    Player Outlook

    It appears as though Casey McGehee's glory days are behind him, as the 34-year-old's 2015 and 2016 numbers were a far cry from the statistics he put up for the Brewers from 2009 to 2011 or his 2014 season with the Marlins, when he hit .287 in 691 plate appearances, driving in 76 runs. The veteran third baseman appeared in just 30 games for the Tigers in 2016, hitting .228 with four runs and one RBI in 96 plate appearances, while spending much of the season with Triple-A Toledo. McGehee's batting average on balls in play was just .269 last season, with an extremely low isolated power of .011. He also struggled taking walks, as his walk rate dropped to 3.1 percent, down from 8.1 percent in 2015. The free agent will look to find a minor league contract with a team looking for offensive help off the bench and willing to take a flyer on his past production, though he'll have to earn a roster spot in spring training.

    Player News
    • McGehee signed a one-year deal with Japan's Yomiuri Giants on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network reports. McGehee became a free agent in November and after a month of evaluating his options, the third basemen decided to play professional baseball in Japan. The 34-year-old batted .198 and .227 respectively over the past two major league seasons and so would likely not be a valuable fantasy asset even if he remained in the MLB.

    • Casey McGehee: Heads to free agency Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGehee was not extended a qualifying offer and is now a free agent, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. This comes as no surprise, as the veteran third baseman barely contributed at the major league level. McGehee will head into free agency and likely look to latch onto an organization willing to keep him around on a minor league contract.

    • Tigers' Casey McGehee: Recalled, starting Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGehee was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. He will be thrust into action right away, supplanting Andrew Romine at the hot corner against right-hander Miguel Gonzalez and the White Sox. Although McGehee has struggled in 22 games with Detroit this season, he turned in an .816 OPS at Toledo and may be a regular part of the rotation at third base while Nick Castellanos (hand) remains out.

    • Tigers' Casey McGehee: Optioned to Triple-A Toledo
      By RotoWire Staff

      McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. McGehee has struggled at the plate recently, having gone 10-for-51 (.196) over the last 14 games, bringing his batting average down to .232 for the season. He'll return to Toledo where he owns a solid .322/.376/.449 line with 49 RBI. In a corresponding move, JaCoby Jones was recalled from Toledo.

    • McGehee will start at third base and bat seventh in the order Sunday against the Rangers. Since Nick Castellanos (hand) landed on the DL last Sunday, McGehee has stepped in to start all seven of the Tigers' games at third base. During that span, McGehee gone 9-for-26 at the plate, but due to his low standing in that batting order, he's accrued only two runs and one RBI. Even so, the prospect of regular playing time during Castellanos' absence at least makes McGehee worth a look in AL-only formats.
