The Miami Marlins have signed third baseman Casey McGehee to a one-year deal.
McGehee spent the 2013 season playing in Japan where he compiled a .289/.371/.512 line with 27 homers in Japan’s Pacific League with the Rakuten Golden Eagles.
In parts of five seasons stateside McGehee appeared in 551 games with a .257/.314/.414 line with 61 home runs and 283 RBI.
The Marlins have trotted out five different players as their primary third baseman since trading Miguel Cabrera in 2007.
Casey McGehee will make it six.
McGehee, a 31-year-old free agent who spent last season playing in Japan following five years in the majors, has agreed to a 1-year contract with the Marlins, according to a source with knowledge of the agreement.
Free-agent third baseman Casey McGehee, who played for the Pirates and Mets last season after spending 2009-11 with the Milwaukee Brewers, is reportedly headed to Japan.
According to the Japanese site Sankei and MSN Japan, McGehee will sign a one-year deal worth 1.3 million with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Nippon Professional Baseball League.

Yankees third baseman Casey McGehee isn't the most likely big leaguer. While much of California is considered a baseball hotbed, with both north and south producing a huge number of baseball players, the Central Coast town of Santa Cruz doesn't seem like the kind of town that breeds the kind of competitiveness you typically see in professional athletes. In short, it's...

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.

Hopefully it doesn’t force Casey McGehee to miss any time. If you are going to have a “mild” injury, I guess the best time to do that is with a 10-0 lead in the last game before the All-Star Break.

Lost in the elation of yesterday's win was a single moment in the game that really pissed me and other like minded Brewers fans off. With the Brewers up five runs in the eighth inning and K-Rod due to bat at the top of the inning the Brewers called upon a pinch hitter. The hitter chosen by Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was Casey McGehee. Casey McGehee took about two pitches before...
