquired by the Reds earlier this week for cash considerations or a player to be named later, but the deal has been nixed. The exact issue with the physical isn't yet known. The 31-year-old was hitting .211/.318/.254 through his first 22 games with Triple-A Reno this season.

Reds acquired INF/OF Mark Teahen from the Diamondbacks for cash or a player to be named later.

Teahen hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011 and is batting just .209/.321/.254 this year at the Triple-A level. He'll give the Reds depth at Triple-A Louisville.

Diamondbacks signed OF Mark Teahen to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 31-year-old batted just .260/.328/.360 in 500 plate appearances this past season for the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, New York. Teahen was once a promising, young, versatile player for the Royals, but he will now struggle to reach the MLB level with Arizona.

Mark Teahen has elected free agency.

Teahen hit .260/.328/.360 with three homers and 63 RBI while spending the entire season at Triple-A Syracuse. He's unlikely to generate much interest on the free agent market and will probably have to settle for a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Nationals reassigned INF Mark Teahen to minor league camp; optioned C Jhonatan Solano and 1B Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse.

Teahen was released from the Blue Jays over the winter after batting just .200/.273/.300 with four homers and 14 RBI across 177 plate appearances in 2011. He signed a minor league pact with Washington but failed to claim a utility job. Solano is known as a solid defender and he could be summoned down the line. The 25-year-old Moore has slugged 62 homers over the past two seasons between High-A Potomac and Double-A Harrisburg and was recently ranked as the Nationals' No. 16 prospect by Baseball America.

Teahen was released from the Blue Jays last month after batting just .200/.273/.300 with four homers and 14 RBI across 177 plate appearances in 2011. He will get a crack at claiming a utility spot in Nats camp this spring.
