Teasley enters his second year with the Somerset Patriots and second season in the Atlantic League. The gold-haired southpaw enjoyed a breakout season in Somerset last year, posting a 7-2 record with a 2.85 ERA over 14 appearances (10 starts). Teasley went 2-0 and allowed just one run over his first four appearances (0.75 ERA) as a reliever before he transitioned into the starting rotation.
From there, the Port St. Lucie, Florida native shined. Teasley went 5-2 over 10 games as a starting pitcher and was selected as the starting pitcher for the Liberty Division in the 2017 Atlantic League All-Star Game. He tossed a scoreless, perfect inning to begin the festivities at TD Bank Ballpark.
At the time of the All-Star Game, the southpaw was tied for the league-lead in wins (7) and ranked sixth in the league in ERA (2.85). Additionally, Teasley yielded just 14 walks over his 75.2 innings pitched with the Patriots (including 11 walks over 10 games started).
His contract was purchased by ChinaTrust Brothers (Taiwan) on July 17th, where he finished his 2017 season.
Prior to 2017, Teasley had pitched for three seasons with the Southern Illinois Miners of the Frontier League, totaling a 28-14 record with a 3.67 ERA in 57 starts. He went 8-5 over 17 starts and finished third in the league in complete games (three) with the Miners in 2016.
The 26 year-old began his career in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, where he tossed a 2.61 ERA over 41.1 innings of work split between Rookie-level Princeton and Short-Season Hudson Valley. He owns a career 38-20 record and a 3.44 ERA over five seasons of professional baseball stateside.
