White Sox put Mark Teahen on DL, call up Dallas McPherson

Mark Teahen had hoped to avoid the disabled list after straining his oblique muscle last Wednesday, but after leaving him on the active roster as long as possible the White Sox have put him on the shelf and called up Dallas McPherson from Triple-A.

McPherson was once a top prospect with the Angels, but injuries and tons of strikeouts stalled his career and he’s been mashing Triple-A pitching for the past few years.

McPherson has 110 homers and a .599 slugging percentage in 379 career games at Triple-A, but that power comes with a modest .279 batting average and staggering 511 strikeouts. He’ll likely serve as a bench bat while the White Sox roll with Brent Morel and Omar Vizquel at third base.
