Cubs targeting Teahen for RF

According to this, the Cubs are interested in Mark Teahen to be their LH-RF. The article suggests Felix Pie may be the chip since they'd like to shift DeJesus to LF if they can acquire a CF. Also mentioned are Cedeno and Fontenot if the Royals prefer a MI. For minimal analysis, try here. Interesting that it is assumed that acquiring Dempster puts the Cubs out of the running for Peavy, and that talks for Teahen were going on earlier, but stalled when the Cubs thought they might have to use some of those chips toward a Peavy acquisition. Teahen certainly fits within the "affordable" mantra, as he's arb eligible and likely to cost around $3 mil. I'm not that well informed on his abilities, so I'd welcome any information. Thoughts?
