In need of infield reinforcement with Alex Rodriguez sidelined due to a broken left hand and Mark Teixeira nursing a sore left wrist, the New York Yankees acquired Casey McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for reliever Chad Qualls. The Yankees will replace Qualls in the bullpen by recalling Joba Chamberlain from his rehab assignment, general manager Brian Cashman said. McGehee, 29, has been the Pirates' regular first baseman this season, but he was the Milwaukee Brewers' regular third baseman the previous two years. His trade value was down thanks to his disappointing numbers this year: .230 average, .297 on-base percentage, .377 slugging percentage, eight homers and 35 RBI in 92 games. Over his past 15 games, he hit .122 (6-for-49) with one double, one homer and four RBI. Qualls, 33, had been acquired by the Yankees from the Philadelphia Phillies on July 1 in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. In eight appearances for New York, the...

AROUND THE WEB
When the trade deadline came and went yesterday the Yankees remained relatively quiet. However, the Yankees did fill one need with the under-the-radar acquisition of third basemen Casey McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Chad Qualls.
McGehee, 29, fills the roll of a back-up infielder that can play both first and third base. McGehee comes in at the perfect time Alex...
I love this photo. Don't get me wrong. I know it's frowned upon. But I was hoping to see some Joba Antics yesterday anyway. Alas, Joba Chamberlain didn't pitch well enough to warrant them. In his first appearance since June 2011, Joba pitched 1.2 innings, gave up 2 runs on 4 hits, and walked 1 batter. He threw 28 pitches, 16 of which were strikes. His velocity hovered...
This isn’t exactly what the Yankees wanted. But they’ll take it.
After being in the market for a pitcher most of the month, injuries to Eric Chavez and Alex Rodriguez made the Yankees change their stance on what positions to fill, leading them to acquire corner infielder Casey McGehee from the Pirates in exchange for RHP Chad Qualls. McGehee is hitting .230 with 8 homers and...
Traded to the Yankees, Casey McGehee decided to shave his beard in private. No televised grooming, like Jose Reyes had when his dreadlocks were shorn on the MLB Network last winter.
''Reyes might be able to pull it off. I don't think they want to watch a chubby white guy shave his beard off,'' McGehee said Wednesday after reporting to New York.

News of the deal came just after the trade deadline as the Pirates and Yankees were able to squeak out a deal that will send corner infielder Casey McGehee to the Yankees for right-handed reliever Chad Qualls.
Qualls, 33, has a 4.89 ERA and 21:12 K:BB ratio over 38 2...
I didn't expect Joba Chamberlain to come back this season from his trampoline disaster in spring training. Heck, I wasn't sure if he would be be able to come back at all in his career. Yet there he was on August 1 in a Yankee game. Good for him. While he didn't pitch well yesterday -- he gave up four hits and two runs in 1 2/3 innings -- at least he was pitching in the...
