Casey McGehee 3B SF 4 Months

McGehee went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in his return to the lineup Friday against the Reds.

After struggling through July and early August, McGehee got a breather Thursday which appears to have helped the veteran get back on track. The multi-hit effort was McGehee's first since July 26 and pushed his average back to an even .300 on the year. He's tallied 59 RBI for the Marlins through 113 games during a resurgent 2014 season.

McGehee is out of the Marlins' lineup Thursday against the Pirates, Joe Frisaro of reports.

McGehee has started all but one of the Marlins' 113 games to this point, but he'll sit Thursday as Donovan Solano mans third and Garrett Jones bats cleanup against right-hander Edinson Volquez. Failing to bounce back from a down month of July (.707 OPS), McGehee has gotten off to a 2-for-16 start to August.

Casey McGehee 3B SF 5 Months's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are likelier to extend Casey McGehee than trade him.

McGehee is a sell high candidate if there ever was one, but the Marlins evidently want to keep him around. The third baseman is eligible for arbitration this winter for a final time, so the Marlins wouldn't necessarily have to extend McGehee in order to keep him around for another year. McGehee, who has drawn interest from the Mariners, among other clubs, is batting .322 with 56 RBI this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners are among the teams interested in Casey McGehee.

McGehee has played his way into being a nice trade chip for the Marlins, batting .322 with 56 RBI. The Mariners are intent on finding a right-handed bat but have mostly been looking at outfielders. McGehee has played just one game in the outfield as a pro, but he could be used in the DH spot, with Corey Hart shifting to the outfield.

Casey McGehee homered Sunday in the Marlins' 3-2 victory over the visiting Giants.

It was a two-run shot to deep left-center field off Giants starter Tim Lincecum. McGehee is batting .322 with 56 RBI in 96 games this season, but Sunday's home run was only his second. Part of that is the park he calls home. Marlins GM Dan Jennings said earlier this month that McGehee will not be on the block at this year's July 31 trade deadline, so don't expect the power to improve all that much down the stretch.

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.

Not surprisingly, Jennings also confirmed that the Marlins have no plans to deal slugger Giancarlo Stanton, but it's a bit surprising that he has such a hard stance on McGehee. While the 31-year-old has put together a nice comeback season, he's not a long-term building block. Still, the Marlins don't appear interested in selling high.

McGehee was 7-for-13 in the series and has four multi-hit games in his last five, raising his average to .320. Even with a noticeable lack of power, McGehee has become a mixed league option in his return to MLB.

Casey McGehee went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
