McGehee agreed to a one-year contract with the Giants on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.The 32-year-old McGehee revived his career in Miami last season, batting .287 with a .355 OBP and 76 RBI. He managed just four home runs and grounded into 31 double plays (most in the majors), but McGehee has gone from one good situation to another and should at least garner interest in NL-only leagues. McGehee projects to bat behind Brandon Belt, Buster Posey and Hunter Pence against right-handed pitching.

McGehee will be headed to the Giants in a trade, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports.

The return for Miami is still uncertain, but McGehee will join the World Series champs, replacing Pablo Sandoval at third base. After spending 2013 with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Japan Pacific League, McGehee made his way back to the States and slashed .287/.355/.357 with 76 RBI in 160 games with the Marlins last season. He managed just four homers in 691 plate appearances, but his HR/FB rate was down at a ridiculously-low 2.5%, so that number figures to improve in 2015 even with the move to another pitcher's park. His RBI numbers may take a significant hit, however, while likely batting lower in the order with his new club.

McGehee went 2-for-4 and scored the Marlins' lone run during Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

McGehee resurrected his major league career with the Marlins in 2014, compiling a .289/.356/.359 slash line with 56 runs and 76 RBI heading into the season's final game. Despite his limited contributions in the power department, McGehee was one of the Marlins' most reliable run producers for the balance of the season. He's arbitration-eligible one more time in 2015 and the Marlins seem likely to bring him back a consistent bat and strong veteran presence in the locker room.

McGehee went 2-for-3 with three RBI in Thursday's win over Philadelphia.

McGehee has had an interesting season in his return to the majors, not supplying any power (just four homers), while hitting for average (.288), with 74 RBI. He signed a one-year contract in December, so it will be interesting to see if Miami elects to bring him back in 2015.

Failing to bounce back from a down month of July (.707 OPS), McGehee has gotten off to a 2-for-16 start to August.
