Mark Teahen signs with independent league team

Toronto Blue Jays batter Mark Teahen returns to the dugout after striking out during the second inning of his MLB American League baseball game against the Oakland Athletics in Oakland Reuters

Not so long ago Mark Teahen was a big-league regular and he’s still just 31 years old, but he hasn’t been in the majors since 2011 and this year he’s bounced around, being released from Triple-A by both the Diamondbacks and Rangers along with having an agreed-upon trade to the Reds nullified.

And now he’s headed to independent ball, with Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reporting that Teahen has agreed to a deal with the York Revolution of the Atlantic League.

It’s a roster stocked with former big leaguers, including Brett Tomko, Andy Marte, Jeff Fiorentino, Eric Patterson, Michael Wuertz, Corey Thurman, and Juan Rincon.

    Long way from a big league clubhouse to somewhere called York Pennselvania. The post game spread is now Subway sandwhiches, the BP balls look like they were rolled in mud and the groupies look like Bea Arthur.

      LMAO at the Bea Arthur. Did you see someone dropped a crapload of money for a painting of her topless recently? Where are you going to hang that????

    So this is where Andy Marte is hiding? I’m this much closer to completing my scavenger hunt!

    Now I just have to find Jose Capellan and George Lombard.

      George Lombard is a outfield and baserunning rover for the Red Sox.
