Casey McGehee returns to Marlins after being cut by Giants

Third baseman Casey McGehee, who was let go by the Giants last week, has agreed to a deal with the Marlins according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

McGehee played for the Marlins last season and was named NL Comeback Player of the Year, which got him a $4.8 million deal with the Giants that San Francisco immediately regretted. But here’s the thing: He wasn’t actually much good last season, award or no.

McGehee posted a modest .712 OPS with four homers in 160 games and erased much of that offensive value by grounding into a league-high 31 double plays. He was even worse for the Giants this year, hitting .213 with a .575 OPS and league-high 15 double plays in 49 games.
