Blake Tekotte played parts of two seasons with the Charlotte Knights (2013-14).

Blake Tekotte is changing the color of his “Sox”. Tekotte, 27, recently signed a Minor League contract with the Boston Red Sox after spending parts of the past two seasons in the White Sox organization.

A product of the University of Miami, Tekotte played for the Knights in each of the past two seasons and compiled a .244 batting average with 141 hits, 69 runs scored, 45 doubles, four triples, 15 home runs, 68 RBIs, and 13 stolen bases over 157 games.

He was acquired by Chicago from San Diego on November 7, 2012 in exchange for pitcher Brandon Kloess.

A former third round pick of the San Diego Padres in the 2008 draft, Tekotte has appeared in 50 games at the Major League level between the Padres and the White Sox. In seven seasons at the Minor League level, the Columbia, MO native, has compiled a .262 batting average with 397 runs scored, 663 hits, 158 doubles, 22 triples, 80 home runs, 316 RBIs, and 123 stolen bases in 666 games.
