Casey McGehee went 2-for-3 with a double, a sac fly and three RBI as the Marlins beat the Phillies 6-4 on Thursday.

McGehee's first three-RBI game since June 15. He has just 21 RBI in 63 games since the break after driving in 53 runs in 93 games during the first half. Still, the late slump probably won't prevent the Marlins from bringing him back as their starting third baseman next year. While McGehee was signed to just a one-year deal after returning from Japan, he's only arbitration eligible this winter, meaning he could be looking at a raise from $1.1 million to the $3 million-$4 million range.

Casey McGehee went 0-for-4 with one strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

He wasn't alone, as the Marlins managed just four hits and one run off of Stephen Strasburg and the Nats' bullpen. McGehee has just one hit over his last 12 at-bats and is now batting just .244/.319/.316 since the All-Star break after a nice first half.

Casey McGehee was ejected from Thursday's game against the Brewers.

McGehee was barking at Mike Fiers, who hit Giancarlo Stanton in the face with a pitch and then went up and in on Reed Johnson with his next offering, hitting him on the hand (neither was ruled a hit by pitch). It's possible McGehee could be facing a fine given how hot he was, but a suspension seems unlikely.
Sep 11 - 10:27 PM

Casey McGehee came up huge for the Marlins Tuesday, hitting a game-winning two-run home run in the Marlins' 6-3 win over the Brewers.

McGehee finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored, but it was the bomb off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth inning that mattered most. The homer was just his fourth of the season and broke a 3-3 tie. McGehee now has 70 RBI to go with a .297/.367/.374 line as his improbable comeback season heads into the home stretch.
Sep 10 - 12:48 AM

Casey McGehee went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in the Marlins' win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

McGehee saw his average dip to .298 before the weekend, but a six-game hitting streak has his average back up to .304. During the streak McGehee is 10-for-24 with four multi-hit games. He's got four doubles and a home run in that time, hitting .304/.373/.387 overall.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are likelier to extend Casey McGehee than trade him.

McGehee is a sell high candidate if there ever was one, but the Marlins evidently want to keep him around. The third baseman is eligible for arbitration this winter for a final time, so the Marlins wouldn't necessarily have to extend McGehee in order to keep him around for another year. McGehee, who has drawn interest from the Mariners, among other clubs, is batting .322 with 56 RBI this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners are among the teams interested in Casey McGehee.

McGehee has played his way into being a nice trade chip for the Marlins, batting .322 with 56 RBI. The Mariners are intent on finding a right-handed bat but have mostly been looking at outfielders. McGehee has played just one game in the outfield as a pro, but he could be used in the DH spot, with Corey Hart shifting to the outfield.
Jul 22 - 7:44 PM

Casey McGehee homered Sunday in the Marlins' 3-2 victory over the visiting Giants.

It was a two-run shot to deep left-center field off Giants starter Tim Lincecum. McGehee is batting .322 with 56 RBI in 96 games this season, but Sunday's home run was only his second. Part of that is the park he calls home. Marlins GM Dan Jennings said earlier this month that McGehee will not be on the block at this year's July 31 trade deadline, so don't expect the power to improve all that much down the stretch.
Jul 20 - 4:05 PM

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.

Jennings also confirmed that the Marlins have no plans to deal slugger Giancarlo Stanton, but it's a bit surprising that he has such a hard stance on McGehee. While the 31-year-old has put together a nice comeback season, he's not a long-term building block. Still, the Marlins don't appear interested in selling high.

Casey McGehee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

It's been a renaissance year for the 31-year-old, and he capped off a terrific series with a two-hit day Sunday. McGehee was 7-for-13 in the series and has four multi-hit games in his last five, raising his average to .320. Even with a noticeable lack of power, McGehee has become a mixed league option in his return to MLB.
Jul 6 - 8:23 PM

Casey McGehee went 1-for-2 with a walk and a single as the Marlins lost 1-0 to the Mets on Thursday.

McGehee was the only Marlin who could figure out Zack Wheeler, as he singled in the second inning and walked in the fifth. The third baseman continues to hit for average, as he is slashing .311/.376/.388 with 44 RBI on the season.
Jun 19 - 9:59 PM

Casey McGehee reached five of the six times he was up Monday, going 2-for-3 with an RBI and three walks.

You've certainly heard about McGehee's impressive RBI numbers by now, but did you know he had a .373 OBP? He came in at .280 in 2011 and .284 in 2012 before leaving to play in Japan last year. He's a big reason the Marlins are currently a game over .500.
Jun 17 - 12:55 AM

Casey McGehee went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

The Marlins were trailing 2-0 in the eighth inning, but McGehee tied things up with a two-RBI double. He then sent everyone home with a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th. The power hasn't been there, as McGehee has hit just one homer and is slugging .389. However, the Marlins have to be thrilled overall with his .309/.363/.389 batting line and 43 RBI.
Jun 15 - 5:01 PM

Casey McGehee went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored against the Rangers on Tuesday.

McGehee's three-hit night gives him 12 hits in his last 26 at-bats during his six-game hitting streak. The three singles raised his season line to .306/.363/.384, and his 39 RBI are ninth-most in the National League. Against all odds, the 31-year-old remains mixed-league relevant.
