White Sox activate 3B Teahen from DL

The Chicago White Sox have activated third baseman Mark Teahen

from the 15-day disabled list and designated right-hander reliever

Jeff Marquez for assignment.

The team announced the moves before its home game Sunday against


Teahen was out with a strained right oblique. He is hitting .226

with one home run and four RBIs in 24 games. He was 6 for 31 in

eight games with Triple-A Charlotte on his rehab assignment.

He has been playing a reserve role for the White Sox, filling in

at third base, first base, right and left field.

Marquez did not pitch for the White Sox after his contract was

purchased from Charlotte.
