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.

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.

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.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Friday that he's leaning towards hitting newcomer Casey McGehee sixth in his lineup this season.

Bochy plans to have Angel Pagan remain in the leadoff spot, with Joe Panik, Brandon Belt and Buster Posey occupying the second through fourth spots. Hunter Pence is likely to bat fifth, followed by McGehee, Nori Aoki and Brandon Crawford. It's a nice spot for the veteran third baseman who should remain a stable source of RBI.

Casey McGehee requested $5.4 million and was offered $4 million from the Giants when arbitration figures were exchanged.

MLBTradeRumors.com projected McGehee to earn just $3.5 through the arbitration process, so it seems as though he'll make out like a bandit however this one turns out. He returned to Major League Baseball with a bang in 2014, slashing .287/.355/.357 with four homers and 76 RBI for the Marlins.
Jan 16 - 10:49 PM

Giants acquired INF Casey McGehee from the Marlins for RHP Kendry Flores and RHP Luis Castillo.

The 32-year-old third baseman may seem like an underwhelming addition to replace Pablo Sandoval at the hot corner for the Giants, but if he can replicate the .287/.355/.357 that he hit in 2014 while playing solid defense, he'll win over Giants fans. Just don't expect much from a fantasy perspective, as his power was non-existent in Miami.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants have agreed to acquire Casey McGehee from the Marlins.

No word yet on the potential return package heading to the Fish in the deal, but both Hunter Strickland and Matt Duffy had been mentioned in trade talks.. McGehee is coming off a terrific season in 2014 where he slashed .287/.355/.357 with 76 RBI in 160 games. With what is available on the market, he's perhaps the best fit both offensively and defensively for the Giants.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants have had trade discussions with the Marlins involving Casey McGehee.

McGehee is suddenly expendable following the addition of Martin Prado. Rosenthal says that reliever Hunter Strickland and infielder Matt Duffy are two Giants players involved in the talks. After spending 2013 in Japan, McGehee won National League Comeback Player of the Year honors in 2014, batting .287/.355/.357 with four home runs and 76 RBI over 160 games.

MLB announced Friday that Casey McGehee was named as the NL Comeback Player of the Year.

The honor is well-deserved. After spending 2013 in Japan, McGehee returned to MLB this season and batted .287/.355/.357 with four home runs and 76 RBI over 160 games with the Marlins.

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.

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.
