Report: McGehee could be headed to San Francisco
The Giants are reportedly close to acquiring infielder Casey McGehee from the Miami Marlins.
Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel tweeted Friday evening that the clubs are nearing a deal that would send McGehee to San Francisco in exchange for minor league pitching.
Though details on which players the Giants would send to Miami are not yet known, a source told MLB.com that the Marlins would receive two lower-level Minor League pitchers. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal also reported that if the trade does happen, right-hander Hunter Strickland would not be included.
The defending champion Giants have been in need of a replacement for Pablo Sandoval since the third baseman signed with the Red Sox last month. The Marlins, meanwhile, have a crowded infield with the additions of Martin Prado, Dee Gordon and Michael Morse this offseason. It appears McGehee may be the odd man out.
The 32-year-old veteran hit .287/.355/.357 with 76 RBIs and four homers in his first season with the Marlins in 2014.
