Casey McGehee (knee) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He was then promptly removed for pinch-runner Tim Lincecum. Although McGehee clearly isn't at 100 percent yet as he battles a bone bruise in his left knee, the expectation is that he'll return to the lineup at some point this weekend.
Apr 17 - 9:58 AM

Casey McGehee (knee) remains out of the Giants starting lineup on Thursday.

The veteran third baseman is once again available to pinch hit, but isn't quite ready to man his position defensively. He should return over the weekend.
Apr 16 - 6:52 PM

Casey McGehee (knee) is available as to pinch hit Wednesday.

McGehee has been out of the lineup since Sunday, but he appears close to returning. The third baseman was doing pregame drills and told reporters he could start as soon as Thursday. It's good news considering the bone bruise in his left knee could have been much worse.
Apr 15 - 7:51 PM

Casey McGehee (knee) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

Matt Duffy will start at third base and bat second against the Rockies. Joe Panik has been bumped all the way down to eighth. McGehee suffered a bone bruise in his left knee Saturday in San Diego, but he's been able to do pregame activities over the past couple of days and he should be close to returning to action.
Apr 15 - 5:13 PM

Casey McGehee (knee) did some swinging and throwing on Tuesday.

McGehee, who is dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee, noted that he's feeling much better. He has not, however, been told by the trainers when he might be cleared to return to the lineup. McGehee is missing his third straight game on Tuesday.
Apr 14 - 7:33 PM

Casey McGehee has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee.

It's the best-case scenario, as the feeling had been that he likely suffered a strain. McGehee, who revealed that he actually first hurt the knee on Opening Day, has been given a cortisone shot and hopes to return after a few days of rest and rehab. Matt Duffy is handling third base for the Giants on Sunday.
Apr 12 - 2:35 PM

Casey McGehee has been diagnosed with a left knee strain.

McGehee suffered the injury Saturday while breaking out of the batter's box on a flyout to center field in the top of the first inning. It sounds like he may need a trip to the 15-day disabled list, though a full reevaluation of the injury is coming Sunday morning. Joaquin Arias took over at third base on Saturday in San Diego.
Apr 11 - 9:21 PM

Casey McGehee was lifted from Saturday's game against the Padres with an apparent injury.

McGehee doubled over in pain after a flyout to center field in the top of the first inning. It was hard to tell what happened, though there should be some sort of diagnosis from the Giants within the hour. Joaquin Arias entered the game to play third base.
Apr 11 - 9:05 PM

Casey McGehee hit a two-run home run in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

McGehee finished the game 2-for-5, doubling along with the two-run shot. He smacked the ninth-inning dinger off Diamondbacks' reliever Evan Marshall. McGehee has the joyful task of taking over the hot corner in San Francisco from free agent renegade Pablo Sandoval. Last season with the Marlins, the 32-year-old McGehee slashed .287/.355/.357. While the veteran doesn't offer much in terms of speed or power, he did drive in 76 runs for Miami and should post respectable RBI numbers in his new home by the bay.
Apr 9 - 1:09 AM

Casey McGehee went 1-for-3 in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Angels.

The performance causes his Cactus League average to fall to .419 (13-for-31). McGehee has the unenviable task of replacing Pablo Sandoval at third base. He performed well for the Marlins last season, especially in the first half when he hit .319 with 53 RBI in 407 plate appearances.
Mar 21 - 8:08 PM

Casey McGehee went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Athletics.

McGehee has been one of the stars of early spring, as he's now 10-for-20 (.500) with four doubles thus far. It's certainly what the Giants hoped they were getting when they acquired him from the Marlins this past offseason. McGehee will be the club's starting third baseman on Opening Day.
Mar 14 - 7:11 PM

Casey McGehee continued hit hot hitting in Friday's loss to the Rangers, going 1-for-2.

The free agent acquisition is making a strong early impression with his new club, hitting .471/.500/.588 through his first 17 at-bats. While he won't deliver much in terms of power and has little-to-no discernible speed, he should drive in plenty of runs as the everyday third baseman in San Francisco.
Mar 13 - 8:25 PM

Casey McGehee went 2-for-2 in the Giants' Cactus League loss to the Athletics Wednesday.

The Giants acquired McGehee from the Marlins this winter to fill the void left by Pablo Sandoval. The third baseman batted .287/.355/.357 with the Fish last year, and he'll look to continue that career resurgence in San Francisco.
Mar 4 - 6:47 PM

Giants and 3B Casey McGehee avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.8 million contract.

McGehee requested $5.4 million and was offered $4 million from the Giants when arbitration figures were exchanged on January 16. It took about a month for the two sides to find a middle ground. McGehee was traded to San Francisco in December for a pair of minor league right-handers and will open 2015 as the club's starting third baseman. He hit .287/.355/.357 with four homers and 76 RBI last season for the Marlins.
