Casey McGehee 1B/3B NYY 6 Months
Casey McGehee has agreed to a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan's Pacific League.
It's a little surprising McGehee wasn't able to find a job in the states, but it appears he likely would have had to settle for a minor league deal. It's been quite a fall for the 30-year-old, as he's just two seasons removed from a 23-homer, 104-RBI campaign. He batted only .217/.284/.358 with nine homers and a .643 OPS in 114 games this past season between the Pirates and Yankees.

Casey McGehee has elected free agency.
McGehee was presumably removed from the 40-man roster at some point and refused a minor league assignment. The 29-year-old was almost certainly going to be non-tendered, anyway. He batted just .217/.284/.358 with nine homers and a .643 OPS in 114 games this season between the Pirates and Yankees.

Casey McGehee will make his Yankees' debut at first base Wednesday against the Orioles.
McGehee was acquired from the Pirates on Tuesday for right-hander Chad Qualls. The Yankees are hopeful that Mark Teixeira (wrist) will be back within a few days, so McGehee figures to get most of his playing time at third base while Alex Rodriguez (hand) is on the mend. He's worth a look in AL-only leagues.

Casey McGehee had three hits, including a solo homer, leading the Pirates to a 6-3 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.
McGehee finished the night 3-for-5 with a run scored and pair of RBI. He lined an RBI single to center off Marco Estrada in the sixth inning to pull the Buccos to within one at 4-3, then added a valuable insurance run with his solo blast off Manny Parra in the eighth inning. Since the calendar flipped to June, McGehee has been a completely different player, hitting .310 (36-for-116) with seven homers and 25 RBI in 36 games.

Casey McGehee left Sunday's game with a mild left groin strain.
McGehee pulled up while beating out an infield single in the sixth inning, which was his third hit of the game. While it's good that it's considered mild, he still may not be ready for the start of the second half. He was replaced by Gorkys Hernandez.

Casey McGehee went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.
McGehee is batting just .246/.316/.333, continuing the prolonged slump that began in his final year with the Brewers. He also has zero home runs in 76 plate appearances this season, and carries no fantasy value.

Casey McGehee went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer Friday as the Pirates and Rays played to a 3-3 tie.
With a .292 average and seven RBI in 48 at-bats, McGehee isn't quite tearing it up this spring, but he is certainly outproducing Pedro Alvarez. He'll certainly start against lefties once the season begins. Whether he'll get playing time against righties at the expense of Alvarez or first baseman Garrett Jones remains to be seen.

Pirates and 3B Casey McGehee avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract.
No word yet on the dollar amount. McGehee requested $2.725 million and was offered $2.35 million from the Pirates when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. It took over three weeks for the two sides to make a compromise.
