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.
Mar 28 - 2:49 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.
Feb 23 - 8:12 AM

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.

Marlins signed 3B Casey McGehee to a one-year contract.

McGehee hit .213/.275/.299 in 49 games for the Giants this season before the team opted to release him. He should offer the Marlins infield depth, which just became more necessary with the DL-ing of Jeff Baker with an oblique injury. While he should see playing time, there's no fantasy upside here.

Joe Frisaro of reports that the Marlins are set to sign Casey McGehee.

This confirms a report from Andy Slater of 940-AM WINZ, who hears that McGehee will join the Marlins on Friday. The Giants gave up on the 32-year-old after he hit just .213/.275/.299 over 49 games this season. He's reportedly still on release waivers, but will be free to sign with a team on Friday. He will likely function as a backup infielder in his return to Miami.

Giants released 3B Casey McGehee.

McGehee was designated for assignment at the end of June and is now officially done as a member of the Giants. The 32-year-old batted just .213/.275/.299 in 49 games for San Francisco, but he should be able to find a minor league contract from some organization. Or he could always return to Japan.

Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento in late-May before returning a couple of weeks later, but now he's officially off the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old has batted just .213/.275/.299 over 49 games this season and Matt Duffy has played his way into the starting third base job. He's making a $4.8 million salary.

Giants recalled 3B Casey McGehee from Triple-A Sacramento.

McGehee was sent out just last week but finds himself back on the big club's roster after hitting .357/.391/.571 with a couple homers in 10 games at Sacramento. He'll back up Matt Duffy at third base.

Giants optioned 3B Casey McGehee to Triple-A Sacramento.

McGehee was designated for assignment by the Giants on Sunday and had the option to become a free agent, but he would have been forfeiting what's left of his $4.8 million salary for 2015. He had an option left, so the 32-year-old third baseman will remain on the Giants' 40-man roster. McGehee will try to work his way back to San Francisco with a strong showing at the Triple-A level.

Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

The Giants traded for McGehee over the winter in hopes that he'd pick up some of the offensive slack following the loss to Pablo Sandoval. It would be an understatement to say it didn't work out, as he hit just .200/.254/.282 and is now off the roster. Matt Duffy will be San Francisco's regular third baseman.

Casey McGehee is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

The slumping infielder has been on the bench pretty regularly of late. Matt Duffy is at third base Sunday in McGehee's place.

Casey McGehee is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Astros.

McGehee hit a grand slam on Friday, but he's back on the bench after back-to-back O-fers. Matt Duffy will start at third base and bat eighth against Collin McHugh.
