Teahen activated, Marquez designated for assignment

The White Sox reinstated Mark Teahen from the 15-day DL Sunday, sending Jeff Marquez packing to make room.

Teahen, who is hitting .226 with 1 HR and 4 RBIs in 24 games this season, was rehabbing a strained right oblique at Triple-A Charlotte. He went 6 for 31 in eight games, starting four games at third base, two at first, one in right field and one in left.

He will be used in a similar capacity now that he’s back in Chicago, but with Brent Morel hitting .352 (19 for 54) over the last month, it will be tougher to get Teahen at-bats at third base for now.

Marquez wasn’t used by the White Sox after his contract was purchased from Charlotte on May 30.  He was 3-4 with a 3.97 ERA in nine starts with the Knights this season.

Paul Konerko is in Ozzie Guillen’s lineup as of Sunday morning, but Guillen said in his pre-game presser that Konerko could be scratched if his wrist is still too sore.
