Why? Because he's kind of husky?
Yah. I guess it's possible (someone else corrected me that he did play the OF in Texas) but he just doesn't look like he could motor around the grass. He is 6'3" and 220lbs.
What about the Josh Hamilton's, Carlos Quentin's, or the Vlad's of the world? They're actually around the same size as Teix and they seem just fine in the OF. Even Adam Dunn...
Teix entered the league as a 3rd baseman and has the talent of a 3rd baseman. So, I don't think their is a question of a doubt that he can play the outfield if he was EVER asked to again. I mean he has already done it in early years, correct? But you're right, I just can't picture him playing anything else these days but 1st base, since he has also won a gold-glove in that position.
