Casey McGehee is back with the Giants after a two-week demotion to Triple-A

Casey McGehee being dropped from the 40-man roster and demoted to Triple-A lasted all of two weeks, as the Giants have recalled the 32-year-old third baseman from the minors.

McGehee hit well at Triple-A, going 15-for-42 (.357) with two homers and three doubles in 10 games, but he was horrendous in 35 games for the Giants on a $4.8 million salary and has hit a combined .245 with a .657 OPS in 464 games since 2011 while also grounding into double plays at an extremely high rate.

Right-hander Jean Machi going on the disabled list with a strained groin is what opened up a roster spot for McGehee’s quick return.
