Casey McGehee Elects Free Agency

Yankees infielder Casey McGehee has elected free agency, Danny Knobler of reports (on Twitter). Meister Sports Management represents McGehee, who had been a non-tender candidate in New York.

McGehee, 30, spent this past season with the Pirates and Yankees. He hit nine home runs and posted a .217/.284/.358 batting line in 352 plate appearances. MLBTR had projected a $2.9MM salary for McGehee if the Yankees tendered him a contract. The corner infielder doesn't have a significant platoon split over the course of his five-year career.

I’d like to see the Reds pick him up. He’d be a great replacement for Cairo and would provide a nice bat off the bench.

This would be a nice addition for the Angels.

Wonder if the Rays would kick the tires on him. Certainly would be cheap, and they need a 1B who can also backup Longoria at 3B, also plays 2B…

I think they have better options. McGehee is not that good of a hitter, and there is a reason he hasn’t played much 2B in recent years.

I’m surprised people think he’d be a good addition. Outside of the one anomaly good year with the Brewers, he hasn’t hit very well in the Majors, he’s a below average defender and doesn’t even have a particularly good platoon split that would make him a candidate for that either. I think he’ll be lucky to even approach that $2.9 million projection MLBTR had for him, I see him as a one year barely above the veteran minimum player right now.
