    Teahen was a high school shortstop and spent his freshman year at St. Mary's at second base. He grew to 6-foot-3, 215 pounds and moved to third base. A contact hitter with a fluid stroke, Teahen hit .369-1-36 as a sophomore and raised his average to .405 as a junior with six home runs. He's been content to take pitches the other way and could develop more power as he learns which pitches to pull and drive. For now, his power is a concern. Known as a hard worker, he has a strong arm and an outstanding glove. He reminds some scouts of Cubs third baseman Bill Mueller and projects to go in the third or fourth round.
