Watch as Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee goes deep to left-center field for a first-inning two-run homer off Giants starter Tim Lincecum on Sunday afternoon in Miami …
McGehee is batting .322 with 56 RBI in 96 games, but that was only his second home run of the season.
MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.
Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.
The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
