McGehee homers to help Marlins top Giants | 07/20/2014 4:05 PM
NewsCasey McGehee homered Sunday in the Marlins' 3-2 victory over the visiting Giants.
ImpactIt 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.
Jennings: Marlins won't trade Casey McGehee | 07/08/2014 10:25 AM
NewsMarlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.
ImpactNot 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 hits first homer | 05/11/2014 12:21 AM
NewsCasey McGehee finally hit his first homer of the year Saturday in a losing cause against the Padres.

ImpactMcGehee 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.

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

ImpactThe 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.
McGehee drives in three runs in Marlins' win | 04/03/2014 4:09 PM
NewsCasey 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.
ImpactMcGehee 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.

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

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

Marlins sign McGehee away from Japan | 12/18/2013 3:53 PM
NewsMarlins signed 3B Casey McGehee to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.
ImpactThe 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.
Report: Marlins sign 3B McGehee to 1-yr deal | 12/18/2013 1:34 PM
NewsThe Marlins have signed free agent third baseman Casey McGehee to a one-year deal, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.
Clark Spencer on Twitter
ImpactThe 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.
Marlins looking at McGehee, Betemit | 12/14/2013 2:22 PM
NewsThe Marlins are looking at Casey McGehee and Wilson Betemit in their attempts to land a third baseman.
ImpactMcGegee, 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 considering return to MLB | 10/02/2013 11:30 AM
NewsCasey McGehee is considering a return to MLB after playing in Japan in 2013.
ImpactMcGehee, 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.

McGehee hit just .217 with nine homers and a .643 OPS during his last stint in the majors in 2012.
