McGehee signed a one-year deal with Japan's Yomiuri Giants on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

McGehee became a free agent in November and after a month of evaluating his options, the third basemen decided to play professional baseball in Japan. The 34-year-old batted .198 and .227 respectively over the past two major league seasons and so would likely not be a valuable fantasy asset even if he remained in the MLB.

McGehee was not extended a qualifying offer and is now a free agent, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as no surprise, as the veteran third baseman barely contributed at the major league level. McGehee will head into free agency and likely look to latch onto an organization willing to keep him around on a minor league contract.

McGehee was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

He will be thrust into action right away, supplanting Andrew Romine at the hot corner against right-hander Miguel Gonzalez and the White Sox. Although McGehee has struggled in 22 games with Detroit this season, he turned in an .816 OPS at Toledo and may be a regular part of the rotation at third base while Nick Castellanos (hand) remains out.

McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

McGehee has struggled at the plate recently, having gone 10-for-51 (.196) over the last 14 games, bringing his batting average down to .232 for the season. He'll return to Toledo where he owns a solid .322/.376/.449 line with 49 RBI. In a corresponding move, JaCoby Jones was recalled from Toledo.

McGehee will start at third base and bat seventh in the order Sunday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Since Nick Castellanos (hand) landed on the DL last Sunday, McGehee has stepped in to start all seven of the Tigers' games at third base. During that span, McGehee gone 9-for-26 at the plate, but due to his low standing in that batting order, he's accrued only two runs and one RBI. Even so, the prospect of regular playing time during Castellanos' absence at least makes McGehee worth a look in AL-only formats.

McGehee was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday. He'll bat seventh in the order and start at third base in the Tigers' game against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

With Nick Castellanos landing on the DL after fracturing his left hand in Saturday's game, McGehee will join the big club for the second time this season to add some depth at third base. Manager Brad Ausmus indicated duties at the hot corner would be shared among McGehee, Austin Romine and Mike Aviles, so none of those players will profile as a particularly attractive fantasy option unless somebody hits well enough to run away with the everyday gig.

McGehee cleared waivers and got optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

McGehee passed through the waiver period untouched by another club and will therefore stay with Detroit at their Triple-A affiliate. He's only made one at-bat at the major league level this season but has been impressive through 66 games with Toledo, slashing .323/.370/.440 with 32 runs and 27 RBI.

McGehee was designated for assignment Monday.

EDGE Analysis

McGehee was designated for assignment in order to make room for Dustin Molleken on both the 25-man roster and 40-man roster. The 33-year-old only had one at-bat with the Tigers, but after hitting .323 with four home runs and 27 RBI at Triple-A Toledo, he could prove valuable to a team looking for organizational depth.

McGehee's contract was purchased by the Tigers on Saturday, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

McGehee failed to make the Opening Day roster but has remained with the Tigers organization at Triple-A Toledo. The veteran infielder is slashing .323/.370/.440 with 27 RBI in 66 Triple-A games, and he'll now join the Tigers in what will likely be a utility role. In a corresponding move, Detroit DFA'd outfielder Wynton Bernard to clear room on the 40-man roster.
