The Kansas City Royals have agreed to trade Mark Teahen (OF/3B) to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for third baseman Josh Fields and second baseman Chris Getz, according to the New York Daily News

As ESPN indicates, the deal is far from finalized. As of this morning, Getz told a local radio station that he was not aware of the trade.

When asked, the White Sox front office refused to comment on the story. 

If the deal does go through, it is speculated that Teahen will replace Jermaine Dye. However, Teahen, who hit 12 home runs with a .271 average, 50 RBI, and eight stolen bases last season, is versatile. 

He played second base before Royals third baseman Alex Gordon went on the disabled list and then took over at third. He also played 124 games in the outfield.

Fields hit only .222 with seven home runs in 239 at-bats in 2009. Getz had 25 stolen bases for the White Sox while hitting .261 in 375 ABs.
