Casey McGehee 1B/3B MIA 2 Months

Casey McGehee finally hit his first homer of the year Saturday in a losing cause against the Padres.

McGehee was hitting .309 with 23 RBI in 136 at-bats, so it's not like he was off to a rough start. However, he was without a homer until taking Eric Stults deep in the first tonight.

Casey McGehee singled off the heel of Gonzalez Germen on a comeback in the bottom of the ninth Monday to plate the winning run as the Marlins beat the Mets 4-3.

McGehee still doesn't have a homer in 123 at-bats this season, but he's batting .309 and he's driven in 21 runs. The Marlins will keep hitting him in the middle of the order as long as he keeps racking up RBI, but sustained mixed-league value probably isn't in the offing.

Casey McGehee went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and an RBI single in Thursday's win over the Braves.

McGehee has had a nice week, notching three multi-hit games in his last five games. His double in the first inning gave the Marlins an early 1-0 lead, and his single in the seventh inning was the eventual game-winning hit, putting the Marlins up 5-4. McGehee's star has fallen after breaking out with 23 home runs and 104 RBI with the Brewers in 2011. The power hasn't been there yet, but McGehee has used a high average (now .305) to emerge as a key contributor to the Marlins' offense.

Casey McGehee went 3-for-4 with a walk and a double and two runs scored as the Marlins defeated the Braves on Wednesday.

McGehee was an RBI machine for the Marlins early in the season, but has knocked in only one run since April 20. However, with Wednesday night's effort, he brought his average up to .297. He remains productive as a bargain-bin grab signed by the Marlins back in December.

Casey McGehee drove in the only run in the Marlins' win over the Braves on Tuesday.

McGehee followed Giancarlo Stanton's fourth inning double with an RBI single, the only scoring in Tuesday's 1-0 win. It was his only hit in four at-bats. All McGehee's done in his return to Major League Baseball is bat .291 with 16 RBI through 21 games. That mark is good for fourth in the National League.

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.
