ROUND ROCK, Tex. – Former Columbus State University baseball player Brett Teschner has continued his climb up the Texas Rangers Minor League depth chart as the former Cougar was called up from Class-A Hickory to Triple-A Round Rock.  

Round Rock has had a plethora of injuries of late as two catchers have been placed on the disabled list in the past six days. Elli Whiteside went down on July 24 while Jose Felix went on the self on Monday. With the need for a catcher, Teschner received the call.

Since signing as an undrafted free agent on June 26, Teschner has made a few stops in his short professional career. He was first assign to the AZL Rangers playing just one game going 1-for-3 with a RBI before being promoted to Hickory. At Hickory, Teschner recorded three hits in five games including going 2-for-4 with a double on July 15 against the Lakewood Blueclaws.

A two-year standout for the Cougars, Teschner wrapped up his playing career this past spring for CSU.  He played in all 52 games splitting time between the catcher and designated hitter position.  Teschner sported a .333 batting average which included 25 extra-base hits.  The Loganville native was second on the team with 54 RBIs and crossed the plate 37 times.

Teschner had one of the best single-game performances in Peach Belt Conference history in the second game of a March 16 doubleheader against Montevallo.  He had a 5-for-5 performance including becoming just the 11th player in PBC history to hit three home runs in a single game. It was the first time a CSU player did the feat in over eight years.
