Third baseman Casey McGehee and the Giants have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $4.8 million deal.

Acquired from the Marlins to replace Pablo Sandoval at third base, McGehee hit .287 with four homers and a .712 OPS in 160 games last season. He was an All-Star game “Final Vote” candidate based on a high RBI total in the first half, but ended up with a measly .357 slugging percentage and led the league by hitting into 31 double plays.

McGehee is 32 years old and hasn’t cracked a .750 OPS in the majors since 2010. He asked for $5.4 million and the Giants countered at $4 million.
