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.

Manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that he is riding the hot bat of Matt Duffy at the hot corner for the moment, but he is planning to get McGehee back in the lineup Wednesday. The two figure to continue sharing the third-base duties moving forward.
