The White Sox have traded Josh Fields and Chris Getz to Kansas City in exchange for infielder-outfielder Mark Teahen, the White Sox have confirmed.

We've already seen a trade and a few re-signings pretty quickly this offseason. It could be a fast moving November for baseball.

Wow the Royals got a pretty good player in Getz and Fields has a chance of being really good, I like this trade for them

world series thunder officially stolen. Last year it was A-Rod announcing that he was opting out...this year its Mark Teahan to the Chi Sox...thunder STOLEN.

Does this signal that Alex Gordon is losing favor in KC?

So the Royals couldn't find someone as good as Yunesky?

I don't think so, Fields is pretty injury prone and he's played left field before, I'm sure if they really wanted Fields, Butler and Gordon to all play they'd find a way. Any chance this means Dejesus could be traded?

Super.

I like it for the Royals tbh. Both Getz and Fields have a chance to be solid starters.

The white-sox love to make deals! Never a dull moment with Kenny Williams!

I hear ya. I know Fields is a 3B by trade, and not sure how he is in the OF.

DeJesus coming off a decent year? Maybe he does get traded...

Wow, this actually seems like a good trade for the Royals. Dayton Moore must be sick or something. He's more of a guy that trades a top prospect for an absolutely awful player... Betancourt.

pretty fair deal but since the Royals are going to suck next year anyways, why don't the go get younger prospects that will help them in the future? They ae a very poorly run team

Doesn't make sense for either team, unless Getz plays SS?

Typical Dayton Moore move. Acquiring 2 guys that have trouble getting on base.

why is everyone so high on fields? coming from a white sox fan believe me the guys garbage. getz will turn out to be a servicable 2B but nothing more

Getz is garbage, Fields will never have a high OBP and has a gigantic K rate. He will hit for some power though, he is only average a 3B defensively if that.

Teahan isn't much better, it's a pretty pointless move.

No, they didn't. A .323 OBP and a .669 OPS isn't "pretty good". He sucks, and he doesn't have upside.

He doesn't have near enough range for SS, he is below average at 2B as is.

Like it for Chi-town. Get a versatile player that should hit well at US Cellular Field. Getz is solid but Fields is pretty worthless. He can't hit a breaking ball to save his life.

fields is garbage except for a half season in 06. Other than that, have fun with a .220 hitter in your lineup.

They obviously didnt like us winning so wanted to act straight away. I was looking forward to the off-season but not this early!

In terms of the trade: for right now its a good White Sox move. In the future could be a good Royals move. What about Alex Gordon? I take it Fields will move to LF or something?

Now they are saying that neither team has confirmed the deal
