During his four year career, Teaford pitched for the Kansas City Royals and the Tampa Bay Rays. He finished with a 3-5 record, 4.11 ERA, 67 K, and 38 BB in 111.2 innings pitched/49 games. After being designated for assignment by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2015, Teaford decided to retire a few months later in January 2016. He then accepted a job in the Astros’ scouting department where he has spent the past two seasons.
It is not yet clear what Teaford’s exact role will be as a member of the White Sox player development staff. However, we will provide updates on our social media pages as soon as more information is made available.
