Tigers optioned INF Casey McGehee to Triple-A Toledo.

McGehee has seen a lot of time at third base lately with Nick Castellanos sidelined, but he's batting just .232 (19-for-82) with one double over 22 games with the Tigers this season. The 33-year-old figures to return in September.

Casey McGehee went 4-for-5, scored a run and drove in a run to lead the Tigers over the Rangers on Saturday.

He singled and scored the game's first run in the fifth inning, then drove in the other run with a double in the sixth. The veteran journeyman was called up from the minors to take over third base from the injured Nick Castellanos. McGehee should get near everyday playing time moving forward. He is not very exciting for fantasy purposes.

Tigers purchased the contract of INF Casey McGehee from Triple-A Toledo.

He'll replace Nick Castellanos, who was placed on the disabled list with a fractured left hand. McGehee has been tearing it up in Triple-A, hitting .325 in 406 at-bats for Toledo this year. McGehee should see plenty of time at the hot corner while Castellanos is on the shelf.

Casey McGehee was pulled from Saturday's game for Triple-A Toledo.

It looks like McGehee is on his way to Detroit, where he'll be taking the roster spot left by Nick Castellanos (broken hand). McGehee has only logged one at-bat in the majors this year, but he's been a beast for the Mud Hens, hitting .325 with 37 doubles over 406 at-bats. He'll have a chance to see regular playing time at third during Castellanos' absence. Utility man Mike Aviles will get reps there as well.

Tigers sent INF Casey McGehee outright to Triple-A Toledo.

McGee was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Monday after a brief stint with the big club. He had the option to decline the assignment to Triple-A, but he'll stick around as organizational depth.

Tigers designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

McGehee went 0-for-1 in his short stay with Detroit. The 33-year-old will probably pass through waivers unclaimed, at which point he can either become a free agent or accept his old job back at Triple-A.

Tigers purchased the contract of 3B Casey McGehee from Triple-A Toledo.

McGehee was batting .323/.370/.440 with four home runs and 27 RBI through 66 games this season at the Triple-A level, but he hasn't been a productive major leaguer since way back in 2010. The 33-year-old seems doubtful to gain any fantasy relevance.
Sat, Jun 18, 2016 04:27:00 PM

Tigers re-signed 3B Casey McGehee to a minor league contract.

McGehee was released from Tigers camp on Monday but has decided to remain a member of the organization after around 48 hours of reflection. The 33-year-old will function as organizational corner infield depth for Detroit. He batted just .198/.264/.274 in 109 games last season between San Francisco and Miami.

Tigers released 3B Casey McGehee.

McGehee showed a little pop this spring in the Grapefruit League, but he was never going to crack the Tigers' Opening Day roster. The 33-year-old batted just .198/.264/.274 with two home runs and 20 RBI in 109 games last season between the Giants and Marlins.
Mon, Mar 28, 2016 02:49:00 PM

Tigers signed INF Casey McGehee to a minor league contract.

It presumably includes an invitation to spring training, where McGehee will attempt to win a bench job. The 33-year-old was flat-out brutal last season, batting just .198/.264/.274 with two home runs over 109 games between the Giants and Marlins. His .538 OPS was fourth-lowest among players with at least 250 plate appearances.

Casey McGehee went hitless again Tuesday, lowering his average to .208.

McGehee went 0-for-3 before being removed from the game. He's 6-for-41 since July 17, dropping his overall line to .208/.277/.298. The Marlins aren't going anywhere, but it's hard to understand why they keep running him out there at this point.

Casey McGehee is starting at third base and batting fifth in Saturday's game against the Reds.

The Marlins brought back McGehee on Friday and will throw him right to the wolves on Saturday (technically, they threw him to the wolves on Friday with a pinch-hitting appearance; McGehee doubled and now owns a 3.000 OPS in one PA on the season with the Marlins). McGehee hit .213/.275/.299 in 49 games for the Giants before they gave him the boot. We're going to recommend McGehee in DFS formats from time to time when the matchup is ideal, but even against youngster Raisel Iglesias today, you're likely to find better options.

Newly acquired Marlin Casey McGehee is expected to start in Saturday's game against the Reds.

Looks like the team is going to waste little time getting McGehee some at-bats. They signed him on Friday and he appears to be in line for the starting lineup on Saturday. McGee hit .213/.275/.299 in 49 games for the Giants before they cut bait with the infielder.
