McGehee went 2-for-5 with one run scored and two RBI in his return to Miami against the Reds Saturday.

Designated for assignment by the Giants for a second time last week, McGehee lands back with the team where he resurrected his career in 2014. McGehee will get at least a brief look as the Marlins' everyday third baseman with Martin Prado (shoulder) on the shelf, and a fresh start should do him some good after struggling with a .213/.275/.299 slash line over 127 at-bats in San Francisco.

McGehee will start at third base and bat fifth against the Reds on Saturday.

The 32-year-old signed back on with Miami earlier in the week after being designated for assignment by the Giants for a second time late last month. He doubled in a pinch-hit appearance Friday, and will slot in against right-hander Raisel Iglesias on Saturday for his first start of the year with the Marlins. It's uncertain what role McGehee will take on upon the return of Martin Prado (shoulder), who is currently on a minor league rehab assignment.

McGehee officially signed with the Marlins on Friday, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports.

McGehee posted a solid 2014 season with the Marlins, and he'll now rejoin the club. With Martin Prado still on the 15-day disabled list, the veteran third baseman could be a candidate play consistently right away. However, the lineup is pretty beat up at the moment, and he hasn't hit well this season, so expectation should be tempered for a while.

McGehee is expected to sign with the Marlins once he clears release waivers Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

McGehee had one of the better seasons of his career with Miami in 2014, so it looks like he'll try to find his old winning formula. His tenure in San Francisco was a disaster, losing the starting job to Matt Duffy and slashing .213/.275/.299 while grounding into double plays in more than 10.9 percent of plate appearances. He'll compete with Derek Dietrich for time at third base with the Marlins.

McGehee was designated for assignment Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group reports.

With Matt Duffy thriving at third base and Brandon Belt entrenched at first base, McGehee has only received 17 at-bats since the Giants recalled him June 6. The team will instead use a roster spot on Ehire Adrianza, a more defensive-minded backup infielder.

McGehee was recalled from Triple-A on Friday, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

McGehee did a good job at Triple-A, slashing .357/.391/.571 with two home runs in just 10 games, so the Giants rewarded him by bringing him back up. The Giants have currently been using Matt Duffy and Joaquin Arias at third base, and considering both players remain on the roster following McGehee's call-up, there could be a lot of mixing and matching going forward for the Giants at the hot corner.

McGehee accepted his assignment and was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

The Giants lost patience with the struggling McGehee, who could still contribute to the team's cause at some point before the end of the season. For now, Matt Duffy is getting the vast majority of the playing time at third base.

McGehee was designated for assignment Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group reports.

McGehee had been losing playing time to Matt Duffy of late, but few expected this move from the Giants. He had shown slight signs of improvement at the plate from April to May, but a .200/.254/.282 slash line simply wasn't going to cut it. McGehee can now elect to accept his designation, or become a free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

McGehee is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

McGehee will have now been held out of the starting lineup for three of the last six games, suggesting his hold on the third base position may be slipping towards Matt Duffy. The veteran should be available to pinch-hit, if needed, in the afternoon contest.

McGehee is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

McGehee will sit for a second straight game and for the fourth time in the team's last six games as Matt Duffy once again mans the hot corner. Perhaps he will get a chance against right-hander David Hale in Game 2, but McGehee is sporting a .189/.246/.274 batting line through 114 plate appearances and seems to have fallen behind Duffy in the eyes of manager Bruce Bochy.
