[2/27/2017] Yomiuri Giants exploring possibility of Casey McGehee at second base

The Yomiuri Giants are crowded at the infield corners and still lack a solid candidate at second base. During fielding practices on February 27, Casey McGehee spent time at second base. The thirty-four-year-old seems open to the idea, and if the Giants believe he can handle the position, it would allow them to use Shuichi Murata at third and Shinnosuke Abe at first.

[11/17/2016] The Hanshin Tigers and Casey McGehee

Sanspo posted a report on the morning of November 17 that the Hanshin Tigers made an offer to thirty-four-year-old Casey McGehee and were waiting to hear back from him. The report also mentioned that a number of other teams were in touch with McGehee and that the Tigers were late to the table.

Tokyo Sports provided an update later in the evening on the same day that said Hanshin decided to give up on the former Rakuten Eagle because they felt they could not make up for the lost time.
