Rakuten Eagles To Sign Casey McGehee

10:33am: McGehee obtained a $1.5MM guarantee, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter). The deal includes easily attainable incentives that can bring the value of the contract past $2MM.

7:27am: Free agent infielder Casey McGehee has agreed to play in Japan for the Rakuten Eagles, according to multiple Japanese reports (via Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker). Within this Sankei/MSN report Rakuten scouting director Hiroshi Abei acknowledges the sides have agreed to a deal, pending a physical. McGehee, a Meister Sports Management client, will earn $1.3MM on a one-year contract.

McGehee spent this past season with the Pirates and Yankees, appearing in 114 games. The 30-year-old posted a .217/.284/.358 batting line with nine home runs and 16 doubles in 352 plate appearances while playing first base, second base and third base. He earned $2.54MM in 2012 and elected free agency in October.

Earlier in the offseason, the Eagles added another prominent former MLB player, agreeing to a deal with Andruw Jones.
