Casey McGehee 1B/3B MIA 1 Day

Casey McGehee went 3-for-5 with two runs batted in as the Marlins beat the Nationals on Tuesday.

The Marlins, McGehee included, were squaring up Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg and reliever Craig Stammen well. McGehee knocked in both of his runs with a single in the bottom of the second, and now has 13 RBI. McGehee hasn't been a reliable run producer since 2010 with the Brewers.

Casey McGehee had a big day at the dish in Thursday's win over the Rockies, going 2-for-3 with three RBI, two walks, and a run scored.

McGehee had a game-tying triple in the seventh inning and gave the Marlins some insurance with a two-run single one inning later. After spending 2013 in Japan, the 31-year-old is 6-for-13 (.462) with a league-leading eight RBI through four games this year. Serving as the starting third baseman for the Marlins, he could prove to be a nice value in NL-only leagues.

Casey McGehee knocked in four runs with a pair of doubles versus the Rockies on Monday.

McGehee got to his cleanup tonight against a lefty. Garrett Jones figures to occupy that spot against righties for now, but it's not like Jones should be guaranteed anything; there aren't any true No. 4 or 5 hitters in that Miami lineup.

Casey McGehee hit his second spring homer in the Marlins' 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

McGehee has picked it up some and is now hitting .245/.333/.377 in 53 at-bats for the spring. The Marlins will give him every chance to stick as their regular third baseman. He might keep the job, but we don't expect him to make much of an impact in fantasy leagues.

Casey McGehee hit his first homer of the spring and walked against the Braves on Saturday.

McGehee is off to a 4-for-14 start in his bid to secure the third base job in Miami. As long as he's decent this spring, he should start on Opening Day.

Marlins signed 3B Casey McGehee to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

The deal includes incentives, which haven't yet been announced. McGehee had to move across the ocean after a few terrible major league seasons, but he pumped life back into a career being read its last rites by slashing .289/.371/.512 with 27 homers in Japan's Pacific League in 2013. For the Marlins, McGehee represents a no-risk, medium-reward transaction. He should slot into the last half of Miami's 2014 lineup and carries some NL-only intrigue.

The Marlins have signed free agent third baseman Casey McGehee to a one-year deal, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

The 31-year-old punished pitchers across the sea this past season, slashing 289/.371/.512 with 27 homers in Japan's Pacific League. McGehee, who was Masahiro Tanaka's teammate with the Rakuten Golden Eagles, will join a lineup in South Florida that includes Rafael Furcal, Christian Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton, Garrett Jones and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. NL-only owners should keep an eye on the former Brewer this spring.

The Marlins are looking at Casey McGehee and Wilson Betemit in their attempts to land a third baseman.

McGegee, 31, is coming off a big year in Japan in which he hit .289/.371/.512 with 27 homers, but it sounds like he'd rather play in MLB if the money is similar. That probably means a team will have to offer him at least $2.5 million-$3 million. Betemit is the better bet of the two offensively, but defense is a big issue there, making him a less-than-ideal option.

Casey McGehee is considering a return to MLB after playing in Japan in 2013.

McGehee, 30, batted .289/.371/.512 with 27 home runs and 90 RBI over 137 games this season with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan's Pacific League. He's hoping to parlay the big year into an opportunity with an MLB team, but he hasn't closed the door on returning to Japan. "It has been a great season in Japan and at the end of the season he will decide whether to continue in Japan or return here," said Barry Meister. McGehee hit just .217 with nine homers and a .643 OPS during his last stint in the majors in 2012.

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.
