White Sox Trade For OF Blake Tekotte

The White Sox have traded RHP Brandon Kloess for OF Blake Tekotte.  By reading different sources, it seems like Tekotte is a decent prospect (top 20 in the San Diego's system), but injuries have slowed down his career.  Tekotte can play all three outfield positions and has good speed as he stole 36 bases in 2011.  Below are a couple different excerpts on Tekotte.

20) Blake Tekotte – Tekotte remains an extremely interesting power/speed option in the outfield, but injuries have limited his availability this season.  He can provide a lot of value as a bench player to a contending team as Tekotte is able to play all three outfield spots. 

Tekotte, 25, has hit .163/.226/.224 in 55 plate appearances for the Padres over the last two years. He's a .269/.355/.445 career hitter at the minor league level. Baseball America ranked Tekotte as San Diego's 15th best prospect before the season in their Prospect Handbook, saying he "makes enough contact against lefties and fields well enough to remain relevant as a potential center-field regular"
